Ryanair add priority boarding charge to online check-in  
European Airlines  
   

Ryanair, Europe's largest low-cost carrier, has made changes to its optional priority boarding service that offers travellers the opportunity to be the first to board their flights.

At present, passengers who check-in at the airport pay £4/€5 to avail this service, while those checking in online are able to take advantage of this service without paying any charges: the carrier is offering it free of cost in order to encourage passengers to check-in online. Truly, a great news for passengers who would like to check-in at the airport, as they will not have to pay any extra cost for this-Ryanair has truly provided a wonderful opportunity for them.

But, from the 3rd of June, with Ryanair's new online check-in/priority boarding policy, all passengers, both airport check-in passengers and online check-in passengers, will have to pay £4/ €5 if they want to avail priority boarding service.

Also, on the same date, the budget carrier is introducing an online name change facility, allowing its customers to make changes in the name up to 24 hours before departure. Earlier, this facility was only available through the carrier's call centre.

Lorna Farren, a spokeswoman for Ryanair, said, "Because of the success of our web check-in facility (which allows passengers to avoid airport queues) many flights are now selling out all of our allocation of 80 (40%) of priority boarding seats.

These new charges will make the sale of priority boarding fairer for all passengers".
