All Ryanair check-in via web from October
Ryanair will move to 100% web check-in from 1 October 2009. The move requires all passengers, including those travelling with checked baggage, to check-in online.
Ryanair’s web check-in service is open from 15 days to 4 hours before the scheduled departure time of each flight. Web check-in can be accessed via ryanair.com using booking confirmation numbers or flight details to retrieve each reservation.
Having printed their boarding cards at home, passengers without check-in bags can continue to proceed directly through airport security while those with check-in bags can simply present at one of Ryanair’s “drop desks” before proceeding through airport security to the boarding gate. The airline says this will free passengers from wasting hours at airports prior to departure and will dramatically reduce travel times for passengers.
Ryanair will phase in the introduction of its 100% web check-in. Phase 1, from 19 March, will see Ryanair’s web check-in service will be extended to: non EU/EEA citizens; passengers travelling with checked baggage; and (c) reduced mobility customers.
Travellers checking in online and travelling with only carry-on bags will receive the service free of charge, but a web check-in fee of £5/€5 per person/per flight will apply to passengers travelling with checked baggage. Customers who still wish to use airport check-in will be charged an airport check-in fee of £10/€10 per person/per flight at the time of booking.
When Phase 2 begins on 1 May 2009, all new bookings will be required to use web check-in, and the use of traditional airport check-in desks will be phased out over the summer months. The web check-in fee of £5/€5 per person, per flight will apply to all new bookings (except promotional fares) from 1 May 2009. To dissuade passengers from using airport check-in desks, the fee for airport check-in will double to £20/€20 per person/per flight at the time of booking.
Phase 3 will commence on 1 October 2009, when airport check-in desks will no longer be available at any Ryanair airport. All passengers will be required to web check-in and those who have checked in bags will use the airport “bag drop” desks, if required. From this date, children under the age of 16 will no longer be able to travel unaccompanied and passports and national ID cards will be the only accepted forms of photo ID on Ryanair flights.
