Dear Admin, You have given information is wrong.Air infia will not carry more than 42 inch of LED tv, it is confirmed by air india callcenter executive abd Live chate exicutive too. Thank you Fazil

Admin Reply :

We gave you information based on our interaction with the Air India representatives as well. 42 inches TV limit is for domestic flights within India. For international flights, this limit is relaxed. 

Anyways, we would not want you to be trouble at airport. Therefore, please take 42 inches TV only and do ask them at airport about the max TV screen size limit allowed. This will also confirm whether the AI chat representative was well aware or not about the policy, or has there been a change in policy.

Hi, I'm planning to fly in AirIndia from Dubai to Chennai and I find that the Airlines are allowing TVs upto 42inches, but nowadays the TVs come in 43inches. Just wanted to clarify that whether I'll be able to take 43inches TV with no extra charge. Thanks.

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.

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.

Hi dear. Am traveling next month from Riyadh to Srinagar via Air India and back also with Air India in October. Wanted to ask what's the per bag weight limit for both sides. Because what I understood from your previous answers u said 32kg max per bag, does that mean it can be 32kg one bag n the other 8kg? Also the 5 litres zam zam allowed per person is deducted from the 40kg allowed or is it allowed above that limit?

Admin Reply :

Baggage allowance is what is permitted by the airline to be carried on its flight. However, for the ease of handling the check in bags at airport, there is an international convention to have only 32 kg max limit for one check in baggage. So, if an airline allows you to carry more, say 40 kg or 50 kg in check in baggage, you will have to take it in 2 bags. 

Now, w.r.t. your query you are allowed 30 kg check in from Del-RUH and 40 kg while coming back. Zam Zam water has to be a part of your check in baggage only.

Flying Delhi to Coimbatore and need to take my bicycle. Are there extra weight or handling charges? Any specific packing directions?

Admin Reply :

If it is being carried within the check in baggage allowance limits,there is nothing else to be paid. However, there have been cases where the airline staff at the airport, after seeing the nature of bicycle, have denied its carriage (perhaps due to oversize). Therefore, if it is suitably packed and is being carried within limits of size of check in baggage, it shall not be a problem.

Airlines does not have any issue with the carriage of spices or seasoning but you must check the customs regulations for entry in USA. We can not say about it.

What is the nature of liquid toiletries? No more than 100ml per bottle in sealed condition would be allowed, if at all allowed. Thus, if you want to carry these, it is better to keep these in check-in.

My family are planning on taking a return trip from Jaipur to Birmingham (BHX) in August and have to take an internal flight from Jaipur to Delhi. My question is that international flights seem to have the weight limit of 23kg per person but internal flights only have 15kg! Would we have to pre book excess baggage for internal Indian flights Jaipur to Delhi? Air India times don't tally up all through, so we will have to use a different airline for both internal and international flights.

Admin Reply :

You are right. You will have to pre-book excess baggage if taking two different carriers. However, Air India is providing 25 kg allowance for domestic flights in economy class.

Good morning, I'm flying by Air India from Bangkok to Vienna (via New Delhi). 1. How much kilos is allowed for checked baggage free of charge - 20 or 23 kg? (There is 20 kg max. weight of baggage written on the air-ticket.) 2. 20 kg (resp. 23 kg) free of charge is meant for one piece of baggage or it might be two pieces? (would that be OK to check-in two pieces of baggage: 10 kg + 13 kg = 23 kg of total weight?) 3. If there is a limit up to 20 kg of baggage free of charge, then how much would be charged those extra 3 kilos? (in Thai Bath, USD, or EUR?)

You will be allowed 30 kg check in and 8 kg cabin allowance. You can take more than one bag within this permitted allowance.

You are right. Air India does not seem to have any clue. They say that this has to be collapsible to carry but fail to understand that this is not stroller. Anyways, we believe they might charge you for carrying it above allowance limit.

As you said guitar will be allowed only in Check in baggage so will it be considered as additional baggage or we can carry one instrument as free baggage? Because it's full size acoustic guitar.

Admin Reply :

You might have to pay special handling charges (which are mentioned in the content above) due to its size. You would be allowed to take it. If total weight exceeds check in baggage weight allowance, you might also be required to pay for excess weight.

Hallo..sir/madam I have a question about international luggage allowance.. My flight is from Birmingham to Delhi.airindia..I am confused about weight..If I carry a bag of 23 KGS and 2other of 12:10kgs..how to calculate the luggage ..please let me know I given only example..is the total luggage should be in 46 KGS or I can carry only 2 bags of 23kgs each..thanks.

Admin Reply :

It is very simple to understand. Allowance for check in baggage is 2 bags of 23 kg each. Thus, if you take more weight in one bag above 23 kg and upto 32 kg, you will have to pay for it. It is not 46 kg in total, but 2 pcs of max 23 kg each to be carried free.

Awaiting your reply eagerly.

Air India allows 2 pcs of 23 kg each on its economy class ticket from London to Ahmedabad. An extra 23 kg baggage would cost you GBP 140 per piece. TV can be taken free so long as it is within permitted allowance of baggage by weight, size and number of pcs.

Will I be allowed two pieces of checked baggage(23kg each) for my Delhi to Vijayawada flight even though they are two separate reservations/tickets. Appreciate your clarification on this.

Admin Reply :

No, Air India will not accept this international allowance on its domestic flights. You will have to pay excess baggage charges.

I have a used 2 yr old 50 inch Philips LED TV in Dubai. I have the bill with me (AED.1899). 1. Which all airlines will allow me to carry this to Cochin? 2. How much customs duty I have to pay

Admin Reply :

Almost all airlines would allow its carriage to Cochin. Indigo, Spicejet and Jet would levy charges towards special handling even if it is within the permitted bagggae allowance by weight since it is more than 39 inches. Other airlines fro Gulf would allow it so long as it fits into the size and weight limits of their check in baggage allowances. 

We are not an authority on Customs and hence can not comment on its duties.

hello, I have booked air india ticket for ahmedabad to Frankfurt on 25th March. I have student visa of germany and I am flying for first time to Germany. According to maharaja scholar scheme I will be allowed one excess baggage, but in terms and conditions they mentioned only 40 KGS. But when I asked to customer care service center of air India they give me answer that I will be allowed 23+23=46 KGS. So please clarify my query . What should I do? shall I go with 46kg or 40kg. and in laptop bag can I add some books and novels to read?

Admin Reply :

If you have booked ticket before 1 March 2016, your normal allowance will be 1 bag of 23 kg. If you hold a valid student visa, then because the baggage allowance for you is as per the piece system, the addiitonal allowance would be 1 bag of 23 kg. Thus, it will be 23+23 kg. Please note that these shall be two bags of up to 23 kg each.

Admin Reply :

If all are connecting flights provided by Air India and you are travelling on same PNR, Air India will allow a through check-in. However, it is also to be seen whether there is any stopover of a long period of time. Generally, stopovers of more than 12 hours are required to re-checkin their bags. It would be good if could seek this information from the agent which booked the ticket or airline staff at airport.

30 kg is check in allowance from Kabul and 8 kg cabin. Standard laptop bag can be carried extra. Therefore, check in baggage is more by 1 kg which will entail excess charge.

I have flight from Del to Melbourne. Your customer care people gv me diff answers. Requesting a confirmed answer from U.. Apart from 8 kg hand baggage... I have ladies Hand bag and a dslr...firstly, any weight restrictions to ladies hand bag . Plus dslr us excluded from 8 kg limit if I carry it around my neck. If not, can I put it in my hand bag?

Admin Reply :

At first, we are not connected to any airline and are independent service providers and you certainly did not reach our customer service since there is none. 

Now, you will be allowed either a hand purse/bag or a dslr camera along with the 8 kg cabin luggage. Second, hand purse shall be like the one which is usually carried by the ladies and of standard size. It shall not look like another cabin baggage. It would be good if you could carry DSLR in cabin luggage within 8 kg limit and hand purse separately. However, the final call is to be taken by the airline staff at the airport.

This is the information provided by Air India customer support. Please verify it from your local office as well in AUD terms.

Sir, I am travelling by Ethiopian Airlines from Luanda (LAD), Angola to Chennai (MAA ) Madras via Mumbai (BOM) Bombay. What is the Free Checked-In Baggage Allowance and Hand Carry Baggage per person when Flight Tickets are purchased at Luanda, Angola. What is the rate of 1kg of excess baggage from Luanda to Mumbai by Ethiopian and Mumbai to Chennai by Air India. Kindly reply as you please.

Admin Reply :

Though we do not cover Ethiopian for now, we searched for baggage allowance information for you. Interestingly, they have given all information about the allowance from USA/Canda/South America flights where piece concept applies, but not for India. We would advice you to seek information from the local Ethiopian office. We will soon be adding this airline to our list as well after speaking to their representatives. Since Ethiopian is the first flier and you have ticketed whole journey from it, its allowance will be applicable.

Hi. I am flying from Delhi to South Korea. I am going on student visa. How much baggage is allowed for student visa holder? And I've booked my tickets online so do I need to apply to avail this extra piece of baggage offer? If so, then what kind of documents I have to submit and when?

Admin Reply :

For Seoul, the students travelling on valid visa are allowed one additional check in bag of up to 20 kg. However, this additional baggage and your allowance shall together not be more than 40 kg. 40 kg is the upper limit and you will have to divide this 40 kg in 2 bags since 1 bag shall not be more than 32kg. 

You have to take this valid visa to the airport check in counter and show them the same to avail of this additional baggage. It is better to carry a photocopy of the same as well.

Hi there, I am flying from Bangkok to Rome on the 12th of February 2016. I am checking online and it is really confusing about baggage allowance. I booked the ticket from an itaian agency and on the ticket is written that I have 30 kg. But checking online I found that some website says 23kg and this website says 30kg. What is it 23kg or 30kg? It is really important that I know because on addition of my luggage I have 44kg of sport equipment. Again everything is really confusing. How much should I pay for 2 separates bags with kite surfing staff? Please help!! Claudia

Hyderabad to Bangalore (Air India) Bangalore to London (BA flight) London to NewYork (BA flight) I have an AirIndia domestic flight starting from HYD to BANGALORE. Can I check-in my 2 bags (23 Kgs each) in Air India flight for free ?

Admin Reply :

Baggage allowance policy of British Airways will apply because tickets are bookeed with BA and it also operates the longer leg of journey. Thus, Air India shall allow it free.

Either a purse or a laptop will be allowed along with cabin baggage of 8 kg. Yes, if you are carrying a valid student visa, showing that would be suffice.

He will travel to delhi from Pune on the same day by another Air India flight. During this travel from Pune to Delhi, whether he has to pay additional charges for his luggage? He will carry luggage as per international travel allowance. That is more than domestic allowance.

If the PNR is same, then international allowance would be allowed on the domestic route, otherwise domestic allowance will be applicable for domestic flights and will have to pay for excess baggage if you carry as per international allowance.

Admin Reply :

If these are two separate tickets, then you will have to take the baggage and recheck in. However, if the ticket is same for both legs of journeys, you will have to ask Air India for a through check in. Sometimes, they do provide but for some routes they might not. It is better to ask them with your booking details.

Generally, through check in is provided on condition that the layover time is not too much. So, airline would be able to reflect better on this as per your booking details. Yes, you are right in calculation of baggage allowance for F1 Visa holders.

Hi, Im going to travel from Mumbai to Jamnagar on Air India, I will carry with me a suitcase with about 20 kg, and i would like to carrie my Cycle with me too. The bicycle will go disassembled inside a box. the total weight should round the 16kg. Is there any regulation on the transport of bikes? What is the rates applied? Thanks in advance. Amit

Admin Reply :

Cycle can be taken in check in baggage in a disssembled form in its box. If total weight and dimensions of baggage are not crossed, then free allowance permitted.However, it will be at the discretion of the airline staff present at the airport. In case total weight is more than the permitted allowance for check in baggage (which is 25 kg for travelling economy on domestic routes), you will have to pay excess baggage charge @ Rs 250 per kg.

Sir, im planning to fly from Cochi, India to Calgary, Canada in economy class. (via AI 55 to Mumbai, AI 131 towards London and AI 7313 to Calgary On march 2nd) . 1) I don’t understand that each check in luggage should not exceed 62inches (158 CM)but combined dimension should not exceed 107 inches. How the combined dimension is calculated? 2) I have 2bags, each with less than 158 cm total dimension. Will I have to pay excess luggage fee? If yes how much? 3) I m allowed to take a cabin luggage of 8kg. How much its dimension? Will I be able to take a ladies handbag and a winter jacket in addition to the 8kg bag free of cost? Please reply my queries. Thanking you in anticipation.

Admin Reply :

Combined dimension is calculated by adding the sum of dimensions of two bags. While each bag shall be less than 158 cms in dimension, both shall be less than 273 cms, You are allowed to take cabin baggage of 8 kg. Dimensions shall be 20 cm, 40 cm , 55 cm for cabin baggage. You are allowed to take 1 personal item along with the cabin baggage of 8 kg. So, in hand, you will be allowed either a hand purse or a winter jacket. You can wear winter jacket.

It is 2 pcs of 23 kg each for economy class travel, not 25 kg each. If you are taking economy class ticket, stereo box will be considered an additional bag and will be charged GBP 140. You can check these rates at http://www.airindia.in/excess-baggage.htm.

Dear sir, 1. I am not understand your reply that 30 kgs of check in luggage with sum of dimensions of 158 cms for each bag, it mean can i take a luggage with dimension 156x1x1 cms (sum 158 cms). 2. I will travel with my family (spouse +infant ) in the month of Jan 2016 from bhopal-mum- dubai with AIR india only. So how much max. luggage with infant holding and may i re-check in again at mumbai airport. please let me knw

Admin Reply :

Dimension limit for check in bags is considered in terms of sum of L+B+H. Some airlines also have strict stipulations on individual L, B and H dimensions as well but in India this is generally relaxed. Thus, guiding principle is to keep sum of dimensions of check in bag less than 158 cms. 

If you are travelling economy in Air India, then check in baggage allowance will be as per international allowance on domestic route as well provided that you have not bought two separate tickets. Through check in is allowed but it shall be requested with the airline or the agency which booked ticket.

Hi,Me and my 2 nd half years old kid r travelling from US to India on economy tickets. How many checked in luggage and hand luggages allowed for my kid? Can I take stroller along with hand luggage for my kid? For me ,sum of linear dimensions of 2pc check in luggage s more than 107 inch but individually less than 62 inchs,should I need to pay charges?

Admin Reply :

Adults and children of more than 2 years of age are allowed same baggage allowance. Therefore, the allowance would be 2 bags of 23 kgs each towards check in and 7 kg cabin baggage for adult and child passengers. Stroller will be allowed in check in baggage only if it is fully collapsible. If sum of dimensions is more than 107 inches then USD 200 would be charged.

You will have to pay oversized baggage charges for Air India as one of the bags is more than 158 cms in dimensions. Laptop can be carried in hand along with the check in baggage in a separate laptop bag.

You have made a very valid point which we missed. We thank you for it. As per the change in the baggage policy of Air India, the allowance on Riyadh-India flights is now 50, 40 and 30 kgs respectively for First, Executive and Economy class. So, it is 30 kgs for economy class travel.

I have been desperately trying to get in touch with your customer care help lines and there is no response. I'm flying from Newark liberty Intl airport on 4th of November with Air India to Ahmedabad via Mumbai. I needed to speak to someone about special baggage. Could you please let me know if I can bring a guitar in a soft case as cabin baggage ? It's a very delicate guitar and I'd like to know this as soon as possible. Could you kindly guide me to a number where someone actually responds ? Thanks

Admin Reply :

As per the policy of Air India, musical instruments are not allowed to be carried in the cabin, These have to be taken as check in baggage only. You can put the guitar in a hard case to be carried in check in. It can be taken as a part of the free baggage allowance. 

Please note that we are an independent group, not related to any airline.

Can you please let me know if i am bringing excess luggage in baggage; so what will be the extra cost will be charged? Please let me know ASAP? Thanks in advance.

Admin Reply :

Cabin allowance is of 8 kgs, not 7 kgs. Check in allowance is of 30 kgs  in economy. Excess baggage charge is calculated on the basis of a per kg rate which is determined on the basis of a formula. It is taken at 1.5% of highest direct one way normal economy class fare. They do not have flat rate per kg. 

One small correction to make to this answer. Air India now allows 10 kg of excess to be carried at payment of a fee of USD 40. Beyond free allowance and 10 kg, the excess weight is charged as per the percentage mentioned above.

If it is a connecting flight provided by Air India and there is not a layover of too many hours at the airport, you can get through check in for your luggage. However, sometimes they do require a special request to be made to them. So, please do ask them for through check in.

Respected sir/madam, My inter national flight is allowing me to carry 46kg check-in baggage along with 7kg hand carry. I prefer to take domestic connecting flight to reach my home city within 24 hours from the time of departure to and arrival from international flight. Is that possible for me to carry the same luggage.

Only GoAir and Air Costa are the two national carriers which allow international allowance on domestic routes within 24 hours time frame. For Air India domestic flights, its own allowance policies will be applicable.

You are asking question very early. There can be changes in allowance policies till then. However, as the rules stand today, if you are travelling on a valid student visa, you can carry a maximum of 40 kg baggage allowance. This can be divided into 2 bags with weight of one not being more than 32 kgs.

Admin Reply :

Maximum weight allowed for check in baggage to Australia for student holding a valid student visa on Air India is 40 kg only. This is both for Executive class and Economy Class travel. Please also note that the standard baggage allowance is 40 kg for one-way fare from India to Melbourne/Sydney and there is an allowance of 20 kg for the students travelling on valid student visa but the total limit of check in baggage is capped at 40 kgs only. Therefore, you will be allowed only 40 kg baggage allowance at the maximum.

Travelling India to Singapore in economy class entitles you to a 30 kg allowance. If travelling on valid Student Visa,you can carry additional 20 kg allowance but there is an upper limit of total 40 kg which can be carried. Thus, in your case, it will be 40 kgs. And, each bag shall not weigh more than 32 kgs.

Dear Admin, I am travelling from UK to India, please let me know how many laptops I can carry and how much cash I can take with me. My Baggage allowance is 46kgs, if I take another parcel with me (3rd parcel) how much will that cost (weight is around 5 kgs) Regards

Admin Reply :

Extra piece of baggage will cost you GBP 140 per piece. However, if there is a possiblility to add these 5 kgs extra in one of two 23 kg bags to increase weight of one bag to 28 kg and keep the linear dimensions within 158 cms, you will have to pay only GBP 40 for that over-weight bag. However, if dimensions increase 158 cm, it is better to take it as  3 rd bag and pay GBP 140.

Admin Reply :

Air India, as per what they inform us, allows carriage of LEDs up to 60 inches in check in luggage and do not charge if weight is up to free allowance. From London, to any destination via India, the allowances are 30, 40 and 50 kgs for economy, executive and first class travel respectively. Hence, if TV is within this limit, which is the case, there will be no charge.

We have received this query many times and every time we ask Air India, they simply refuse. This means that this is no longer the policy, though it might have been so sometime in past. Defence personnel are only allowed discounts in air fare but no special allowance in luggage.

Hi Thank you for a quick response. It looks like I have misunderstood the uk to Delhi flight has s different flight number to the Delhi to Bangalore flight. Even thou it was all booked together so I believe this is not a connecting flight because two different flight numbers is that correct? So how much per kg will I have to pay as I intend taking 46kg because I then am telling to amritsar.

Admin Reply :

Flight no. is not important. When you are ticketed on same PNR for both journeys are are issued single ticket, then international allowance will be applicable on domestic route as well. However, let us inform you that the excess baggage rate per kg will be based on 1.5% of one-way economy ticket fare for adult. So, it will be based on air fare your day of flight.
