Ryanair passengers warned to avoid extra charge
Passengers flying with Ryanair this weekend are warned that, due to regular maintenance, the Ryanair website will be closed on Friday and Saturday.
As a result, travellers risk incurring an extra charge at the airport if they do not print out their boarding passes in good time before the flight.
It is part of Ryanair's terms that, if you book with the budget airline, you will print out your boarding pass at home - between 15 days and four hours before your flight. Failure to do so will result in a £60 extra charge at the airport.
Many passengers typically tend to print out their boarding passes the night before a flight.
However, due to the website closure, anyone travelling this weekend - including travellers heading to Germany for the Champions League final - could find themselves unable to print their tickets from home.
Ryanair are not suspending the extra boarding pass charge whilst their website is down.
Stephen McNamara, Ryanair’s Head of Communications, commented: “As Manage my Booking will be unavailable during this 24 hour website closure, we have advised all passengers due to travel over the coming weekend (Sat 19 & Sun 20 May) to check-in on Ryanair.com before 16.00hrs (GMT) Fri 18 May."
The website will be down from 10pm on Friday 18th until midnight Saturday 19th.
Ryanair is celebrating the upgrade with the release of 1 million seats for £10.99, available during travel on Mon, Tue & Wed in June. The seats must be booked before the website upgrade begins.
