According to the revised flying norms issued by the aviation ministry, there will be no restrictions on check-in baggage and passengers can carry as much allowed by respective airline.
“Baggage limitations will be as per the airlines’ policies,” read the order by the aviation ministry.
After the ministry’s order, Aviation regulator Directorate General of Civil Aviation will issue an order today on the same.
Domestic airlines in India allow 15 kilogram of free check-in baggage on flights and one has to pay, if it exceeds the free limit.
The government has allowed resumption of domestic flight on and from May 25 with restrictions.
Initially, passengers were not even allowed to carry cabin baggage and those rules were eventually relaxed.
While air travel is moving towards normalcy with number of flights increasing and flying full, airlines still need to add many more flights to go back to ore-COVID levels.
Airlines operated 1320 flights on Wednesday, which is a huge improvement from about 700 daily flights airlines started with.
Pre-COVID airlines operated about 2,500 daily flights in the domestic sector.
