    The low-cost airline Ryanair will soon not be allowing hand luggage of above 10 kg in the cabin. From November 1st, passengers will have to pay to check in this type of luggage, from then on intended to be placed in the hold.

    Up to now through to that date, passengers on Ryanair flights can still carry bags and luggage not exceeding 10 kg with them. Soon only rucksacks, handbags and standard format laptop bags will be able to accompany passengers in the cabin.

    Passengers with a priority boarding pass will be able to take hand baggage on board. The Irish company will impose a tariff of €6 to €10 for checking in suitcases and rucksacks.

    Ryanair had already adapted its luggage policy in January. However the current rules, which enable passengers to check in their suitcase at the boarding gate with a view to its being placed in the hold, continue to cause delays.
