Ryanair to launch 100% online check-in service

Cheap flights carrier Ryanair has announced that it will introduce a 100 percent web check-in service.

Cheap flights carrier Ryanair has announced that it will introduce a 100 percent web check-in service from October 1st this year.

The decision will enable passengers to check-in online, something that will save time by avoiding queues and delays at airport check-in desks.

Web check-in, which can be accessed via the airline’s website, ryanair.com, opens between 15 days and four hours before a flight departs.

Ryanair’s Stephen McNamara said that the carrier’s check-in service is currently used by up to three-quarters of its passengers.

"We are confident that all passengers will embrace this improved service which will allow them to forever avoid check-in queues while at the same time it will enable Ryanair to lower our airport and handling costs and pass on these savings to all passengers in the form of even lower air fares next winter," he said.

Passengers who have checked in online leave their checked-in baggage at one of Ryanair’s ‘drop desks’ before moving through airport security.

This week the airline urged the government to ditch the Civil Aviation Authority, which it claims has "ignored passengers and airport users".
