Airline Hand Luggage Changes

In a huge change to the way hand luggage is handled both Ryanair and Easyjet have announced new rules and initiatives.

The Ryanair change comes as the airline tries to reduce its delays at airports that are caused by people simply carrying on too much luggage than the overhead lockers allow.

Up until now you have been allowed two pieces of hand luggage with Ryanair. A small suitcase / carry on bag weighing 10kg no bigger than 55cm x 40cm x 20cm and a second item of 5kg no bigger than 35cm x 20cm x 20cm. Read more

Plans to pedestrianise San Antonio

The council yesterday met with traders and residents to put forward plans to pedestrianise the Old Town of San Antonio, Ibiza.

The plan is to pedestrianise the streets adjacent to the Plaza de la Iglesia and the West End, as well as to restrict traffic in other arteries of the centre during the summer months.

The closure will also include the Old Town, between Ramón and Cajal streets and Calle del Mar. The idea was trialled last year by the council, when between June and October, the streets of the Old Town surrounding the church, as well as others in the West End, were closed to traffic from 12 noon.
