As summer is officially upon us and the kids are enjoying that six week break, that we’ve all wished for at some point, a lot of families are off on their jolly holidays. Our customer service department has seen a high number of customers asking questions about Ryanair hand luggage restrictions, so we’ve pulled together some generic information which will help answer the most frequently asked questions.
A bit about Ryanair’s Hand Luggage Policy
Ryanair has a generous hand luggage policy and allows its passengers to carry two cabin bags, one large bag which should fit in the overhead lockers and a smaller bag which can be stowed away under the seat.
What are the exact bag dimensions allowed by Ryanair?
- Stowaway bags should be 35x20x20cm
- Large bags should be 55x40x20cm
We have a wide range of bags that are within Ryanair’s dimensions, so whether you like matching luggage sets, bright patters or you like more conservative luggage, you can rely on us.
Our favourite – Matching Colours
Other Matching Colours
- Metz or Tallinn or Malmo or Palermo or City grey/orange can be paired with the Arezzo grey/orange
- Metz black/orange & Arezzo black/orange
- Metz spotty & Arezzo spotty
- Capital green/white/red & Arezzo green/white/red
Great set – The Cabin Max Oxford range
Large Bags Only 55x40x20com
Please note that these bags do not all match the exact Ryanair dimension however they are within the restrictions.
Smaller Bags Only 35x20x20cm
Am I guaranteed that I will be able to take my bag on the plane with me?
Ryanair, like a lot of the other budget airlines, will only allow a certain number of bags to be taken in to the cabin, this is because there is only a limited amount of space in the overhead lockers. Ryanair will allow the first 90 bags to be taken in to the cabin, so our advice would be to try to beat the queues.
Do infants have hand luggage allowance?
Infants 8 days old to 23 months old are allocated 5kg which can be carried by an accompanying adult. The Cabin Max Changing bag is perfect to hold all those essential baby items, containing insulated pods and external bottle holders.
Infants who sit on an adults lap will not be entitled to checked in luggage however you are allowed to take 2 items of baby equipment per infant. Items such as a pushchair which you will be able to use up to the steps to the aircraft, car seats, car booster seats and travel cots.
It is important to bear in mind that if your child celebrates their 2nd birthday whilst you are on holiday and before your flight home, you will need to book an adult ticket for that return flight.
