Ryanair's policy of allowing two free bags on airplanes has been given the heave ho.
The carefree days of passengers bringing two bags on flights, at no cost, are well and truly over.
Previously, travelers were allowed one normal sized cabin bag as well as one small bag for free, so you could bring the likes of your iPads, laptop or handbags etc.
However the airline have scrapped the policy as too many people were supposedly taking advantage of the two free carry-on bags service. In a further move, Ryanair have said they will reduce checked bag fees by €10, to encourage more travellers to check in bags on their trips.
Only priority boarding customers will be allowed to avail of the two carry-on bags rule.
The Ryanair one bag policy rule will come into place on November 1, so anybody flying with the airline should be prepared for some changes:
- The check-in bag allowance will increase from 15kg to 20kg for all bags.
- The standard check in bag fee for the 20kg bag will be cut by €10.
- Priority boarding can be purchased for €/£5 at the time of booking or added on to a booking for €/£6. You can do this up to one hour prior to scheduled departure.
