Salut tout le monde,
This is a short informational post for international students. As you would be carrying a lot of luggage, don’t forget to insist on getting extra baggage allowance or any other students specific schemes with you carrier. I, along with two other friends, have booked my ticket through Qatar Airways and they are providing us with 40kg allowance, as opposed to just 23kg for regular passengers.
Some carriers may not provide extra baggage, but compensate by giving discounts on the airfare or discounts on extra baggage charges and some may not have any offers at all. The carriers generally ask for a scanned copy of your “Offer letter from the School” to provide you with a student offer.
PS: I’d recommend that you choose an airlines which provides some student scheme, preferably for extra baggage.
