Irish airline Ryanair will charge customers to bring small 10kg suitcases onto its planes from November.
The airline says the move is "revenue neutral" and is not designed to make extra money but to reduce boarding delays leading to late flights.
From November, any bag that customers bring onboard as ‘free’ luggage must fit under the seat in front.
Ryanair’s chief marketing officer Kenny Jacobs said: "We are introducing a new lower cost 10kg checked bag and changing our carry-on bag policy to eliminate boarding/flight delays.
"Priority Boarding customers will continue to enjoy two free carry-on bags. All other (non-priority) customers will be allowed one free (small) carry-on bag and those who wish to check in a second bigger 10kg bag can do from €/£8 at the time of booking."
