We’ve partnered with India’s largest airline IndiGo for service to 14 destinations in India. When you fly with American on IndiGo, you can earn miles and enjoy more benefits.

Your bag tags should show your final destination in India. However, once you arrive in Delhi:

  • You must retrieve your bags after clearing Immigrations and then clear Customs.
  • Take your bags to the IndiGo check-in counter in the departure terminal for your next flight.
