The Exclusive Travel Group has signed an agreement of co-operation with Qantas to assist with promoting luxury travel to the HNW sector of the GCC region outbound to New Zealand, Australia and the South Pacific. The agreement comes four months after The Exclusive Travel Group expanded to the GCC.
Qantas, with new partner Emirates, offers more flights to New Zealand than any other GCC carrier. Qantas and Emirates offer an extensive network of international and domestic flights both to and within the Australasian region, and operate more than 130 services per week from Auckland, Christchurch, Wellington and Queenstown to Australian east coast cities from more than 65 destinations in the Middle East, North Africa and Europe.
Commenting on Australia’s national carrier’s new agreement, Qantas Regional General Manager Middle East & North Africa Rohan Garnett said: “Luxury travel is a growing sector in the GCC and our agreement with The Exclusive Travel Group is testament to this. On board our flights, travellers can experience luxury from the word go with our award winning First and Business offerings which include menus designed by Qantas Consulting Chef Neil Perry, fully-flat Skybeds and designer amenity kits.”
The Exclusive Travel Group is an inbound destination-management company designing bespoke and personalised travel experiences to New Zealand, Australia and the South Pacific. Headquartered in New Zealand with an office in Australia and sales representatives in the GCC, Russia, UK and North America, The Exclusive Travel Group crafts ultra-luxury travel experiences across three categories – leisure, corporate and VIP, offering a collection of experiences to suit every taste. From simple to sophisticated, understated to indulgent, or relaxing to thrill-seeking, The Exclusive Travel Group’s itineraries are as individual as the travellers who book them.
Rob Young, Founder & Managing Director of The Exclusive Travel Group, said: “New Zealand, Australia and the South Pacific remain unchartered territories for many discerning travellers from the GCC. Together with Qantas, and its extensive route path, we look forward to introducing visitors from the region to a new class of luxury travel.”
