Are you flying with Ryanair soon? We recommend that you read their luggage policies to avoid any surprises at the airport. As a low cost airline, Ryanair has specific rules that should be followed to avoid having to pay additional fees and surchages.


Ryanair’s Cabin Baggage

Ryanair allows one cabing onboard with maximum dimensions of 55 x 40 x 20 cm and a maximum weight of 10 kg. In addition, they now allow to carry on-board one small bag up to 35 x 20 x 20 cm.

If you’re travelling with an infant of up to 23 months old, you can also bring a baby bag of up to 5kg.

IMPORTANT: If your luggage doesn’t meet the following dimensions, you will have to pay additional fees before boarding.

Ryanair also informs passengers that in case the plane has a high number of passengers and limited cabin space, they reserve the right to check-in your hand luggage for free.

Ryanair’s Checked Baggage Allowance

Checked baggage isn’t automatically included in the price of regular Ryanair bookings. If you need to check-in luggage, you can book up to two bags of 15-20kg and pay the associated fees.

➡ Please note that you may share your baggage with the passengers listed in your booking reservations. Just make sure you don’t exceed the permitted baggage allowance or you’ll have to pay extra per additional kilograms.

If you’re travelling with an infant or child, you are entitled to carry a folding stroller or one of the following objects: car seat, child seat or a portable crib.

Items that are prohibited onboard a Ryanair flight

Remember that it is prohibited to carry any of the following articles:

  • Guns or firearms
  • Pointed weapons or sharp objects
  • Flammable and explosive substances
  • Blunt instruments
  • Toxic and chemical substances
  • Fish, game or hunting trophies

Ryanair reserves the right to refuse to carry baggage that include these prohibited items.
