Virgin Australia has announced a baggage deal for travelling bands who are fed up with the excess charges. The Australian Music Industry Network (AMIN) along with Virgin decided to address the ongoing problems they face.
Following discussions led by national body The Australian Music Industry Network (AMIN), Virgin Australia is offering the music industry a baggage allowance of 32kg (across three pieces of checked baggage) for individual artists – with an additional 32kg able to be purchased in advance for just $15.
This baggage allowance is available on Virgin Australia-owned and operated domestic services only and must be booked or pre-purchased at least 48 hours prior to departure. This offer applies to all new bookings and cannot be provided in retrospect, and Virgin Australia will not refund normal baggage charges already paid.
To be eligible for this special offer, Musicians must be financial or bona fide members of one of the following Australian Music Industry bodies:
– AMIN’s member organisations: Queensland Music Network; Contemporary Music Services Tasmania; Music NSW; Music NT; Music Victoria and The Western Australian Music Industry Association.
