Air India reduces domestic baggage allowance (Up to 10kg)


Air India has issued a trade notice and updated its baggage policies on its website for tickets issued starting May 2, 2024. The revised baggage allowances align with market standards and regulations, reflecting adjustments in various fare classes:

• Economy Comfort (S, T, U, L fare classes): 15 kg baggage allowance (previously 20kg)
• Economy Comfort Plus (G, W, V, Q, K fare classes): 15 kg baggage allowance (previously 25kg)
• Economy Flex (H, M, B, Y fare classes): 25 kg baggage allowance (unchanged)
• Business Comfort Plus (Z, J fare class): 25 kg baggage allowance (previously 35kg)
• Business Flex (D, C fare classes): 35 kg baggage allowance (previously 40kg)
The airline communicated these changes through a trade announcement, emphasising that older tickets issued before May 2, 2024, will remain valid under the previous terms. Notably, Air India allows for multiple bags within the baggage allowance, distinguishing itself from competitors like IndiGo, which permits only one bag up to 15kg.

In summary, Air India has revised its baggage allowances for most fare classes, reducing allowances by 5-10 kgs for economy and business class tickets issued on or after May 2, 2024.
