Virgin Australia to offer 64kg baggage allowance for filmmakers through SPA partnership

Screen Producers Australia (SPA) has announced they are now partnering with airline Virgin Australia in order to create a new offers and opportunities for Associate Members, now allowing a whopping 64kg of checked baggage per member, when traveling domestically within Australia.

This partnership hopes to address the ongoing issues that crew members and productions alike face while travelling with film equipment, also allowing for a more cost effective way to transport such equipment.

This New Film Industry Baggage Allowance will permit SPA associate members to travel with said extra luggage in addition to their usual and personal luggage.

It’s definitely great to see airlines such as Virgin Australia tackling an issue relatively unmentioned within the many issues of film production. We can only hope that other airlines are not far behind. For more information and terms and conditions, you can click here.
