For some time, the low-cost airline Ryanair has been modifying its hand luggage policies. In January 2017 they already applied a change with which the suitcase of 55x40x20 cm traveled in the cellar, without any additional cost. But if a passenger wanted to take it in the cabin, that is, carry two pieces of hand on the plane, she had to pay for it. This was the regulation in force until last week, as on November 1 came into force a new one with which the airline intends to reduce delays in flights. Below we explain what changes this new luggage policy of Ryanair has introduced.
What is the new baggage regulations?
With the modification of the regulation of hand luggage, from November 1 onwards, you can only carry a small piece of personal luggage on board, which can be a handbag, a backpack or a briefcase, as long as it complies with the maximum dimensions (40 cm x 20 cm x 25 cm) and fit under the front seat. Therefore, if you want to take a cabin suitcase you have two options:
Non-priority customers who have not added a baggage to their reservation can buy the option to carry a suitcase with 10 kg wheels at the airport baggage delivery desk for 20 euros or 25 euros at the boarding gate. But keep in mind that if the free small suitcase for non-priority customers does not fit in the suitcase meter, an additional charge of 25 euros will be applied and your suitcase will be tagged and sent to the aircraft hold, so you must Pick it up at the baggage area at the destination.
For checked baggage, Ryanair has also updated its policy, unifying with it the price (€ 25) and size (20 kg). Each passenger may invoice a maximum of 3 suitcases subject to the corresponding payment for their billing, choosing the purchase of a baggage allowance of 20 kilos when they make their initial reservation. Charges for checked baggage are charged per person per trip. After making the purchase, checked baggage can be added to the reservation up to 2 hours before the scheduled departure of the flight, but with a higher price: 40 euros per person and flight through the section My reservation, the telephone assistance service at Ryanair customer (902 051292 and 902 585 230) or the airport counter.
A detail that is also important to take into account is that on selected flights and during high season, for example, Christmas, Easter and Easter or summer holidays, the fee for invoicing luggage will be 35 euros per person and flight. Passengers who exceed the allowed billing weight must pay the amount stipulated for excess baggage in force on the day of the trip, which is currently 11 euros per kilo.
Our main advice is that before buying any of the rates that Ryanair proposes for luggage, plan your trip and take into account the number of days, weather and plans and activities for your trip, among other issues.
