IndiGo Hikes Seat-Selection Charge in some categories

IndiGo Hikes Seat-Selection Charge in some categories

The largest carrier in the nation in terms of market share and fleet, IndiGo, announced that the fuel charge will be eliminated on January 4, 2024. The airline has now raised its ancillary fees for seat selection in addition to raising the seat-selection fees.

Certain seats will now be priced at ₹2000 as of right now due to the change. The fees were updated on the company’s website today and have been shown on its booking engine.

The previously stated price range of ₹150 to ₹1500 has been revised to ₹150 to ₹2000, a 33% increase at the upper end. IndiGo designates certain of its seats as “XL,” designating those with more legroom or, in the case of first-row seats, convenience in terms of boarding early.

Prices have been known to decrease in certain instances, so the increase has not been consistent. On the more than 40 ATR 72-600 flights that the airline operates, there has been no change in the available seats.

For rows 2 and 3 on the Airbus fleet, the seat-selection fees have dropped from ₹450 to ₹400. The fees for aisle, window, and even middle seats on the A320s, however, have increased from ₹250 to ₹400 for rows 11 and 14 by 20. Optimising ancillary revenues is the goal of the airline’s pricing adjustments.
