What are the flight times from Saudi Arabia to Delhi and from Delhi to SXR? GoAir will allow international allowance up to max 46 kg check in baggage if its domestic flight is within 24 hours of your international flight. Please retain the proof of journey on international flight with you (boarding pass when coming to Delhi and ticket of Saudia when going back) These have to be shown to GoAir check in counter.
