At Vistara, we are pleased to introduce ‘Carry-On Plus’, our newest service which will further enhance your experience when you fly with us.  

We realize that there are times when you need to carry a little more than is permitted within the standard 7kg hand baggage allowance. With this service, you will have the option to carry up to a 5 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.  Your post-arrival experience will be quicker too, with no need to wait for your bag at baggage claim.

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.

‘Carry-On Plus’ is complimentary for all our Business Class, Premium Economy, and Club Vistara Platinum and Gold customers. All other customers can also enjoy the convenience of 'Carry-On Plus' at a nominal fee of ₹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.
