Ryanair to reduce checked bag fees to discharge boarding delays

Ryanair, Europe’s No 1 airline, as partial of a “Always Getting Better” programme announced new reduced checked bag fees (and increasing check-in bag sizes) to inspire some-more business to check in bags and revoke a series of business with 2 bags during a boarding gates. As too many business are availing of Ryanair’s softened 2 giveaway carry-on bags service, and with high bucket factors (97% in August) there is not adequate beyond cabin space for this volume of carry-on bags, that is causing boarding/flight delays.

To inspire some-more business to check-in some bags and revoke a volume of carry-on bags, Ryanair will deliver a following bag process changes on all flights from 1st Nov next:

  • The check-in bag stipend will boost from 15kg to 20kg for all bags
  • The customary check-in bag price will be cut from €/£35 to €/£25 for this 20kg bag
  • Only Priority Boarding business (including Plus, Flexi Plus Family Plus) will be authorised to move dual carry-on bags on a aircraft*
  • All other (i.e. non-priority) business will usually be authorised to move one smaller carry-on bag on house a aircraft, while their second (bigger) wheelie bag contingency be placed in a reason (free of charge) during a boarding gate.

Ryanair’s Kenny Jacobs said:

“These bag process changes will cost Ryanair over €50m p.a. in reduced checked bag fees. However, we trust charity bigger bags during reduced fees will inspire some-more business to cruise checking-in a bag, that will revoke a high volume of business we have with 2 carry-on bags during a boarding gates, that is causing moody delays due to vast numbers of embankment bag and cabin bag offloads.

We wish that by restricting non-priority business to one tiny carry-on bag – their wheelie bag contingency be placed in a hold, giveaway of assign during a boarding embankment – this will speed adult a boarding of flights and discharge moody delays being caused by not carrying sufficient beyond cabin space on bustling flights to accommodate over 360 (182 business x 2 bags) carry-on bags.

These reduce bag fees and increasing bag distance allowances will come into play for all bookings for transport after 1st November, and we wish a business will suffer a assets of a new simplified bag policy.”
