Passenger Info - Air Travel

 The most common rules & safety precautions that apply at Indian Airports have been put together in the form of this Docket. We suggest that you read through it carefully and kindly contact your airline/travel agent/respective airports if you have any further clarifications.


Baggage, Dangerous Goods,  Packing Tips, Traveling with Children, At the Airport, Check-in, Safety on the Tarmac, On the Airplane


There are strict rules on items that you can bring into the aircraft. Both carry-on and checked baggage are subject to being hand-searched by the security personnel, especially when the x-ray scan cannot determine its contents. Please be cooperative.


Electronic items such as laptop computers and cell phones may be subjected to additional screening. Be prepared to remove your laptop from its travel case so that it can be x-rayed separately, also get ready to answer the questions about every single content in your travel baggage. Be aware, criminals may use unsuspecting passengers to carry bombs or other dangerous items onto aircraft. So when asked questions such as “who packed your bags?” or “have you left them unattended at anytime?” think carefully and answer the questions honestly.


Carry-On / Hand Baggage

In general, air travelers are limited to one carry-on bag and one personal item on all flights. The lighter one goes into the overhead rack and the heavier one under your seat. The bag or briefcase for the overhead rack should be less than 20 kgs and no larger than 9" x 14" x 22".


The overhead storage bins or area under the seat may not be able to hold heavy objects as it could injure other passengers in case of a turbulence / accident. Therefore, for the comfort and safety of all passengers, it is necessary to limit the size and weight of your cabin baggage. Also, try not to pack more baggage than you can carry.


Articles such as umbrellas and baby stroller are most often allowed. All sharp, cutting and puncturing instruments (including pocketknives, razors and metal scissors) are not permitted as part of you carry-on luggage. So kindly ensure that they are safely & securely packed in your checked baggage, if you need to carry them with you. Other restricted items in carry-on-luggage include knives of any length, sports equipment that could be used as a weapon such as baseball bats, hockey sticks.


Baggage and Baggage Allowance:

Passenger's free entitlement is as follows:

Economy class

Adult or child: 30 kgs

Infant: 10 kgs

First/Executive Class

Adult or child: 40 kgs

Infant: 10 kgs

Baggage weighing more than the free allowance will be paid for by rates calculated per excess kilo of weight.

Dangerous Goods

Here is some precaution you need to take when you pack your bags. Failure to observe these simple facts could endanger you, the aircraft and all its passengers.


  1. Check the items in your baggage for any ‘hazardous’ symbols displayed.
  2. Do not pack or carry firearms, fireworks, flammable materials or pressurized containers such as spray cans, scuba tanks or propane tanks.
  3. There are dozens of materials that are too hazardous to transport on aircraft, which have been known to destroy their surroundings.
  4. Common items used everyday in the home or workplace may seem harmless, however, when transported by air, they can be very dangerous. In flight, variations in pressure, temperature or vibration can cause items to leak, generate toxic fumes bursting out of their containers and setting on fire.
  5. You may check with your travel agent / airline for a list of prohibited or restricted goods.
  6. If you illegally carry dangerous goods on board it could lead to    severe civil penalties, as well as possible criminal prosecution.

Packing Tips

1.     Do not wrap bungee cords, ties or straps around baggage.

2.     Attach identification tags to the inside and outside of the bag, giving destination as well as home addresses. Most airlines provide free stick-on tags.

3.     Keep all medications and high value items such as cameras, jewelry, electronic devices, travel documents and cash with you. Do not put them in checked baggage.

4.     Don't over pack your baggage. This puts pressure on the latches, making it easier to spring open.

5.     Pack your own baggage. Keep them locked at all times.

6.     Don't leave baggage unattended or with someone you don't know.

7.     Watch your bags and personal belongings at all times.

8.     Make sure that you get a claim check for every bag that you check. Don't throw them away until your bags are returned. Not only will you need them if a claim is necessary, but you may need to show them to security upon leaving the baggage-claim area.

9.     Verify that the agent checking your bags attaches a destination tag to each one. Remove tags from previous trips to avoid confusion.

Some companies and travel agencies offer optional baggage                                                                  insurance. Buy "excess valuation" from the airline if your baggage is worth more than the airline's liability limit. 

Traveling with Children

While you make your booking, check with the airline on the kind of arrangements they provide for the safe transport of your infant. You may follow their recommendations for using appropriate arrangements for your child.

  1. Take all essential items for the child in carry-on luggage, including a child restraint system appropriate for their weight. Children under the age of 2 may be carried on your lap, but the child should have some kind of restraint system to ensure safety during flight.
  2. It is advisable to carry your baby on a front pack or a snap-front jacket (Body suits for babies). The baby would then be safely tucked in and strapped to the parent, ensuring optimum comfort & safety.

Make sure you are aware of emergency equipment or procedures          that would apply to your child. It is the responsibility of the parent or responsible adult to take care of children.

At the Airport

  1. Do not leave your car unattended in front of the terminal. Airport parking rules and security measures are being strictly enforced and your car may be ticketed and towed away, if you fail to abide by the rules.
  2. Do not carry baggage for other people.
  3. Do not accept packages from strangers.
  4. If you see unattended bags or packages anywhere in the airport terminal or parking
  5. Lot, immediately report them to airport security.
  6. Report any suspicious activities in the airport or parking area to security or other authority.

It is advisable not to joke about carrying a bomb or discuss terrorism of any sort while going through the security checkpoint. The mere mention of such words can compel security personnel to detain and question you. They are trained to consider these comments as real threats.


Arrive early. Don't check-in at the last minute. Current airport security measures increase the time needed to check-in. For International travel we recommend arriving at least 2 hours before your flight. However, passengers may consult with their airline for more specific arrival times.

  1. To facilitate an on-time departure, we recommend that you allow ample time for check-in. When traveling around holidays or other peak travel times, please allow additional time.
  2. Make more time at the airport if traveling with young children, infants, or disabled passengers. This will reduce stress and a better seat selection.
  3. Reservations are subject to cancellation if you are not checked-in and available for boarding at the gate at the time prescribed prior to departure.

You should be on board and ready for an on-time departure, at least 10 minutes before your flight.

Safety on the Tarmac

Be aware of jet blasts from aircrafts turning or moving on the tarmac. Make sure you are clear on the safest route whether embarking or disembarking. And always keep an eye on any children in your care.
The power of the aircraft engine is enough to raise sheets of iron off roofs. Imagine what it could do to you or your child.

On the Airplane

Safety Briefing

Always listen to the pre-flight safety briefing because every aircraft has different standards. Take the passenger safety card in the seat pocket in front of you and follow along while you listen to the safety briefing.

  1. Make a mental plan of action in case of emergency. If you have any questions about the safety procedures, ask the flight attendant.
  2. Keep your seatbelt fastened at all times. Make sure your seat belt is secured snugly and low across the hips. This provides the extra protection you might need if the plane hits unexpected turbulence.
  3. [Turbulence is an air movement that can be created by atmospheric conditions, including mountain waves or thunderstorms.]
  4. Air turbulence tragedy may be extremely rare but like they say “precaution is better than cure”. So try to keep your seat belts on, even if the seat belt sign is not on.

Emergency Exits

  1. Once you reach your seat, locate the closest emergency exit in front and behind you. The location of the emergency exits in relation to your seat differs depending on the particular aircraft you are flying on.
  2. Take note of the seat rows to reach those emergency exits. In the unlikely event of an emergency this will be very helpful for you to follow the instructions of the flight attendants and flight crew and exit the aircraft as quickly as possible.

Flotation Devices

Life vests (under seat) and some seat cushions can be used as flotation devices. You need to know how to use your life jacket and where they are located, even if it seems like you are only flying over land.


  1. Pull oxygen mask towards you to start oxygen flow, in case of emergency. You will receive the necessary instructions from your air hostess / flight attendant.
  2. Put your own mask first. Help children and others with their masks only after yours are secure. This will decrease the risk of you passing out before being able to help your children or other passengers.

Fire or Smoke

  1. Move away from fire and smoke.
  2. Stay low. The air is clearer close to the floor.
  3. If possible, use wet napkin or handkerchief over nose and mouth
  4. The flight crew will guide you on the proper procedures to evacuation


The atmosphere in a commercial jet cabin is pressurized to 8,000 feet above sea level. Less oxygen is absorbed into the blood and circulated throughout the body due to a decrease in air density with increased cruising altitudes that can reach upwards of 40,000 feet. Therefore, any alcohol you consume will affect you more noticeably than when consumed on the ground-level.

Cabin Air

The cabin air system in most jetliners is designed to provide a safe and comfortable cabin environment. Air supplied into the cabin is at least 50 per cent fresh air brought in from outside the aircraft while the balance is mixed with highly filtered air from the passenger cabin. The air is conditioned for temperature and humidity before entering the aircraft cabin.

Cell Phones, Radios and Laptops

Cell phones, Radios, Laptops and other personal electronic devices have been banned for air-borne use because the signals could interfere with critical aircraft navigational system.  However, the most recent satellite technologies have made it possible for Wireless Connectivity even while air-borne. Kindly contact your Airline to find more details on the usage of electronic devices on board. Sky phone facility is available in all major Airlines.
