Ryanair releases ID reminder

Ryanair has reminded travellers that from October 1, all passengers will be required to bring their passports to be able to fly.

The change to its policy demands that passengers must be in possession of a valid passport or government issued National Identity Card, or face refusal to board the aircraft.

Ryanair's Stephen McNamara commented: "Ryanair passengers must ensure that they have a valid form of identification to travel on Ryanair flights. Ryanair has moved to simplify our identification policy to avoid passenger confusion, and from October 1 all Ryanair passengers must hold a valid passport or a valid National Identity Card issued by the government of a European Economic Area (EEA) country.


"Passengers arriving at an airport with a driver's licence or any other forms of non-valid identification will be unable to travel on Ryanair flights."

Previously, travellers were able to board domestic Ryanair flights using their driving licence as identification.
