DRIVER'S LICENCE NOT ACCEPTED FROM 1St OCT
Ryanair, the World's favourite airline, is reminding passengers to bring their passport when travelling on all Ryanair flights as from Thursday next (1st Oct 09) Ryanair will no longer accept a driver's licence as a valid form of identification.
From Thursday 1st October Ryanair passengers must be in possession of a valid passport or a government issued National Identity card which has been issued solely for the purpose of identification (i.e. driver's licence, electoral register cards etc are not included).
Passengers, who arrive at an airport without a valid form of identification, as advised and agreed to at the time of their booking, will not be able to travel.
Ryanair's Stephen McNamara said:
"Ryanair passengers must ensure that they have a valid form of identification to travel on Ryanair flights. Ryanair has moved to simplify our identification policy to avoid passenger confusion and from 1st October all Ryanair passengers must hold a valid passport or a valid National Identity Card issued by the government of a European Economic Area (EEA) country.
"Passengers arriving at an airport with a driver's licence or any other forms of non-valid identification will be unable to travel on Ryanair flights"
