Ryanair is changing its baggage policies and charges. The changes will come into effect for all new bookings from 1st October 2009 onwards.

From 1 October Ryanair passengers will be able to travel with 2 checked in bags (which can be paid for at the time of booking). Each bag will have a separate 15kg allowance which will allow passengers to travel with up to 30kg of checked in baggage – double the current allowance of 15kg.

The popular low cost airline is also increasing its checked in baggage and excess baggage fees for travel from 1st October as part of its programme to encourage passengers to travel with carry on luggage only.

 All passengers can avoid these optional checked in baggage fees by travelling with carry on baggage only.

Ryanair’s Stephen McNamara said, “Ryanair continues to reduce air fares – saving our passengers over €530m this year alone. In order to persuade passengers to travel with carry on bags only and to defray the cost of some of these fare reductions we are increasing baggage allowances and fees with effect from 1st October. These baggage fees are all avoidable by all passengers who choose to travel with carry on luggage only. Over 70% of Ryanair passengers will be totally unaffected by these changes as they already travel with just one carry on bag, which is free of charge.”
