Hi, thanks for providing good information. If I plan to take a 49 inch TV from Mumbai to Delhi by Air India or any other domestic carrier, then does the carrying policy of 158 cm i.e 62 inch is on size of TV or overall package of TV i.e including box. I believe if 49 inch TV is kept in box, the size may increase. Does it mean that the size of longest side of box should not increase above 158 cm or they only look size of TV which is 49 inch? Further, does Air India charges additional charges if 49 inch TV is carried apart from excess baggage charges as indigo does i.e. Rs 1000? Thanks

Admin Reply :

158 cm is sum of dimensions of the check in baggage. If it is within this size limit, there is no extra charge.

Travelling air india with 2 year old with seat purchased. How can I take my buggy on board as will need it at Mumbai as it's london - Ahmedabad via Mumbai so we have a stop in Mumbai and surely I will need my stroller at Mumbai airport as little one will be only 27 months. Walking uesbut still would need stroller as he would get tired Thanks

Admin Reply :

This is allowed but it depends on space. Further, your kid is more than 2 years, so airline might have reservation allowing buggy  in cabin. We would suggest that you contact the local airline office in this respect. Otherwise, carrying it in checkin is always fine.

I'm travelling to Rajkot (from Birmingham U K), my check in baggage is 23kg *2. Will I need to claim it back when I get to Delhi (change over) or will they transfer it automatically onto my next leg of journey to Rajkot ? I've booked the lot with Air India ( BHX to RAJ )

Admin Reply :

Since the immigration would need to be completed at First entry point in the country (as Rajkot is not an international airport), you would be required to check it in again.

Hi Admin, I will be travelling from Frankfurt to Visakhapatnam and I have a 46 kgs check-in baggage allownace. Can i carry two pieces of baggage and a 55 inch led Tv included in the allowed baggage? Generally, we are supposed to check-in again at delhi for the connecting flight to Visakhapatnam, now in this case do I need to do as usual or is it possible to collect the Luggage at Visakhapatnam because of TV. Please give your feedback . Thanks

No, through check in would not be provided and you will have to check in again after completing the immigration formalities in Delhi. 2 bags of 23 kg each are allowed by both the carriers. However, there is difference in carry on baggage allowances. Air Canada allows 10 kg cabin allowance and Air India allows 8 kg cabin allowance.

Admin Reply :

We have spoken to Air India regarding carriage of TVs on international flights. Their response is that for international routes, they will check whether overall package weight is less than permitted allowance and size is less than 158 cm or not. They will not go by the TV screen size which is normally the case for domestic flights.

Economy class travel within India on Air India entitles you to have 25 kg free check in baggage allowance. So, both of you can take a total of 50 kg check in baggage. This can be taken in check in bags of less than 32 kg weight. 

This is not the allowance for those Alliance Air flights which are exclusively flown by Alliance Air.

Since the dimension is more than 158 cm, you will be charged for it. Air India has confusing policies w.r.t carriage of LED/LCD TVs on domestic and international flights. To be on safe side, it is bette to keep check in luggage within the permitted allowance.

I am planning to carry a 48" TV with me from US to india on AIr india flight 144 ( EWR - BOM) . Can you let me know the extra cost and also the precaution to be taken ? Also can you inform me the custom charges on this ?

Admin Reply :

It has to be a part of your check in baggage and allowance. Size shall be less than 158 cm sum of dimensions. If it is within permitted allowance limits, no extra charge to be paid. We are not an authority on Customs, hence can not answer for it.

The total sum of dimensions shall be less than 158 cm for the TV packing. If this is so, and the TV is within permitted allowance of check in baggage by weight, then it can be carried free.

Hello, I will be travelling from London to Seoul (ICN) via India and I have a question concerning checked baggage allowance. I read on my e-ticket that the maximum amount I am allowed is 30kgs. In this case, is it irrespective of the number of pieces I carry (as long as total weight doesn't exceed 30kgs and each piece doesn't exceed 23kgs)? So would I be allowed to carry one 23kg baggage and another one that weighs 7kg without any additional charge? I hope my questions make sense. Thank you.

Admin Reply :

Yes, you would be allowed to carry it in more than 1 check in bag provided total weight and individual size limits are not breached.
