Ryanair to increase baggage fees
Ryanair is to increase its checked-in baggage fees by 25% for next summer.
Published 10 December 2011 in News
No-frills airline Ryanair is increasing checked-in luggage fees from £20 to £25 per bag during June, July, August and September 2012.
The higher charges will also be levied for flights during the Christmas period in 2012. The changes apply to online bookings made after December 15. Online charges from October to May will remain at £15 per bag.
Passengers who use call centres or paying at the airport for their hold baggage will have to face increases from £35 to £60.
Ryanair will all increase their "reissue penalty" for a boarding card from £40 to £60 from January 15.
Communications director Stephen McNamara said:
"Ryanair continues to incentivise passengers to travel light especially during peak periods by raising our online checked-in baggage fees.
"As always, baggage fees are avoidable. Over 70% of Ryanair passengers will be unaffected by these changes as they already travel with no checked-in bags and instead use Ryanair’s free of charge 10kg carry on allowance."
