Go Indigo is the foremost LCC operator of India which provides domestic and international flights. The people, who are looking to fly on this airline, would invariably require the information on the baggage allowance permitted by the airline. This information is useful for the flyers to plan their luggage in better way, saving the last minute hassles. Indigo permits luggage to be carried as checked-in baggage or hand baggage. Here are some of the rules related to these baggage types allowed by the airlines:
For the domestic flights, the Indigo airlines allow the passengers to carry a check-in baggage of 20 kg per adult and child above the age of two years. For the international flights to and from Dubai and Muscat, the airline allows free baggage of 30 kgs per adult and child. Further, there is a restriction on the dimensions of the baggage. It does not allow the sum of the baggage dimensions (L+B+W) to exceed 158 cm per baggage. For carrying excess baggage, the airline charges an extra sum of Rs 200 per kg on each of the domestic sector flown (including Kathmandu as well). However, for the international flights, the charges vary as per the station.
In case you need to carry some large equipment as checked-in baggage in domestic flights, there is a separate levy of fee of Rs 1000 per piece of equipment per sector and this is charged over and above any excess baggage charge which might be applicable. For the international flights this sum is Rs 2000 for ex-India flights and prices for other destinations are as in the currency of the station.
The hand baggage can be kept at three places in the Indigo airplane. It can be kept in the overhead bin, under the seat and in the Baggage Compartment. Only one handbag per passenger is allowed to be carried whose weight shall not be in excess of 7 kgs and the whose dimensions shall be not exceeding 55cm length+35cm width+25cm height. However, the ladies can additionally carry one handbag. Further, you are also allowed to carry one laptop but without the baggage.
If there is an infant accompanying you then an additional hand baggage with the same set of limitations is allowed. You are also allowed to carry the liquids on-board provided each liquid pack is maximum 100 ml of volume. However, you can have a number of these packed full to a transparent 1 liter re-sealable plastic pack.
The same rules of hand baggage allowance apply to the cheap international flights of Indigo as well.
