In a move that will save money for 92% of its 116 million customers, Ryanair has cut its checked-in bag fees and simplified the number of bag fee options (from 108 to 6), as part of Year 3 of its “Always Getting Better” (AGB) programme.
Customers on flights under 2 hours will have their bag fees cut by 50%, while customers on all other flights under 3 hours will enjoy savings of up to 17%. Customers on flights over 3 hours will see no change to their checked bag fees.
“These bag changes are in addition to our best-in-class cabin bag allowance, offering two free carry-on bags,” remarked Ryanair’s chief marketing officer Kenny Jacobs. “We’ll continue to offer the biggest and best choice of destinations, with the most on-time flights and a fantastic onboard experience, as we grow our fleet, traffic and routes – and all on the lowest fares.”
