About Air Deccan

Air Deccan was a domestic Indian airline that offered scheduled flights. The airline was based at Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj International Airport, Mumbai (BOM) and offered domestic flights throughout India. Although the airline flew to some of India's major airports, such as Indira Gandhi International, New Delhi (DEL), Air Deccan put a focus on flying to destinations within India that other major Indian airlines don't fly to.

Baggage Allowance

Carry-on Baggage

Passengers were not allowed a suitcase or large bag as carry-on baggage. However, they were allowed to bring a small personal item with them, such as a handbag, briefcase, laptop and case, diaper bag, small backpack or small duffel bag.

The small personal item must fit within the dimensions of 38 cm x 30 cm x 30 cm (15" x 12" x 12") and can't weigh more than 4 kg. There are no overhead lockers on Air Deccan flights, so the baggage must be able to fit under the seat in front of you.

Checked Baggage

Passengers were entitled to one item of free checked baggage with a maximum weight of 10kg. This baggage must fit within the dimensions of 76 cm x 50 cm x 30 cm (30" x 20" x 12").

Check-In Information

Online Check-In

Passengers could check-in online through the airline's page.

Airport Check-In

Passengers were able to check-in at the airport by presenting the relevant travel documents to a check-in agent at the check-in desk at the airport. Airport check-in opens 24 hours before scheduled flight departure time and closes 45 minutes before.

Class Fares

Air Deccan had an all Economy cabin.

Economy Class

The Economy Class service was delivered by the airline's attentive cabin crew, who are able to help you with any requests.


There were 18 seats per cabin. Each seat had 76 cm (30") of pitch and 51cm (20.2") of width. The cabin had 18 seats and is set out in a 1 x 1 configuration, which ensures that each passenger has either a window or aisle seat.

On-Board Entertainment

As Air Deccan operated short-haul, domestic flights, there was no in-flight entertainment system onboard.


Due to its short flight times and small aircraft, there was no WIFI onboard flights.

In-Flight Meals

There were no food services on Air Deccan flights. However, the cabin crew did offer each passenger a complimentary bottle of water and hard candy.

Airline Alliance

Air Deccan was not part of an airline alliance, as its primary goal was to serve destinations that not many airlines fly to.

Frequent Flyer Program

A frequent flyer program wasn't available.
