KLM and Vistara interline baggage check through

I have a KLM flight from Bali to Singapore that lands at 11:15PM and then a Vistara flight from Singapore to Mumbai that takes off at 10:30AM, so a little less that 12 hours. Separate PNRs.

Does anyone know if KLM has has an interline agree with Vistara and if they would check my bag through to Mumbai? If they do I can stay at a transit hotel in the airport. Otherwise I have to clear immigration, gets bags go to a hotel across the street, just so I can walk back into the airport and recheckin bags!

There is no interline agreement with Vistara; but even if there was, KLM would not check your bag through on a different ticket. On KLM, your bag will only be checked through when all travel is on a single ticket.

If Vistaria allows early check in, you could get your bags and directly re-check them. Then go back airside and use the transit hotel. Assuming that's the target for easy departure in the morning

However, if you cannot check in and get your boarding pass, you would be stuck landside until check in for your flight opens in the morning.

You could stay at the Crown Plaza connected to T3 landside
