Mercosur Tourism Promotion OfficeMercosur Tourism Promotion Office and Qantas Airways hosted a joint seminar on South America for travel agencies in Tokyo. Qantas explained that, since it serves from Sydney to three cities of South America, namely, Sao Paulo, Santiago, and Buenos Aires, people can travel on Qantas from Narita to South America via Sydney in the shortest traveling time including connecting time. The airline also reminded that its seat supply between Narita and Sydney had increased since July this year with an introduction of Boeing B747 and that travelers could check their baggage at Narita through to the destination.

Masahiro Ogino, regional general manager Japan of Qantas Airways, said, “South America will be a high-profile destination for hosting the Olympic Games and FIFA World Cup in the years to come. We can cater to versatile travel demand as we have a plenty of seat supply for the routes by way of Sydney. We would like to encourage you to sell more of Qantas.”

At the seminar, eight members who took part in the study tours organized by Mercosur Tourism Promotion Office in the past showed up and talked, in panel discussion style, about the sales points of the destinations while showing pictures. They gave suggestions and advice for tour making from the professional point of view.

Tourism Western Australia Tourism Western Australia (TWA)’s campaign “Wildflower Express 2010,” promoted jointly with Qantas Airways and Tourism Australia, is going successfully. Qantas Airways had earlier named its Narita-Perth flight “Wildflower Express” in a move to call travelers’ attention to 12,000 kinds of wild flower observed in Western Australia and increase visitors to the region.

Hideki Yoshizawa, trade marketing manager for Japan at TWA, says the bookings on specified tours in the campaign have increased over the past two years aided by heightened awareness on the part of Japanese travel agencies through TWA’s seminars and literature distribution. Tour courses have widened in number and variety from the one that stays solely in Perth to circular tours that visit the World Heritage Site Shark Bay and wineries at Margaret River. Some travel agencies are reportedly so enthusiastic as to display wildflowers at their store for sales promotion.

The campaign runs from June 1 to November 30 and the tours under promotion are those with departures from August 2 through November 29. Travelers who take one of those tours will get a gift set of wildflower postcards and plastic paper-holders with floral print on them. A photo contest, starting from this year, will be held at the campaign website.
