Current bookings to New Zealand withstand earthquake

MALAYSIAN outbound travel agents have not received any requests to postpone travel to New Zealand for the upcoming March holidays but impact on new bookings remains to be seen.

Malaysian Harmony Tours & Travel CEO, Cooper Huang, said some adjustments would be made to itineraries to avoid areas affected by the earthquake that rocked Christchurch on Tuesday.

He, however, did not expect any cancellations for the school vacation, which is more than two weeks away.

Mayflower Acme Tours deputy general manager Abdul Rahman Mohamed said it was still too early to tell whether clients wanted to pull out. New bookings were likely to be affected though, he added.

Sri Sutra Travel managing director Syed Razif Al Yahya said his company had temporarily stopped selling New Zealand tours to reduce risks.
