Ryanair is an Irish low-cost airline founded in 1985. Their headquarters are located in Swords, Dublin in Ireland. Along with easyJet, Ryanair is one of Europe's largest low cost airlines operating around 1,500 flights daily. The airline boasts a fleet of over 300 Boeing 737-800 aircrafts departing from 50 bases to 180+ destinations in nearly 30 countries.
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.
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.
* Adults travelling with an infant aged 8 days to 23 months may carry a baby bag weighing a maximum 5kg on board the Ryanair flight, along with their own cabin baggage.
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.
Tell people what the issue is when delayed and at least in form them that they are expected to check in baggage that you wanted to be carry on luggage!
Value for money, shame about the cramped conditions. My outward journey with Jet2 was a more comfortable journey.
I am happy to check-in luggage,even though my bag is almost carry on size. I feel customers with small carry on cases should not have to pay, or it should be a much smaller amount
I had pre raid a case and had to pay again.
Everything went very smoothly - from checking in to landing at the other end. Polite, helpful cabin staff.
No sandwiches available on flight, just full meals.
Lovely cabin crew very professional will fly with you again thanking you
Everything from booking to checking in and flights was excellent would definitely use this service again
