From 15 January 2018 Ryanair will only allow certain priority boarding customers to bring two carry-on bags on the aircraft, all other customers will only be allowed to bring one smaller carry-on bag on board, while their second (bigger) wheelie bag (or trolley) will be placed in the hold free of charge at the boarding gate. Ryanair encourages passengers to book check-in bags and to reduce the volume of carry-on bags.

The airline is clearly struggling with hand luggage after its two-carry on bag policy proved too popular with customers. Reducing flight delays is one of the top priorities at the Irish low-cost airline, effectively speeding up the boarding process by limiting trolleys and wheelie bags on board.

Ryanair this week reminded customers that its new cabin bag policy that will come into effect in one month’s time:

From 15th January 2018:

  • Only Priority Boarding customers (including Plus, Flexi Plus & Family Plus) will be allowed to bring two carry-on bags on the aircraft*
  • All other (i.e. non-priority) customers will only be allowed to bring one smaller carry-on bag on board, while their second (bigger) wheelie bag will be placed in the hold (free of charge) at the boarding gate.

Ryanair’s new bags policy already includes cuts to checked bag fees (from €35 to €25) and an increase in the check-in bag allowance from 15kg to 20kg to encourage more customers to book check-in bags and reduce the volume of carry-on bags.

Ryanair’s Kenny Jacobs said:

“We’re reminding our customers that from 15th January 2018, only Priority Boarding customers will be allowed to bring two carry-on bags on the aircraft. All other customers will be allowed to bring one smaller carry-on bag on board, while their second (bigger) wheelie bag will be placed in the hold (free of charge) at the boarding gate.

This will speed up the boarding of flights and eliminate flight delays, alongside our new checked bag policy which offers our customers lower bag fees for a 33% increase in their checked bag allowance.”

* Priority Boarding can be purchased for just €/£5 at the time of booking or added to a booking for €/£6 and is available up to one hour prior to scheduled departure.
