SpiecJet, Jet Airways increasing excess baggage fees
New Delhi: Advising travellers to travel light, numbers of private Indian Airlines have enhanced their excess baggage fees. The companies including SpiceJet and Jet Airways enhanced their excess baggage charge from Rs 200 to Rs 250 and each additional kg, Jet Airways enhanced it by same amount to Rs 250 per kg earlier are set to be followed by other airlines also. Currently, airlines allow upto 20 Kg of free luggage on domestic flights.

According to airlines officials, the basic idea behind this step is to discourage passengers from carrying excess luggage. Lighter aircraft burns lesser fuel. The travellers are known to carry 13 kgs of luggage and fee enhancement will not cause any difference to them.

However, travellers with Air India can heave sigh of relief as it has no current plans to introduce any excess booking fees. Civil Aviation minister Ajit Singh had issued instructions to not to waive excess booking fees.

Excess baggage fees are major source of revenue for the airlines including domestic and internationals.
