For web check-in of a first-row seat, a passenger will have to pay Rs 800 extra, while a non-reclining seat in row 12, next to the emergency exit, will cost an additional Rs 600 when selected online.

 

Mumbai: Passengers of no-frills carrier IndiGo will have to shell out up to Rs 800 extra if they opt for web check-in, as the airline has revised its policy.
 
"As per our revised policy all seats are chargeable for web check-in. Alternatively, you may check-in at the airport for free. Seats will be assigned as per the availability," IndiGo said in a series of tweets on Sunday.
 
The Gurugram-headquartered airline reported its first quarterly loss at Rs 651 crore in July-September period amid high fuel cost and rupee depreciation.
 
The revised policy is effective from November 14, it said.
 
 

 

Accordingly, IndiGo will charge between Rs 100-800 for such selection online, depending upon the position of the seat.
 
For web check-in of a first-row seat, a passenger will have to pay as much as Rs 800 extra, while a non-reclining seat in row 12, which is next to the emergency exit, will cost an additional Rs 600 when selected online. A middle seat in the last row will cost Rs 100 more, as per the revised charges.
 
Earlier, the budget carrier charged only for particular types of seats like a window or aisle seat or seat having extra legroom when passenger opted for online selection.
