Ryanair expects to save GBP50 million p/a for charging check-in fee

Ryanair confirmed it will remove airport check-in from 01-Oct-2009, with all passengers now required to check-in online for GBP5 per sector at least four hours prior to scheduled departure (Daily Mail, 30-Sep-09). Passengers that do not complete online check-in will be charged a GBP40 fee at the airport. CEO, Michael O'Leary, stated the measure would produce GBP50 million per year in cost savings.
