  <strong>Pack your travel entertainment carefully if you're flying with Ryanair, as the low-cost Irish airline's new cabin <a href="https://www.ryanair.com/gb/en/plan-trip/flying-with-us/baggage-policy">baggage policy officially starts </a>on January 15. </strong>
  From now on, the airline will only allow passengers to bring one small bag on board, unless they pay a surcharge. The one cabin bag allowed must not exceed 35x20x20cm in size and "should easily fit under the seat in front of you."
  If you haven't purchased a priority boarding pass (for €5/£5 each way) or the two cabin bags fee, a second 10kg bag, measuring 55x40x20cm, must be placed in the hold but free of charge. Ryanair has also decreased its checked luggage charge from €/£35 per flight to €/£25, and increased the weight allowance from 15kg to 20kg
  For passengers worried about waiting for their bags at the carousel, Ryanair insists that 90 per cent of hold luggage gets to the terminal building before the passenger <a href="http://www.telegraph.co.uk/travel/news/ryanair-new-baggage-rules/"><em>(The Telegraph)</em>.</a>
  “So far we’ve had lots of flights taking off today and we haven’t had any issues," Kenny Jacobs, Ryanair's chief marketing officer, told <a href="https://www.bbc.co.uk/5live">BBC 5 Live</a> on Monday morning about how the change has worked so far.
  The new policy is designed to improve punctuality and avoid slow boarding, which can cause delays, as reported<a href="http://www.independent.co.uk/travel/news-and-advice/ryanair-bag-policy-latest-passengers-carry-on-luggage-cabin-hold-budget-airline-a8159481.html"> by <em>The Independent</em>.</a> It was initially expected to be issued in November, but<a href="http://www.telegraph.co.uk/travel/news/ryanair-new-baggage-rules/"> according to</a> <em>The Telegraph</em> it was postponed to allow passengers “more time to adjust to the changes.”
  "These bag policy changes will cost Ryanair over €50 million (£46 million) per annum in reduced checked bag fees. However, we believe offering bigger bags at reduced fees will encourage more customers to consider checking in a bag, which will reduce the high volume of customers we have with two carry-on bags at the boarding gates," <a href="https://www.standard.co.uk/lifestyle/london-life/ryanair-is-cutting-hand-luggage-allowance-to-one-bag-a3628041.html">Jacobs told the <em>London Evening Standard</em> in September.</a>
