Ryanair is to trial a reserved seating service on its Dublin–Malaga and Dublin–London Gatwick routes from 16 May, with the pre-booked service costing £10 (each way) including priority boarding.
The option will allow passengers to reserve seats in the front two rows for a prompt exit on arrival, or in the overwing exit rows which provide greater legroom (though the latter rows cannot be reserved for passengers either aged under 16 or with reduced mobility ).
Ryanair will continue to offer its Priority Boarding service for £4, with priority and reserved seating passengers requested to board the aircraft first.
Ryanair’s Stephen McNamara noted, “If this new service proves popular with passengers then we will roll it out selectively on other Ryanair routes in the coming months.”
