About Ryanair

Ryanair is a well-known low-cost airline that has its headquarters in Dublin, Ireland. Due to its low air fares, from 2013 Ryanair became known as the most popular  and the busiest international airlines by passenger numbers. Its main airports are its home town in Dublin as well as London Stanstead. Ryanair has over 350 running Boeing 737-800 aircraft and also had one 737-700 that is mainly used for pilot training. Ryanair serves just 32 countries which span over Europe, the Middle East and Morocco. Ryanair was founded by Irish businessman Tony Ryan as well as  Irish travel agent owner Liam Lonergan. When it was first founded, Ryanair had just one flight travelling between Waterford in Ireland to London Gatwick airport but since then they have expanded to one of Europe’s largest carriers employing 9,500 staff. Their website, that was launched in 2000, like many other flight providers was a game changer as it meant they could now provide flights to customers at their cheapest ever rate, avoiding any additional travel agent costs. Ryanair’s latest venture is a 737-700 Boeing available for group hire in the form of a private jet.

Ryanair Flights

You can find cheap Ryanair flights either online or by calling the contact number which will fly to over 32 countries. The majority of flights travel to places within Europe but there are two Ryanair destinations that are outside of the EU, these being Morocco and Israel. The Ryanair website is extremely easy to navigate, if you know your destination, simply enter it into the search bar, along with any specific dates and a list of flight date and times will appear, including prices for both one way and return. If you are unsure of where you would like to travel, their website always displays great offers and discounts on trips to several different places, whether it be a week long family holiday or a romantic city break for two. The website also has a ‘low fares to Ireland’ category where regular, low-cost, daily flights run from specific airports in the UK to specific airports in Ireland. Not only do Ryanair offer flights, you can also book your hotel and car hire for an extremely good price, making the perfect package holiday.  If you need to check when a flight is due to depart or land, you can do this by using the Ryanair ‘timetables’ on their website. Ryanair also offers live flight information for anyone who needs it. If you have not got the means to use the flight tracker or live flight info please call the contact number where you can find out this information. After booking a flight with Ryanair you can manage your booking via their website by logging in and seeing what flights you have booked and when. You can also use this system to pay any outstanding balances or cancel/ change the name on your flight. It is worth booking your Ryanair flights online because you will be charged a £20 call centre or travel agent fee if you book your flight using these methods.

Ryanair check in

To check in with Ryanair online, you will need your reservation number (flight number) to hand as well as the email address of the lead passenger ( the person that booked the flights). Once you have logged in, there will be a simple option to ‘check in’ which will then produce the boarding passes of everyone in your party, you must print these out as these are your ticket for getting on the plane. Checking in online is notorious for saving time when getting to the airport, but please bare in mind that if you have luggage for the hold, you will still need to check your bags in at the bag-drop desk upon airport arrival. Ryanair online check-in opens 30 days before a flight’s departure and closes four hours before your scheduled flight. If you have got two flights booked with Ryanair that is within 15 days of each other, you can check in for both of these flights at the same time. If you have not booked any seats with Ryanair, your check-in will open at 7 days before the flight’s departure and shut 4 hours before. Ryanair does have online check-in fees and these stand at seven euros for tickets bought online and fourteen euros for tickets that are purchased at the airport. Please note that once you have checked in for a flight online there can be no further changes made to the name or date/time of the flight. It is advised that if you are travelling with Ryanair that you do check in online and bring your boarding pass to the airport as failure to do so will face a charge of seventy euros to have their boarding pass reissued, as it is Ryanair’s policy that all passengers check in online. If you are arriving with just cabin baggage you need to arrive at least 30 minutes before your flight is due to depart as boarding closes 20 minutes before the flight’s departure and anyone arriving late to board will not be accepted onto the flight and are not eligible for a refund. If you need to check in baggage into the hold, your bag drop desk will open two hours before the flight is due to leave. If you are due to fly with Ryanair and are concerned about your online check in, someone at the Ryanair contact number will be more than happy to help.

Ryanair Allocated Seating

You are able to reserve certain seats on any flight online with Ryanair for a fee. Reserving seats online when you place your booking costs ten euros and to reserve a seat when you arrive at the airport is fifteen euros. Reserving a seat is not compulsory for Ryanair passengers but is advisable if you are travelling in a large group of people so that seats can be reserved together. Reserving a seat when travelling with young children is also extremely recommended as it is not permitted for children to sit alone on board an aircraft. Reserving a seat is simple and you will have the option to do so when booking your flight.

Ryanair flight cancellation

Ryanair flights are changeable but unfortunately once booked cannot be cancelled. If our outbound flight was not used, your return flight is still valid and Ryanair does not need to be notified if you cannot use your ticket. If you cannot use your flight ticket but would like to give it to someone else, or would like to travel on a different date or at a different time you can make changes to your booking up to 4 hours before your flight. Because Ryanair does not need to know if you cannot board a flight, there is no need to go about cancelling your booking, however, you may be entitled to a refund of the tax you paid on the flight charge, and can appeal for this back. You need to apply in writing within one month of the date of your travel for this money back. If you are having any problems with this, please call the Ryanair contact number for guidance.

Ryanair name/date changes

Like most airlines, Ryanair offers a 24 hour grace period in which passengers are entitled to correct any minor errors on their booking such as spelling mistakes, or an incorrect route or date. After this, any changes to a booked flight, whether it be the name, date or time can be altered at a fee. To do this, simply visit the Ryanair website and select to ‘manage bookings’ and follow the simple steps for booking alterations. To change the name of a booking online, the fee will be £110 and if you wish to do it at the airport you will be asked to pay £160. Your flight change fee will depend on the season. If you are due to travel in high season the change will cost you £60 and £50 in the low season.

Ryanair baggage allowance

If you would like to check-in luggage for the hold you must select to do so when booking your flight. If you have booked and would like to add a bag to your booking, you can do so at any time before the date of departure. You must then take your bag to the bag drop desk at the airport, along with your boarding passes. With most Ryanair bookings, you are entitled to 10kg of cabin baggage as well as another smaller hand luggage. If you would like hold luggage you can purchase a checked baggage allowance which allows for either fifteen or twenty kilos of luggage. If you exceed this allowance upon arrival to the airport or want to add any additional luggage, you will be charged at £10 per kilo.
