Flight Information

You will fly into Vijayawada Airport (VGA) and be picked up by our staff from there. Beware of what we call “The Baggage Mystery.” To avoid unnecessarily high baggage fees, make sure you know what the limits are for your chosen domestic airline (it’s often NOT the same as your international flight and their rates are astronomical). If you have excess baggage, it may make sense to have Moriah staff members take a train to meet you at your international airport and port your items back to Guntur.

Air India

Checked: 25 kilos per passenger total.
Carry on: 8 kg max.

Note: If you are on a prop plane, you may unknowingly be reduced to 15 kilos for checked baggage. Do your due diligence to know what type of flight to avoid paying hundreds of extra dollars on domestic connecting flights.
