Air India increases baggage allowance to 25 kg; 10 kg more than others

airAir India has increased the baggage allowance for domestic economy class passengers to 25 kg, or 10 kg more than what most private airlines in India offer.

Air India said it was the only airline in India to offer so much as baggage allowance on domestic economy class tickets.

“This offer is valid from Aug 12, 2015 to Feb 7, 2016, across all fare levels of Economy Class. Additionally, infants will now get a free baggage allowance of 10 kgs,” it said.

Passengers who have booked before Aug 12, 2015, will also get the benefit of the increased allowance.

However, for passengers travelling on Air India domestic sectors and connecting to Air India international sectors and vice versa, the free baggage allowance of the international sector will be applicable, it added.

Passengers travelling on Alliance Air flights and connecting to Air India flights and vice versa, will also be eligible for this offer.

However, this offer will not be available for passengers travelling exclusively on Alliance Air flights, it said.
