Air India reduces free check-in baggage allowance to 15 kg for lowest economy fare segment

New Delhi/IBNS: Air India has reduced its free check-in baggage allowance on domestic flights from 20kg to 15kg for the lowest economy fare segment. 

The Tata Group-owned Air India made the changes as part of the menu-based pricing model fare families introduced by the airline company last August.

The airline has asserted that a one-size-fits-all approach is no longer ideal.

Before the fare families concept, passengers on Air India's domestic flights were allowed to carry 25 kg of check-in baggage for free.

Other domestic carriers such as IndiGo, Vistara and SpiceJet offer 15 kg of check-in baggage without additional charge.

The three fare groups – Comfort, Comfort Plus, and Flex – offer distinct levels of benefits and fare restrictions at various price points, an Air India spokesperson said on Saturday.

The changes will come into effect from May 2.

The free check-in baggage allowance for the 'Comfort' and 'Comfort Plus' categories has been reduced to 15 kg from 20 kg and 25 kg respectively, according to the airline's statement.
