Air India's baggage policy is designed to ensure the safe and efficient transportation of passengers and their belongings. Therefore, following the size and weight allowances and additional regulations can provide a smooth travel experience with Air India.
Carry-on/Cabin Baggage Policy
Air India allows its passengers to carry one piece of hand baggage on board, along with a personal item such as a laptop bag, handbag, or briefcase. The maximum weight of the hand baggage should not exceed 8 kg, and its dimensions should not exceed 55cm x 35cm x 25cm (length x width x height). In addition, the personal item should be smaller in size than the hand baggage and should be able to fit under the seat in front of you.
NOTE: Bulkhead seats lack under-seat storage, so all carry-on and cabin luggage must be stored in the overhead compartment during takeoff and landing.
