Ryanair urges passengers to travel light during peak summer months


Ryanair, the world’s favourite airline, today (6th Apr) announced that it will incentivise all of its passengers to travel light during the peak summer months by increasing checked-in baggage fees for July and August to €20 per bag, for all bookings made after midnight (24:00hrs) Wed 7th April.



Checked-in bag fees remain at €15 for passengers travelling outside of the two peak summer months of July and August. Passengers checking in bags in June or September, for example will pay €15 for a checked in bag. Ryanair urged all of its passengers to avoid checked-in baggage fees by travelling with carry-on bags only using Ryanair’s FREE 10KG carry-on baggage allowance.


Ryanair’s Stephen McNamara said:

“Ryanair is determined to incentivise passengers to travel light this summer by increasing our checked-in baggage fees for the months of July and August only. These baggage fees, which are avoidable by passengers, will apply to bookings made after midnight (24:00hrs) Wednesday for travel in July and August. From 1st September the checked-in bag fee will return to its current level of €15. Over 70% of all Ryanair passengers will be unaffected by these changes because they travel with no checked-in bags.”
