About Ryanair

Ryanair flights have taken the European market by storm since the airline first got going in 1984. Like Aer Lingus, Ryanair is an established air operator that has its headquarters in the Republic of Ireland. The company offers some codeshare operations with Air Europa following a deal it signed in May 2017 and is among the country's biggest air service providers of short-haul flights. From 1992, when the European Union deregulated much of the air industry, Ryanair has established itself as a low-cost air operator, providing services from the UK and Ireland to destinations all over Europe, including many cities which had not previously enjoyed direct flights.

These days, the management team at Ryanair pride themselves on the average ticket price the business charges for flights. In 2013, the low-cost model was amended somewhat when the airline announced a tranche of customer service improvements it planned to make. The airline uses Boeing 737 jets in the main and offers around 2,000 services per day. In total, 36 countries have Ryanair flights taking off or landing from them each week. Over 130 million passengers enjoy Ryanair services in an average year, more than British Airways.

How do I check-in online with Ryanair?

Ryanair online check-in is encouraged. By far the majority of Ryanair's passengers do their online check-in process via the company's website, but it is also possible to do this via a smart device app that the airline has developed. This is available for download by iOS and Android users. Early check-in is offered by Ryanair for passengers who have also chosen to purchase the particular seat they wish to occupy. In such circumstances, it is possible to use either the app or the website to confirm your check-in up to 30 days ahead of the flight. Standard check-in, which is offered without an additional fee, is possible from four days ahead of your departure. All that is needed is to enter your six-digit reservation number and to confirm. You will then be given a boarding pass which you can either print out or store on your mobile device to use at the gate.

Although nearly all of Ryanair's services use online check-in to confirm flights, it is not possible everywhere. If you are flying on a Ryanair service from Agadir, Essaouira, Fez or Nador, then it is not possible to use an online check-in process. The same currently applies to flights out of Oujda, Marrakesh, Rabat, Tangier, Kefalonia and Volos.

What is my checked baggage allowance on Ryanair?

In January 2018, Ryanair's baggage policy changed. Passengers are charged to take up to two items of checked baggage onto a Ryanair flight. There is no fixed fee that the airline operates for checked baggage – it all depends on the route that you have chosen as well as how busy the service happens to be. Ryanair recommends booking checked baggage when you purchase your tickets since this is the cheapest way of ensuring these items make it into the hold of the aircraft on your flight. Checked baggage must not exceed dimensions of 81 cm x 119 cm x 119 cm. There are two weight categories that are allowed, one that is up to 15 kg and the other that is up to 20 kg, so you need to know the weight of the items in your bag when you choose which one is appropriate for you. Otherwise, you may face excess baggage fees when you turn up at the airport. Excess baggage rules allow passengers to take on items that weigh up to to a total of 32 kg, according to Ryanair's current policy although fees are levied per kilo of extra weight that is checked into the hold.

What hand luggage can I take on Ryanair?

The Ryanair hand luggage allowance that is applicable to most passengers is a single item that does not exceed the dimensions of 35cm by 20cm by 20cm. If a second item of hand luggage is brought to the gate by a passenger, then this will be placed in the hold of the aircraft for reclamation later without charge so long as it does not exceed a size of 55 cm x 40 cm x 20 cm. An exception to this rule is made for passengers who have reduced mobility so long as they have pre-booked airport special assistance.

A further exception to the usual hand luggage rules that Ryanair employs is made for passengers who have 'Priority and 2 Cabin Bags' or 'Plus/Flexi' tickets. The same small bag allowance is offered for such passengers as those with standard tickets. In addition, 'Priority and 2 Cabin Bags' as well as 'Plus/Flexi' ticket holders may take an extra cabin bag aboard, so long as it does not exceed 55 cm x 40 cm x 20 cm in size and is not over 10 kg in weight.

Where does Ryanair fly from?

UK-based passengers can obtain Ryanair services from a number of British airports. Many Ryanair routes are served from its main UK hub at Stansted Airport in Essex. Like EasyJet, Ryanair also offers destinations from its base in Luton. Popular Ryanair routes include:

Unfortunately I could not travel to Spainand therefore did not travel back with Ryan air. I tried to change my ticket but after 12 hrs trying over two days I gave up. My friends who did fly back on that flight said there were only 26 people on the flight .if all the other people who had booked the flight had the same experience as me when trying to change the flight , then all I can say is that it was easy money for Ryanair. Completely different experience with Easyjet . I was able to change my flight out to Spain without any trouble . Won't use Ryanair again.
