Ryanair delays introduction of new baggage policy

 2 Nov 2017

Ryanair has delayed the introduction of new restrictions on carry-on baggage until mid-January 2018, “to allow customers more time to adjust to the changes, particularly during the busy Christmas period”.

Customers can currently take two pieces of luggage on board – one bag not exceeding 55cm x 40cm x 20cm in size and 10kg in weight, and another smaller piece not exceeding 35cm x 20cm x 20cm.

The new policy will see non-priority passengers forced to hand over the larger cabin bag at the gate, where it will be stored in the hold free of charge. Priority customers (including Plus, Flexi Plus and Family Plus passengers) will continue to be able to take both bags on board.

The changes, which were announced in September and had been due to be introduced on 1 November – will now take effect on 15 January 2018.

However changes to checked baggage allowances and fees (which were announced in tandem, and aimed at encouraging more customers to check in bags) are already in place. These see check-in luggage fees drop from £35 to £25, and the allowance increase from 15kg to 20kg.
