Ryanair will charge you for hand luggage starting from tomorrow - here's what you need to know

From tomorrow onwards, Ryanair's new baggage policy comes into effect.

If you're flying from Thursday, November 1, you will no longer be able to take hand luggage onto the plane for free.

Ryanair's new restrictions on baggage mean that passengers are only allowed one small bag (a handbag or a laptop bag) onboard the plane free of charge.

All other bags will now come with a charge, with the usual 10kg hang luggage bag now costing €8 and can only be checked-in.

Priority customers, however, will be allowed to take two bags onboard for a fee of €6. Ryanair also noted that no bags will be checked in at the gate for free from now on.

The Irish airline has stated that these changes are to help “eliminate gate bags and cut boarding gate/flight delays”.

From tomorrow on, if a passenger arrives at the gate with two bags or a bigger bag than stated, they will be required to pay €25 to check it in.

Passengers travelling with children under two-years-old are allowed to bring one 5kg bag onboard the plane for free with necessary supplies for the infant.

These changes come into effect from the first flights tomorrow morning.
