Air India denies claim of allowing 40 kg baggage for all India-Dubai passengers

Daijiworld Media Network - Dubai (SHP)
Dubai, Jul 18: On Wednesday, it was confirmed that not all Indian passengers flying to the UAE will be allowed to carry 40 kg baggage from India. Reports which stated that Air India chairman and managing director Ashwani Lohani had allowed 10 kg extra baggage for all passengers of India-Dubai flights were denied by the airlines. However, it will be applicable only to the passengers on board the new Indore-Dubai flight.


Air India spokesperson Dhananjay Kumar stated that the check-in baggage allowance was only increased for Indore-Dubai flight from 40 kg to 30 kg and the extra 10 kg baggage allowance will be in force until further notice. Kumar also clarified that the extra baggage is not for the passengers of the new Kolkata-Dubai flight.


The inaccurate information that got circulated was because of an Indian news agency who wrongly quoted Lohani, by stating that the national carrier had raised the baggage limit by 10 kg on flights from India to the UAE seeing the increase in public demand, following which a media from the UAE also reported the same thing.

However, the airlines have clarified regarding the same. The Indore-Dubai flights will operate thrice a week, on Tuesday, Friday and Sunday. The Kolkata flights to Dubai started on Tuesday and will operate four days a week, on Monday, Wednesday, Thursday and Saturday.
