Ryanair’s new bag policy went live on January 15, offering lower prices and greater weight allowance for hold luggage.

The changes made by the airline have seen baggage fees lowered from €/£35 to €/£25 per checked bag, while the maximum weight of checked bags has been increased by a third, from 15 kilogrammes to 20 kilogrammes.

Meanwhile, the airline’s allowance of two free carry-on bags for all customers continues. Non-priority customers can bring two free carry-on bags but will be required to put the bigger of the two in the hold (free of charge) at the boarding gate to avoid boarding delays.

Ryanair’s Kenny Jacobs said yesterday: “We’re pleased to launch our new cabin bag policy today which has been implemented successfully and we believe it will speed up the boarding of flights and eliminate flight delays, alongside our new checked bag policy which offers our customers lower bag fees for a 33% increase in their checked bag allowance.”
