60 DAY CHECK-IN INTRODUCED FOR PURCHASED SEATS
01 Jun 2017

Ryanair, Europe’s No.1 airline, today (1 June) announced that customers who purchase an allocated seat for their flight can now check-in up to 60 days in advance, the latest improvement delivered under Year 4 of its “Always Getting Better” programme.

All Ryanair customers may select and purchase their preferred seat online, both on the Ryanair.com website and mobile app, from the time of booking right up to 2 hours before their scheduled departure, and in turn can check-in online and on the app, from between 60 days and 2 hours before their flight.

Ryanair’s new 60 day check-in window follows other recent AGB 4 initiatives including:

Connecting flights at Rome Fiumicino with more airports to follow
Air Europa long haul flights on sale on the Ryanair.com website with 20 routes to 16 countries
A new partnership with the Erasmus Student Network offering student discounts
An enhanced Ryanair Rooms website offering an even wider choice of accommodation options
The roll out of Ryanair Holidays to Italy and Spain
Customers who don’t wish to purchase an allocated seat can check-in between 4 days and 2 hours before their flight and will be randomly allocated a seat free of charge.


Ryanair’s Kenny Jacobs said:

“We are pleased to introduce 60 day check-in for customers who purchase an allocated seat, the latest customer initiative as part of our “AGB” programme, doubling the check-in window and providing more choice to consumers.

While we continue to innovate, the one thing that won’t change is our low fares, and our customers will still enjoy the biggest and best choice of destinations, with the most on-time flights and a fantastic onboard experience, as we continue to grow our fleet, traffic and routes.”

Here's the clue about seating discussions that have been going on:

From http://www.independent.ie/life/travel/t ... 80869.html
I read:

'Pre-booked seats cost €2 for rows 6-15 and 18-33, €7 for rows 2 (A,B,C) to 5, and €11 for extra legroom rows 1, 2 (D,E,F) and 16-17.
Customers who do not wish to reserve seats may check in for free between four days and two hours before departure, and will be randomly assigned seats.

Passengers who do not purchase seats are not guaranteed seats together.

Children under 12 get free reserved seats, but at least one adult travelling with them needs to purchase an allocated seat in rows 18-30, the airline says.

Adults purchasing such seats are charged €4, double the standard rate.
Early check-in for passengers purchasing seats had previously been 30 days.'

I think it's because these islands are considered overseas territories. Because of this they have different rules, however I am not sure why or what.
