Ryanair escalates row over boarding pass fee

Ryanair escalates row over boarding pass feeRyanair has threatened to refuse to allow passengers to on its flights unless they print their boarding pass before they arrive at the airport.The move by the no-frills airline is a major escalation in the dispute over the fees it charges for printing the pass at the airport, which were ruled illegal by a Spanish court earlier this month. Ryanair escalates boarding pass row. Ryanair is appealing the ruling but if it fails to have it overturned, then passengers who turn up at the terminal without a pass will be forced to by another plane ticket before being allowed to board.
Passengers currently face a £40 fee for printing the pass at the airport in Britain. On the continent the levy is 40 euros (£28.78).
Ryanair said that the fee to print boarding passes at the airport would remain in place until the company’s appeal has been heard and currently passengers would not have to buy a new ticket.
Stephen McNamara, the airline’s spokesman, defended the charges.
