While in case of extra leg room requirement, seats with extra leg room cost INR 600 per seat.

To solve this issue, this airline has on offer its pre-book extra baggage programme, under which travellers can take up to 15 kg extra besides the standard 15 kg. Extra means extra charges, and the airline has set a fixed fee for each kilogram. Up to 3 kg, the fee is INR 500; up to 5 kg, it is INR 750; up to 10 kg, it is INR 1500 and up to 15 kg, it is INR 2000.
With such brilliant passenger convenience programmes, the airline is able to sell a lot of flight tickets, quarter-on-quarter. Currently, this LCC in terms of market share in the domestic sector lies at the fifth position. It has completed 5 years of operations on domestic routes and is now planning to go operate internationally. However, for that it needs to complete one for more requisite set down by the civil aviation ministry of the Indian government, and that is a minimum of 20 aircraft in the fleet. With the delivery of 72 Airbus A320neos by April 2016, the airline is all set to meet this requisite.
