Recently, Indian airlines IndiGo, SpiceJet and GoAir revised their excess baggage fares for domestic flights. The three low-cost carriers are now charging passengers with ₹400 per kg for each kilo beyond 15 Kgs of free baggage allowance (for those who have not pre-booked excess baggage).
As per the new rule, IndiGo and GoAir’s prepaid excess baggage charges are- ₹1,900 for the excess baggage of 5 Kgs, ₹3,800 for 10 Kgs, ₹5,700 for 15 Kgs and ₹11,400 for extra 30 Kgs. However, SpiceJet’s prepaid excess baggage slab is ₹1,600 for 5 Kgs, ₹3,200 for 10 Kgs, ₹4,800 for 15 Kgs, ₹6,400 for 20 kgs and ₹9,600 for 30 Kgs.
This move comes few days after Jet Airways introduced changes in its checkin baggage concept.
