After the Civil Aviation Ministry gave permission to airlines to decide baggage limitations for domestic passenger flights, Vistara announced that it has reverted to pre-coronavirus baggage allowance for all bookings and travel. Taking to Twitter, the airline tweeted, “We have reverted to the pre-COVID baggage allowance for all bookings and travel effective 28th Sept’20.”
There will be no piece restriction either, except for those booked under the Economy Lite fare, Vistara noted. Before the coronavirus outbreak, Air India was the only airline which allowed its passengers to check in 20 kg. Most of the private airlines allowed economy class passengers 15 kg of free checked-in baggage allowance.
In an order dated September 23, 2020, the ministry said the “baggage limitation would be as per airlines’ policies”.
“The matter with regard to check-in baggage has been reviewed based on the feedback/inputs received from the concerned stakeholders,” the ministry noted.
