Stansted drafts in extra check-in staff as Ryanair's new bag policy comes into force today

London Stansted posted extra staff in check-in areas today as Ryanair's new baggage policy came into force.

The new rules mean passengers who want to take more than a small bag on board must pay extra.

Passengers will only be able to take hand luggage - a small bag of up to 10kg - by paying for priority boarding, which costs €/£6 if purchased at the time of the initial booking, or £8/€8 if added later online or via the Ryanair app.

Non-priority passengers can now take on a small bag, 40% larger than previously allowed at 40x20x25cm, but it must fit under the seat in front. It can't go in the overhead locker.

Passengers who bring a second bag to the gate, or a small bag that is too big, will be charged £25.

The airline claims the changes will reduce flight delays.

A spokesman for Stansted said Ryanair flights took off on time this morning and there was no disruption.
