Ryanair and Wizz Air’s cabin baggage policy

Summary: To be allowed a 10 kg cabin bag AND a personal item on board, you must purchase Priority Boarding.

Ryanair and Wizz Air’s new cabin baggage policies are very similar. Both airlines have removed the 10 kg cabin bag as a standard item for all passengers. If you want to travel with a cabin bag and a personal item, you should purchase Priority Boarding.

Priority Boarding = personal item + cabin bag + board the plane first.
No Priority Boarding = personal item only.

Personal item
  • Ryanair dimensions: 40 x 20 x 25 cm. 
  • Wizz Air dimensions 40 x 30 x 20 cm, 10 kg.
  • All passengers can bring this into the cabin and it should easily be able to fit under the seat in front of you.
  • If a non-priority customer’s personal item doesn’t fit in the sizer, they will pay a fee of €/£25 at the gate and their bag will be tagged and placed in the cargo hold.
Cabin bag 10 kg
  • Ryanair dimensions: 55 x 40 x 20 cm, 10 kg.
  • Wizz Air dimensions 50 x 40 x 23 cm, 10 kg.
  • To take this into the cabin, you will need to purchase Priority Boarding.
  • Non-Priority passengers will have to pay a €/£25 fee at the gate to bring this on board and it will be put in the cargo hold.
Exceptions
  • Parents with infants can bring an additional 5 kg bag on board. 
  • Special medical equipment can be brought on board free of charge (subject to clearance by Ryanair staff). See our article on special assistance.
