To help you avoid any inconveniences whilst travelling this month, we’ve put together a summary of important industry news to be aware of:
The low-cost airline has recently conducted a series of staff strikes over pay and working conditions. This caused up to 190 flights to be cancelled in September, affecting around 30,000 customers. We advise travellers flying with Ryanair to keep up-to-date on any potential changes to their flights in October.
EU passport law
Due to a new policy that came into action on September 10, travellers with less than six months left on their passports may not be allowed to enter certain EU countries. You can no longer add remaining time on your old passport to your new one, so make sure to check before you travel.
Northern Rail strikes
The RMT has announced a total of nine days of planned strikes, three of which are in October. The strikes land on October 6, 13 and 20, and will either cause services to be cancelled or very limited. Travellers have also been advised to plan journeys carefully, as all remaining services will be extremely busy.
Ryanair hand luggage
Ryanair recently announced that cases under 10kg would no longer be allowed in the cabin from November. Passengers who book flights from 1st November will be subject to pay for priority boarding, or for a 10kg bag to be put into the hold.
As ever, the team at Review Travel are here to advise you on the above and much more when it comes to your travel plans.
