Pre Paid Baggage Allowance

Say goodbye to last minute hassles at the airport with our Pre Paid Baggage Allowance Scheme.

Business Rules

Under this scheme a passenger can purchase excess baggage through Air India’s call centre or at any of the Air India booking offices (CTO) and save 20% compared to airport rates. Excess baggage is the additional weight you intend to carry beyond the permitted Free Baggage Allowance.

The scheme covers all Air India’s domestic and international flights.

The scheme has four slabs for routes on whichweight concept is used to charge for excess baggage. Each slab will have a uniform discount rate of 20%. A passenger can call the call centre or go to the Air India booking office and purchase for himself a baggage allowance in return for payment. E.g. one can make a payment of INR 1060 and purchase a baggage allowance with a maximum limit of 5 Kgs for economy class. Now the passenger can travel with an excess baggage going up to a maximum of 5 Kgs without going through the process of making the payment at the airport. Also by purchasing through the call centre or Air India booking office he will be paying 20% less than he would have paid at the airport. Passenger will not get any refund for any unutilized excess baggage. In the example even if he carries 3 Kgs excess baggage, he will not be refunded for the unutilized 2 Kgs.

Routes where piece concept is applicable, 20% discount will be given on both extra piece and excess weight on the free baggage piece i.e. excess weight above 23Kgs and up to 32Kgs.
