Ryanair is scrapping its check-in desks at Edinburgh Airport
Budget airline Ryanair is set to scrap its check-in desks at Edinburgh Airport.
From Wednesday all new passenger bookings, including infants and checked-in bags, will be done online.
The firm said it was replacing its £10 airport check-in fee with a £5 online charge per person, per flight.
A £40 "boarding card reissue fee" is also being introduced for travellers who fail to bring their pre-printed web check-in boarding card to the airport.
Stephen McNamara, of Ryanair, said: "Passengers travelling without checked in bags have already embraced our online check-in service and the extension of this service to all passengers, including those with hold luggage and those travelling with infants will allow all passengers to forever avoid check-in queues.
"This will also allow Ryanair to lower our airport and handling costs and pass these savings to all passengers in the form of even lower air fares next winter.
"Ryanair's web check-in service allows passenger to check-in from 15 days to four hours before, and print, or re-print, their boarding card up to 40 minutes prior to their scheduled departure time."
