How much hand luggage are you allowed to take with you when flying with Ryanair? Carry-on luggage should meet the size and weight restrictions set out by the airline. However, you can bring an additional smaller bag on board whose weight is not specified.
On Ryanair flights, hold luggage is not included in the ticket price. But it is possible to buy it on eSky.com. The fee for checked luggage depends on when you want to travel.
Ryanair – hand luggage allowance
Ryanair has announced a new luggage policy which will apply from November 1, 2018 onwards. Passengers are now allowed to take only one small personal bag into the cabin, not exceeding 40 x 20 x 25 cm in size. Only priority boarding customers are permitted a larger cabin bag (not exceeding 55 x 40 x 20 cm in size and 10 kg in weight), so those who have paid for priority boarding can take two bags into the cabin – one regular cabin bag and one small personal bag.
|free luggage allowance||maximum size||maximum weight||fee|
|NO – hand luggage||55 x 40 x 20 cm||10 kg||from £6*|
|YES – small bag**||40 x 20 x 25 cm||without limits||-|
* This option is available only for passengers who purchased priority boarding.
** The small bag must fit under the seat in front – otherwise, additional charge may apply. Also, non-priority boarding customers who bring a second bag to the gate will be charged extra.
