Considering that passengers wish to carry more things with them which go beyond the permitted limit, the airline has come up with an option to carry up to a five kgs heavier additional bag on board. If you don’t wish to check in your hand baggage, you can now carry it with yourself! This means passengers can carry a total of 12 kgs hand baggage with them on board. The permitted limit within the standard is seven kgs. The ‘Carry-On Plus’ is complimentary for all our Business Class, Premium Economy, and Club Vistara Platinum and Gold customers.
“We realize that there are times when you need to carry a little more than is permitted within the standard seven kgs of hand baggage allowance. With this service, you will have the option to carry up to a five kg heavier bag on board and enjoy the convenience and peace of mind of keeping your documents and valuables with you, instead of being forced to check-in the bag”, the airline said.
This facility that has been rolled out by Vistara will make the post-arrival experience real fast, with no need to wait for your bag at baggage claim. The airline in its statement said, “While you can carry on more weight, the physical dimensions of the carry-on bag needs to be within the current permissible limit: Maximum dimension = length + height + width should not exceed 158cms. And as always, an additional piece such as a laptop bag or ladies purse is permitted, as long as it can fit under the seat in front”.
All other customers can also enjoy the convenience of ‘Carry-On Plus’ at a nominal fee of Rs 250 per kg, payable in advance on our website, or buyable at our airport ticket offices (ATOs) and our check-in counters. So don’t let your hand baggage seem like a burden to you. Enjoy the new feeling and convenience of ‘Carry-On Plus’ and travel hassle-free.
