Ryan Air Baggage Allowances & Fees 2020

Only priority boarding passengers are be permitted to take one small bag (40cm x 20cm x 25cm), plus a larger cabin bag (55 x 40 x 20cm) with a maximum weight allowance of 10kg into the cabin free of charge.

Non-priority customers can only bring one small bag (40cm x 20cm x 25cm), that must fit into the sizer. If non-priority customers want to bring a second bigger bag, they can purchase a lower cost 10kg check-in bag at the time of booking online. It must be checked-in at the airport bag drop desk, prior to reaching airport security.

If you are a non-priority customer and have not already added a 10kg bag to your booking, but would like to, you can purchase one at the airport bag drop desk for an extra fee.

Duty-free bags are permitted in the cabin along with your cabin baggage.

Please note: there is currently conflicting information regarding being able to take Trunki hand luggage on as cabin baggage. It is best to contact Ryanair directly regarding this.
