All passengers on Ryanair cheap flights are required to check-in online and print out or download their boarding pass. Online check-in opens 30 days prior to the flight departure time for those customers who have purchased an allocated seat or, 7 days prior to flight departure time for those who wish to be allocated a seat free of charge.
The Ryanair online check-in is available up to 2 hours before the flight with failure to check-in online before the deadline resulting in an airport check-in fee of £70.
Hand luggage allowance
All passengers, excluding infants aged 8 days to 23 months*, are allowed one cabin bag weighing up to 10kg, in addition to 1 personal item. The new Ryanair hand luggage guidelines define a personal item as one of the following: handbag, briefcase, laptop, shop purchase, camera, etc.
Hand luggage maximum size: 55cm x 40cm x 20cm
Personal item maximum size: 35cm x 20cm x 20cm

Checked baggage allowance
On Ryanair flights all checked bags are subject to a fee. Passengers are permitted up to two checked bags each of either 15kg or 20kg upon payment of the applicable fee during the online booking process. Fees charged for checked bags are also charged per person per flight. Bags larger than the permitted dimensions, 81cm x 119cm x 119cm, or exceeding the maximum weight of 32kg, are not accepted.
It is possible to add checked baggage to your booking after reservation but higher baggage fees will apply. Similarly, the fees charged for checking in a bag at the airport, or with the Ryanair call centre, are considerably higher than when carried out online.
Prices for checked baggage vary in accordance with the season and depend upon if the bag weighs 15kg or 20kg. All bags exceeding the aforementioned checked baggage weight allowance are subject to an additional fee per excess kilo.
The Ryanair check-in desks are open 2 hours before the scheduled flight time and close 40 minutes prior to departure. Passengers are recommended to be at the departure gate 30 minutes prior with the gates closing 20 minutes before flight departure time. Any passengers arriving after this time will not be allowed to board.
