Delta VacationsR&C Tours (R&C) recently started to sell “Delta Vacations,” which is Delta Air Line’s package brand, planned for the first half of the fiscal year 2011. Focusing on the destinations served by Delta Air Lines (DL) from Japan, R&C has produced the package tour brochures featuring “America & Cancun,” “South America,” “Hawaii” and “Guam, Saipan & Palau.” There is also a pamphlet featuring exclusively “Disneyland.” Additionally released are “Canada and Alaska” departing after the “Golden Week” spring holiday and “Delta Vacations Casual” with an affordable tour price and a flexible tour itinerary, featuring two areas, “Guam, Saipan & Palau” and “Hawaii.”

All these Delta Vacations package tours are able to arrange a specific passenger seat such as a “window seat in the front” or a “seat near the lavatory” according to a passenger’s wish with no extra surcharge. A request for a specific flight number can be requested as well. A traveler can earn 100 percent flight miles and a member of SkyMile program can additionally earn bonus miles. The bonus mile is newly introduced also for its regular travelers. A choice of in-flight meals is possible also for Economy class passengers.

As part of its efforts to exploit Delta Air Line’s route network, R&C has set a tour course from and to Tokyo’s Haneda Airport, featuring the United States and Mexico’s Cancun. In order to put an emphasis on the airline’s passenger-convenience via Haneda Airport, R&C has decided to charge only additional 5,000 yen for a roundtrip when a customer makes a local connection from and to Sapporo, Osaka, Fukuoka and Okinawa’s Naha. Passengers traveling on BusinessElite class are provided with assistance service in Japanese both at transit stations and destinations.

R&C has a sales goal of 20,000 customers for the first half of fiscal year 2011, of whom 2,500 are destined for North America and Cancun, 4,000 for Hawaii, 13,000 for Guam and Saipan and 500 for Canada. R&C plans to sell the Delta Vacations with its primary target on the customer segment including Delta Air Lines’ customers, senior regular travelers, young top executives, businessmen, the SkyMile members and families.
