Ryanair and Samsonite launch guaranteed carry-on bag


Ryanair and Samsonite have launched a Samsonite designed hard-shell carry-on bag which is guaranteed to meet Ryanair’s carry-on bag dimensions and fit Ryanair’s bag sizers and luggage compartments.


This year 75m passengers will snap up Ryanair’s guaranteed lowest fares and over 50m will save even more by travelling with only Ryanair’s generous 10KG free hand baggage allowance. To encourage even more passengers to switch to carry-on luggage Ryanair’s guaranteed carry-on bag costs just €99/£89 (a 33% discount on the RRP), including delivery anywhere in Europe and is exclusively available on


Passengers can purchase the bag during their booking, from ‘manage my booking’ or directly from, with no flight booking required.


Ryanair’s Stephen McNamara said:

“This year 75m passengers will travel on Ryanair’s guaranteed lowest fares and over 50m will travel with just carry-on bags as Ryanair continues to encourage passengers to travel light. To ensure all passengers can get the maximum benefit of our generous, FREE 10KG carry-on baggage allowance we asked Samsonite to develop a lightweight, durable, hard-shell carry-on bag which is guaranteed to match our advised hand luggage dimensions. This great value bag, which costs just €99/£89 including delivery, is available exclusively on”


President of Samsonite Europe, Fabio Rugarli, said:

"Samsonite is pleased to launch this well-priced, practical and compact cabin bag, which is guaranteed to meet the hand-luggage dimension advised by Ryanair.  We know that there is nothing more reassuring than travelling to the airport with the knowledge that your hand luggage is guaranteed to fit into the aircraft cabin and with the guarantee of Samsonite quality, this bag will ensure hassle-free happy flights for years to come."
