Ryanair to raise luggage prices
Passengers flying with budget airline Ryanair will have to pay more for checked-in luggage in the peak summer period, it has been announced.
The no-frills carrier will raise its per-bag fee from €15 to €20 for all bookings made after midnight Tuesday for travel in July and August.
The €15 fee for checked-in bags will be in operation again from September.
Ryanair's Stephen McNamara said: "We are determined to incentivise passengers to travel light this summer by increasing our checked-in baggage fees for the months of July and August only.
"Over 70pc of all Ryanair passengers will be unaffected by these changes because they travel with no checked-in bags."
