Ryanair has revealed that more customers with a two-person booking are purchasing its new lower cost €8 x 10kg check bags instead of its 20kg bag (€25) for city breaks and winter getaways, where customers can save €9 per booking, by purchasing two 10kg check bags (€8) instead of one 20kg bag (€25).
The new policy has cut check bag fees by offering a cheaper €8 x 10kg check bag (currently €25 x 20kg). This new bag policy eliminates all free 2nd gate bags, (which have been causing flight delays this summer), from 1 Nov next as follows:
– Priority Boarding customers can continue to bring 2 free carry-on bags (1 x 10kg wheelie bag and 1 small bag).
– Non-priority customers can only bring 1 free (small) carry-on bag from 1 Nov.
– If non-priority customers want to bring a 2nd bigger (wheelie) bag they can buy a lower cost 10kg check bag for €8 at time of booking (currently a 20kg bag costs €25). This 10kg wheelie bag must be checked in at the airport bag drop desk.
