Starting in mid December, Air New Zealand will introduce nonstop service between Houston and Auckland. Tourism New Zealand is actively promoting the destination to wholesalers and travel agents throughout Texas, and I was very fortunate to join the Tourism New Zealand team in promoting this amazing destination. We participated in a TNZ Update in Los Angeles before meeting with travel wholesalers from around the USA. There was an evening event with retail travel agents.
We then traveled throughout Texas (Dallas, Austin, San Antonio and Houston) to meet with travel agents to discuss the exciting opportunities available for their clients who are interested in visiting New Zealand. I was so proud to present Edgewater Resort in Wanaka as an off-the-beaten-path destination offering a true taste of New Zealand – the quintessential Kiwi village.
A great big thanks to the hundreds of travel agents who visited with us, and we hope to speak with you all very soon.
