CHECKED-IN BAG FEES TO INCREASE TO €20 PER BAG FOR JULY & AUGUST
Ryanair has announced that it will incentivise all of its passengers to travel light during the peak summer months by increasing checked-in baggage fees for July and August to €20 per bag, for all bookings made after midnight (24:00hrs) Wed 7th April.
Checked-in bag fees remain at €15 for passengers travelling outside of the two peak summer months of July and August. Passengers checking in bags in June or September, for example will pay €15 for a checked in bag. Ryanair urged all of its passengers to avoid checked-in baggage fees by travelling with carry-on bags only using Ryanair’s FREE 10KG carry-on baggage allowance.
Ryanair’s Stephen McNamara said:
“Ryanair is determined to incentivise passengers to travel light this summer by increasing our checked-in baggage fees for the months of July and August only. These baggage fees, which are avoidable by passengers, will apply to bookings made after midnight (24:00hrs) Wednesday for travel in July and August. From 1st September the checked-in bag fee will return to its current level of €15. Over 70% of all Ryanair passengers will be unaffected by these changes because they travel with no checked-in bags.”
