New Delhi: Budget carrier IndiGo has announced that it will charge Rs 100 from passengers as service fee if he or she wants to check-in at the airport counters.
The announcement comes after the aviation ministry in May had made it mandatory for passengers to do web check-in so as to reduce touchpoints at the airport amid the coronavirus pandemic. Once web check-in is done, the online boarding pass is issued by the airline to the passenger.
IndiGo’s service fee of Rs 100 for check-in at the airport counters is already effective from October 17, 2020.
However if passegers want to save the money on service charge, they can avail the web check-in facility using Indigo website or mobile app.
When can you do web-check in?

They can do so up to 48 hours to 60 min before flight departure.

If you’re carrying check-in baggage, you can go to bag drop counter.
