AN additional fee of €2 will be added to every ticket Ryanair sells from Monday, April 4, which it says will help fund costs it faces from the European Union's EU261 legislation which offers passengers compensation.
The legislation ensures that compensation is payable to airline passengers in Europe who face delays or cancellation of flights.
But Ryanair say that they have faced costs of €100m arising from flight cancellations, delays and providing right to care, compensation and legal expenses.
So from Monday an additional €2 fee will be added to tickets, and Ryanair say the regulations should be amended to relieve airlines of the burden of providing care in cases where the cancellations and/or delays are clearly not the responsibility or fault of the airlines.
Current regulations provide passengers with compensation dependent upon the distance involved, and further details can be found on the European Air Passengers Rights website.
