Ark Travels and United Travel Agents organised a training workshop for agents in Mumbai. It plans to take this workshop across India.
Ark Travels, a B2B travel agent in India for cruise and luxury resort vacations, recently organised a training workshop for travel agents in Mumbai. The event was organised in collaboration with United Travel Agents (UTA) and witnessed participation of over 100 travel agents. It also announced Singapore Airlines as its official airline partner for the second edition of its ‘The Big Bang Nautical Fiesta’ that involves charter cruises specially targeting corporate companies.
Kishan Biyani, Managing Director, Ark Travels, says, “Today, training has become immensely important as the industry is witnessing a tremendous demand and supply gap. Travel agents are aware about cruise tourism as a segment, but are unable to encash on such a booming travel niche. We, therefore, intend to start pan-India training workshops from June 1-5, 2017, and will touch cities Delhi, Chennai, Bengaluru, Ludhiana, Indore or Bhopal in Madhya Pradesh, and Jaipur.” Also delighted with the partnership, David Lim, GMIndia, Singapore Airlines, says, Travellers interested in cruise vacations can avail a value package, with special, Singapore Airlines fares from five Indian cities: Mumbai, New Delhi, Kolkata, Bengaluru and Ahmedabad, along with a complimentary stay in Singapore. Offering a seamless experience through air, ground and sea, we aim to provide a comprehensive itinerary.”
