Ryanair and Samsonite launch approved carry-on bag
Thursday 20, May 2010
Ryanair has announced a new partnership with Samsonite, the world’s biggest luggage provider, to sell a Samsonite designed softsided carry-on bag which (when properly packed*) complies with Ryanair’s carry-on bag weight and size restrictions.
This year 73m passengers will snap up Ryanair’s guaranteed lowest fares. Over 50m of these passengers will save even more money by travelling without checked-in bags while availing of Ryanair’s generous 10kg FREE hand baggage allowance. To encourage more passengers to switch to carry-on bags Ryanair and Samsonite have designed a quality, durable, lightweight carry-on bag which (when properly packed*) complies with Ryanair’s approved carry-on bag dimensions.
Ryanair’s approved Samsonite carry-on bag is available for just €79/£69 which includes free delivery anywhere in Europe exclusively at www.ryanair.com.
Ryanair’s Stephen McNamara said,
“This year 73m passengers will travel on Ryanair’s guaranteed lowest fares with over 50m of them travelling without checked in bags. Ryanair encourages all passengers to travel with just one piece of carry-on baggage and to ensure they can get the maximum benefit of our generous, FREE 10KG carry-on baggage allowance we have developed a lightweight, durable, top quality carry-on bag with Samsonite. At just €79/£69 including free delivery, this is a quality product at a great price.”
President of Samsonite Europe Fabio Rugarli, said,
"Samsonite's global expertise in producing innovative luggage to suit all travel occasions, made this project with Ryanair an appealing partnership. Our design and technology specialists responded to the brief, creating well-priced, practical and compact luggage to fit the absolute precise measurements of Ryanair's hand luggage specifications. We know that there is nothing more reassuring than travelling to the airport with the knowledge that your hand luggage will fit into the aircraft cabin."
*As this Samsonite bag is softsided, if over-packed it may not fit into Ryanair’s baggage sizers and in such cases Ryanair will require it to be carried as checked-in baggage.
More and more travellers think that researching and planning a European city break is half the fun and they're not interested in pre-arranged trips or escorted tours. Self-guided tours offer a lot of advantages but require some guidance and good resources.
With the recent wild fires, disrupting flights and increasing air pollution, environmental quality is a growing factor in attracting tourists.
