BUDGET airline Ryanair have issued a reminder to passengers to bring their passport when travelling on all Ryanair flights as from Thursday October 1.

Ryanair will are longer accepting a driver's licence as a valid form of identification from that date.

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 - driver's licence, electoral register cards 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. The move is to simplify our identification policy to avoid passenger confusion.

"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.
