Akasa Air raises Pet Weight Limit for Cabin Travel to 10 kg

Akasa Air has made traveling with pets easier for passengers by raising the weight limit for pets in the cabin to 10 kg on domestic flights.

This change, announced on May 8, comes as a response to customer feedback and marks an adjustment from the previous 7 kg limit set in November 2022.
