Ryanair has issued a warning to passengers planning to travel this November.
The airline’s website and app will be temporarily down for maintenance for 11 hours between 6:00 p.m. on November 8 and 5:00 a.m. on November 9.
It means that passengers will not be able to check in online during this time.
“Customers due to fly during this 11-hour period should check in online by 6pm on Tuesday 8 November.” Ryanair he wrote in an update on his website.
Those who don’t could face paying a fee of €55 (€30 for flights to Spain) to check in in person at the airport.
How far in advance can I check in for my flight?
Usually, the airline encourages customers to check in online. Boarding passes are sent directly to your phone or can be printed.
You must print your boarding passes if you are traveling Turkey, Morocco, Lebanon or Israel as these airports do not accept mobile boarding passes. Kefalonia Airport in Greece also requires paper boarding passes.
Ryanair passengers with a Flexi Plus ticket or those who have purchased a seat can check-in up to 60 days before their journey. If you have not purchased a seat and booked your ticket after January 28, 2021, you can check-in 24 hours before your flight.
The airline is one of the few that charges passengers for checking in at the airport, so people traveling on these dates are advised to do so in advance to avoid paying the €55 fee.
Several passengers were spotted last month when Ryanair also carried out scheduled maintenance on its website and app.
Does Ryanair charge for printing your boarding pass?
It’s worth making sure you’ve printed your boarding pass or downloaded it to your phone. If you arrive at the airport without your boarding pass, Ryanair charges a €20 ‘Boarding Pass Reissue Fee’ to print it for you.
The in-person billing fee was first introduced in 2007, but was increased to €55 earlier this year.
In August, Ryanair boss Michael O’Leary told the BBC it was cheap flights it’s over The rise in the cost of fuel has pushed up prices, meaning previous promotional fares that offered journeys for as little as €0.99 will not return for a “number of years”.
