IATO and IndiGo work out a special extra baggage rate for the domestic sector

Indian Association of Tour Operators (IATO) has entered into a special arrangement with IndiGo, to have special discounted rate on additional baggage carried by foreign tourists on the domestic sector. As per the arrangement, IATO members booking tickets on IndiGo for their overseas customers holding foreign passport will get a special discounted rate on additional baggage above the permitted 15kg.

According Rajiv Mehra, Vice President, IATO, an 8kg additional baggage will invite a fee of INR 1,000 and for 15 kg a flat INR 1,500. In normal cases, IndiGo charges INR 500 for each additional kilogram of baggage over the permitted 15 kg.

IATO members have to inform the airline 72 hours in advance, exluding Sundays and holidays with the details of the travellers to avail such special rates, Mehra said. The carrier will debit the extra baggage rate from the agents account from where the booking has come and raise the invoice.
