IndiGo Credit Shell

Now you might have heard this term a lot in the last few months. A credit shell is basically airline credits which is transferred to your account whenever a flight is cancelled by the airline. You can use these credits to book a flight for yourself in the future. One of the good things about the credit shell is that it is valid for up to one year. So within that one year, you can book yourself a flight whenever subject to availability.

Baggage and Meals

If you are booking directly with the airline’s website then you can also go to its bag and meals section to purchase extra baggage if need be. IndiGo flyers get a variety of packages to choose from depending on the excess baggage weight they are carrying. Along with that, customers can book meals and even alcoholic beverages if they wish to.

Some Important Decision Taken by the Airline

First of all, web check-in has been made mandatory by IndiGo. There is no more airport check-in available for the passengers. So ensure that you are checked-in before you reach the airport. You must sign the health declaration form consenting that your health is good and it is safe for you to travel. Every passenger must have the Aarogya Setu app installed in their smartphones. It is not mandatory for children below the age of 14 though. Boarding pass and bag tags need to be printed by the customer itself.

The passengers must reach 2 hours before the scheduled departure of their flights. To follow all the social distancing norms, every passenger should maintain distance with a fellow passenger and at all times keep wearing a mask and hand gloves at the airport and inside the aircraft.
