BUSINESS WORLD - Ryanair to raise its baggage chargesBaggage charges for checked-in luggage will rise from October as the no-frills airline seeks to encourage people to take only carry-on bags and to raise revenue after cutting fares.
Booking one bag will cost E15 if done at time of booking over the Internet and will cost E30 to check in at the airport.
A second checked-in bag will cost E35 for the two or E70 at the airport.
Both pieces of checked in luggage will each carry a 15kg allowance.
Ryanair do untold damage to their arguments about increased passenger charges and departure taxes when they do this. Their campaign against the 10 departure tax just smacks of hypocrisy when they come out with this. Luckily I have never ever paid the baggage charge on a flight as I have always travelled with hand luggage since the baggage charges came in.
