QANTAS offers Aussie musicians additional baggage allowances

The sense of Aussie pride doesn’t get much bigger than this.

QANTAS have announced their plan to give Australian musicians (who are also dedicated Qantas flyers) a free Additional Baggage Allowance when travelling domestically. According to the Australian Music Industry Network, artists will be allowed three pieces at 23 kilograms a piece for free.

That will make touring with a bunch of heavy equipment a whole lot easier on the pocket, right?

The offer starts April 13th for those travelling within Australia with QANTAS or QANTASlink domestic services with a QF flight number. Also, the tickets must be booked two or more business days before departure. The artists travelling must be a part of one of the following associations:

Association of Artist Managers

Australian Chamber Orchestra

Australian Independent Record Labels Association

Australasian Performing Right Association

Australian Mechanical Copyright Owners Society

Country Music Association of Australia

Folk Alliance

Live Performance Australia

Musicians Union of Australia

Opera Australia

AMIN member organisations the Queensland Music Network, Contemporary Music Services Tasmania, Music NSW, Music NT, Music Victoria and The Western Australian Music Industry Association

Nothing is free unless there’s a catch.
