Carry-On Plus


Now, carry up to 12kg hand baggage with you on board (if you prefer not to check it in) for a nominal fee.


Carry a little more, without any hassle.

We understand that there are times when you need to carry a little more than is permitted within the standard 7 kg hand baggage allowance. With Vistara’s Carry-On Plus, you can carry up to 5 kg in Economy and 2 kg additional on Premium Economy on board, and rest assured of keeping your documents and valuables within easy reach, instead of being forced to check-in. Your post-arrival experience will be quicker too, with no waiting for your bag at baggage claim.

While you are permitted to carry a heavier bag, 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 a complimentary service for all our Business Class 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 and mobile app, or can be purchased at our airport ticket offices (ATOs) and check-in counters.
