Ryanair urges passengers to travel lighter during peak travel times

Ryanair, the world’s favourite airline, 9th December announced that it will continue to encourage passengers to travel lighter, particularly during peak travel periods (June, July, Aug, Sept and Christmas 2012), by increasing its peak period checked-in baggage fees by €5/£5 (from €20 to €25) per bag for all online bookings made from 15th Dec next. To encourage online payment of baggage fees, Ryanair will also increase its checked in bag fees paid at call centres and airports by at least €25/£25 (from €35 to €60) per bag. Low season (Oct – May) online checked-in bag fees will remain unchanged at €15/£15 per bag.

Ryanair will continue to encourage all passengers to avoid its baggage fees by not checking in any bags and instead travelling with Ryanair’s free of charge 10kg carry-on bag allowance.

Ryanair will also increase its ‘boarding card reissue penalty’ from €40/£40 to €60/£60, from 15th Jan 2012, to try to persuade the less than 10 passengers per day who refuse/fail to bring their boarding card (despite email reminders) to their departure airport as 99.9% of Ryanair passengers already do.

Ryanair’s Stephen McNamara said:

“Ryanair continues to incentivise passengers to travel light especially during peak periods by raising our online checked-in baggage fees. As always, baggage fees are avoidable, but for those who chose to check-in a bag during peak travel periods the new fees will apply for bookings made after 15th December next for travel in June, July, August and September 2012. Over 70% of Ryanair passengers will be unaffected by these changes as they already travel with no checked-in bags and instead use Ryanair’s free of charge 10kg carry on allowance.

Also, in a move to persuade the less than 10 passengers per day who fail to print or bring their boarding cards to their departure airport, to do so, we will increase our boarding card re-issue penalty to €60/£60 from 15th January.”
