Ryanair to reduce baggage fees in bid to ease delays

Ryanair is to reduce its charges for checking in bags as well increasing the check-in weight allowance.

The Irish low-cost carrier is raising the check-in allowance from 15 kilograms to 20 kilograms, as well reducing the check-in bag fee from £35 to £25.

The move is being made because Ryanair’s current policy of allowing two free cabin bags has meant that there is not enough overhead storage space in the aircraft, which is causing boarding and flight delays.

As part of the policy change, which will be implemented for flights from November 1 onwards, only Ryanair’s Priority Boarding passengers will still be allowed to take two carry-on bags onboard the aircraft.

Other passengers with two bags will have their larger piece of luggage placed in the hold at the gate with no additional charge.
