INDIGO HIKES UP EXCESS BAGGAGE FEES : DEETS BELOW

Budget airline service IndiGo has hiked up its baggage charges on their domestic services. As per information provided on company's official website charges for 5, 10, 17 and 30 Kg excess baggage on prepaid basis has been hiked to Rs 1900, Rs 3800, Rs 5700 and Rs 11400 respectively. According to new rules carrying more than 15 kgs in a domestic flight can charge you up to 33% with effect from June 22. Domestic passengers who have not paid for their excess baggage now have to pay 400 rs after every kg beyond 15 kg limit. Earlier the airlines were charging rs 300 for excess baggage beyond given limit. Earlier Indigo Increased their baggage limit charges in August for 5, 10, 15 and 30 Kg prepaid baggage (beyond the free 15Kg baggage limit). Following this charges for domestic passengers were fixed with following Rs 1425, Rs 2850, Rs 4,275 and Rs 8550 respectively. Those who haven't booked pre baggage were required to pay 300 for every single kg beyond the 15 kg limit. During to a DGCA order Airlines were charging 500 after 5 kg baggage beyond the 15 kg limit but after airline companies challenged the order in court, they were allowed to charge customers beyond 15 kg limit. For now, no other airline company has announced such rules for baggage allowance in domestic travels but it is expected to be followed by them. Indigo also introduced the fuel surcharge for their travels from may 30 this year. Reason for this was rise in aircraft fuel price. The fuel surcharge is fixed at Rs 200 for routes shorter than 1000 Km and Rs 400 for routes 1000 Km or longer. This year jet fuel prices have hiked up by 40%.
