Ryanair increases check-in allowance

Ryanair will allow passengers to check-in two bags instead of one

Cheap flights carrier Ryanair will allow passengers to check-in two bags instead of one from October 1st.

The airline has been able to implement the change after its fares fell by an average of 20 percent this year from 40 euros to 30.

Passengers will now benefit from the option of checking-in an additional bag, with each having a separate 15kg allowance.

This effectively doubles the baggage weight that passengers are currently able to check-in.

The airline will however increase its checked-in baggage and excess baggage fees from October 1st, with passengers only able to avoid these if they travel with hand baggage only.

Ryanair said that, despite allowing passengers to check-in more baggage, it wants to encourage passengers to fly with carry-on luggage only.

Earlier this month, Ryanair opened a base in Porto, its first in Portugal, where it will operate three aircraft.

The carrier’s 33rd European base was opened by Portuguese prime minister Jose Socrates.
