Ryanair increases bag fees by 50%

Ryanair, the world’s most hated airline, is to increase the fees it charges to check in bags and sporting equipment from 1 October by a staggering 50%!

The airline is to increase the fee for checking in a bag to £15 from £10 now if booked in advance online and to £30 from £20 now if you pay at the airport.

At the same time, the fee for sports equipment will rise by £10 to £40 if booked on the internet and £50 if paid at the airport. The additional charges will make Ryanair less attractive for skiers and snowboarders, who often travel with a suitcase, boot bag and skis or a board.

I Hate Ryanair spokesman Dave Smith said: “Ryanair will no doubt claim that these fees are avoidable by all passengers who choose to travel with carry on luggage only, but around 30% of passengers do take checked-in baggage and will be stung by yet another rip-off charge.”
