Hoping to improve its margins and operational efficiency, GoAir has decided to charge additional fees for carrying excess baggage and for having the desire to take window seat.
According to media report, GoAir will charge Rs 200 extra for pre-selecting each window and aisle seat on GoAir flights, while you will be paying around Rs 500 extra for pre-booking seats with more legroom on rows three, 12 and 13.
The airline has also made provisions for pre-purchasing excess baggage limits in increments of three, five and 10 kg. The passenger will have to shell out Rs 300 for carrying additional check-in baggage of up to three kg over and above the standard limit of 20 kg, while the charges for carrying extra baggage of five kg and 10 kg are Rs 900 and Rs 1,800, respectively.
The move comes soon after civil aviation ministry allowed carriers to unbundle some services and charge them separately, opening up additional revenue streams for airlines.
