Ryanair baggage


Ryanair allows each passenger to carry one small hand luggage as standard. Limits and sizes of additional baggage depend on the selected fare or services purchased during the booking process.

Hand luggage

Each passenger is entitled to carry 1 piece of hand luggage, which must fit under the seat in front of you. In aviation, this is practically one of the smallest dimensions, namely:

  • 40 x 25 x 20 cm.

The dimensions are strict and there is often over-measuring at departure gates. If the dimensions below are not enough for you, we recommend that you add a larger carry-on bag or checked baggage.

Larger hand luggage

In addition to your small hand luggage, you can bring a larger hand luggage if you have purchased tickets at a higher fare (Regular, Plus, Flexi Plus) or selected the Priority Boarding and 2 Hand Luggage add-on service when booking your flight. The second baggage has the following limits:

  • 55 x 40 x 20 cm and 10 kg.

The cost of the additional service is approximately 20 eur per flight and passenger when purchasing the ticket. If you also want a specific seat, it is more convenient to purchase the Regular fare.

Checked baggage

Checked baggage can be purchased at the time of booking. Ryanair offers 2 options for purchase depending on weight and maximum number of pieces per person. You can purchase:

  • 10 kg (1 piece)
  • 20 kg (up to 3 pieces)

The price per bag is from 15 eur to 30 eur depending on the route. Dimensions are standard and the sum of all three sides (height x length x depth) should be less than 158 cm.

Strollers for children

If you are travelling with children, then regardless of the fare purchased, each child is entitled to free carriage of 2 of the items listed below:

  • Stroller (folding or non-folding)
  • travel cot
  • car seat
  • booster seat
  • back carrier

At the airport, go to the check-in desk to receive a label for your pushchair and then hand it in at the departure gate.

In addition, a child under 2 years old is entitled to a small hand luggage bag weighing 5 kg and measuring 45 x 35 x 20 cm.

Sports items and animals

The carriage of animals on board Ryanair aircraft is not permitted. The only exception is assistance dogs for the blind.

Sports equipment such as skis, bicycles, golf clubs or musical instruments can also be carried. For the current fees, please visit ryanair.com/fees.
