Travellers planning to book a trip with budget airline Ryanair this weekend will have to hold off for a few days after the company announced that its booking system will be off limits from Friday evening until Monday evening.

The company said on its website that its internet and call centre booking system would be down from 10pm on February 22nd to 11pm on February 25th “because of the changeover to a new flight booking system.”

Customers will not be able to make new bookings, flight changes or review existing bookings through the Ryanair website or call centre during this period.

While flights are set to operate as normal while the system is being updated, it will not be possible for customers to check in online from 1am on February 22nd until 11pm on February 25th.

The company said however that it would not charge an airport check-in fee from February 23rd to 27th for passengers who are unable to check in online.
