LESS LUGGAGE ON BOARD
Irish low cost airline Ryanair wants to reduce the number of luggage that passengers can take on board because of the delays. The company has announced that as of November, only those customers who will pay extra for the privileged boarding will be allowed to take two luggage on board.
The company also said that for luggage transported in the cargo area, the weight limit will be increased from 15 to 20 kilograms, while at the same time, the fee for one such luggage will be reduced from 35 to 25 euros.
Currently, Ryanair allows all passengers to take one smaller and one bigger luggage aboard. The high number of passengers carrying two luggage on board, however, according to the company, causes flight delays because of problems with insufficient storage space.
“We hope that limiting non-priority customers to one small on-board luggage will speed up boarding and remove delays,” said Ryanair.
The reported change in luggage policy will cost the company more than 50 million euros a year.
