Default Migrant fares and extra baggage

Just wondering if anyone is aware if Emirates do special migrant fares with extra baggage?

I really doubt it, I suspect most people travel on an ordinary flight at normal price and pay extra for excess baggage.

Emirates and Cathay Pacific have a 30 kg allowance as standard.

Lots of airlines did until a few years ago. Singapore still offer it for Australia on certain visas - not sure how their routes work for NZ, but migh tbe worth a look .

Opening an account with anz got us 40kg, although only my husband used it cause I didn't travel directly. Check their website as I don't know if they still do it or not

please make sure you check that all the airlines you fly over with will take the baggage size that the others agree to.

I know Qantas give you extra baggage allowance. The link here:
Migrant Fares from the UK | Qantas implies it's just for ANZ customers, but it's worth asking if you're not; we weren't.

Never heard of migrant fares,

Contact the airlines direct for migrant allowances
