Irish low-cost carrier Ryanair is to delay its new cabin bag policy. It will now become effective from January 15, 2018 to allow customers more time to adjust to the changes, particularly during the busy Christmas period, the company informed in a press release.

The new policy includes cuts to checked bag fees from €35 to €25, to encourage more customers to check in bags and reduce the volume of carry-on bags. Moreover, the check-in bag allowance has increased from 15 kilograms to 20 kilograms for all bags.

At the same time, only Priority Boarding customers will be allowed to bring two carry-on bags on the aircraft. The remaining customers will only be allowed to take one smaller carry-on bag on board, while their second wheelie bag will be placed in the hold at the boarding gate.

“From January, we will be restricting non-priority customers to one small carry-on bag (their wheelie bag will be placed in the hold, free of charge at the boarding gate) which will speed up the boarding of flights and eliminate flight delays,” Ryanair’s Kenny Jacobs explained in the press release.

The company has already introduced the first phase of its new bag policy, offering customers lower bag fees for a 33-percent increase in their check-in bag allowance.

“This will lead to fewer customers with two carry-on bags at the boarding gates, which is causing flight delays,” Jacobs said.
