About Ryanair

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.

Online check-in

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

* 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.

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.

both flights were late, people who works in the airport start to check tickets and ID/passports very late, we needed to wait after that as well.. It took a lot of time till the crew of the Ryanair prepare everything for flight. I think we started to go one hour later and I missed my bus from London Stansted airport because of these problems.

We did not take the flights there or back. We cancelled our trip ;and it was too complicated to change the dates to save the cost of the tickets. Shame but learnt a lesson with booking charges and real costs. I regret not taking out insurance as I was too unwell to travel and may have been eligible for refund this way.
