The Delhi-based low-cost airline IndiGo has introduced IndiGo Seat Plus in which a passenger will be charged a premium of Rs 500 for sitting in Rows 1, 2, 12 and 13 on a domestic flight and Rs 800 for an international flight.

For all other window and aisle seats which are pre-booked, a passenger will be charged Rs 200 for a domestic flight and Rs 300 for an international flight.

In a circular to travel agents, the airline has said that those pre-booking all other middle seats will be charged Rs 100 on a domestic flight and Rs 200 on an international flight.

IndiGo follows the footsteps of state-owned Air India which announced that domestic passengers will not be charged for check-in baggage up to 15 kg. It will charge a flat rate of Rs 250 per kg for check-in baggage that are over 15 kg.

While Air India has said that the revised baggage rate will apply to all tickets sold after May 13, IndiGo has not indicated from when it will start charging the new rates.

The decision to charge these new fees comes days after the Ministry of Civil Aviation allowed domestic airlines to charge passengers for a host of services including checked in bags and preferred seating.
