Ryanair and Wizz Air introduce under-seat hand luggage only fares

As of 1st of November 2018, both Ryanair and Wizz Air now only allow under-seat bags as hand luggage with their basic fairs. This means you will need to upgrade if you want to use a bag that can fit in the overhead lockers.

Our Classic 28L and Military 28L are the perfect bag makes the perfect carry on, here are our key facts:

  1. Both Ryanair and Wizz Air have introduced new baggage policies

    As announced by RyanAir1 and WizzAir2 , from 1st of November 2018 all non-priority customers will only be allowed one free small carry-on bag, or will need to pay for extra baggage allowance.

  2. All CabinZero 28L bags are perfect for under‑seat carry‑on hand luggage

    WizzAir announced that “passengers will be entitled to bring one free carry-on bag up to a size of 40x30x20cm onboard” while Ryanair announced they’ve “almost doubled the size of their small bag sizer from 35x20x20cm to 42x20x30cm to allow carry-on bags that are considerably (25%) larger than our permitted small bag dimensions3.

  3. Avoid overpacking to avoid additional fees

    CabinZero bags are made of soft and fexible material. To avoid over-packing it is recommended to use the side compression straps.

    Ryanair state ”that If non-priority customers’ one free small bag doesn’t in the new sizer. They will pay a gate bag fee of €25 and their bag will be tagged and placed in the hold.”4.

  4. Upgrading to Priority boarding releases the full potential of hassle-free travel with two CabinZero carry-on bags.

    Passengers can upgrade to priority boarding to allow 1 small piece of under-seat luggage (CabinZero 28L bags) and one large piece of overhead luggage (CabinZero 44L bags).
