Ryanair’s fine for hand luggage exceeds 100 million euros

The fine from the General Secretariat of Consumer Affairs to Ryanair for the surcharge for hand luggage and other irregularities exceeds 100 million euros, reveals Facua. The sanction on the Irish low cost imposed by the Spanish Government multiplies by 17 the highest amount that had been applied in history to a single company by a consumer protection authority (Spain’s historic fine on Ryanair, Easyjet, Vueling and Volotea).

The other airlines fined by the ministry are Vueling, Easyjet and Volotea. In total, the penalty imposed on the four airlines amounts to just over 150 million euros, an amount of which two thirds corresponds to Ryanair.

Facua recalls that since 2018 he had been reporting to different organizations “the illegal charging of the surcharge for traveling with hand luggage, when Ryanair implemented this practice, which was later joined by other companies.”

The organization has launched a platform for those affected by the extra charge for traveling with hand luggage and other irregularities in the airline sector, such as surcharges for printing the boarding pass at the airport or sitting next to a dependent person.
