Ryanair has extended the removal of its flight change fee to all new September bookings.

Customers who book to travel in Sept are now able to move their flights with zero change fee to travel until 31 December 2020.

Flight change fees normally start at €35 per person per flight, and vary depending on the route and travel dates selected.

The fee waiver is already in place for new July and August bookings, allowing passengers to book their extended summer holidays with peace of mind in case their travel plans change.

Dara Brady, Ryanair’s director of marketing and digital, said: “In order to provide as much flexibility and confidence as possible for our customers this summer, we have extended the waiving of our flight change fee to new Sept bookings.

“As the holiday season will be prolonged this year, customers can now plan a well-deserved break knowing that flights in July, Aug and now Sept can be moved without any flight change fee if their travel plans change”.

The budget airline began flying 40% of its schedule across Europe at the beginning of July. It has come under attack since the outset of the pandemic for being slow to refund customers for cancelled flights.
