Customers to pay between €5 and €8 for a cabin bag

Ryanair passengers will no longer be able to take a 10 kilo bag on board free of charge.

The airline says customers will now have to pay between 5 and 8 euro to bring larger pieces of hand luggage.

Under the new rules, non-priority passengers can only bring one small personal bag that can fit under a seat in front, free of charge.

Kenny Jacobs, Ryanair’s chief marketing officer, said: “This new policy will speed up the boarding and cut flight delays. 60% of customers will be unaffected by these changes and we expect that the other 40% will either choose to buy priority boarding or a 10kg check bag, or will choose to travel with only one free small bag.”

The changes take effect from November 1st.
