EXOTISSIMO Travel Group has inked a contract to be the groundhandler for Adventure World’s Australia and New Zealand clients travelling to Myanmar, Vietnam, Cambodia, Laos, Thailand, Indonesia and Japan.
Exotissimo began Myanmar groundhandling duties for Adventure World in January, and extended the deal to the other destinations in June. The group is scheduled to assume duties in Vietnam, Cambodia and Laos from November 1, and in Thailand, Indonesia and Japan by year-end.
Exotissimo Travel Group CEO, Olivier Colomes, told TTG Asia e-Daily that he expected the new account to contribute around 7,000-8,000 travellers to Thailand, Vietnam, Indonesia, Myanmar, Cambodia, Laos and Japan in its first year.
“The figure is expected to triple within three years, in line with Adventure World’s expansion plans in South-east Asia,” he added.
Australia-based NRMA Tourism and Leisure consolidated its travel products offered through Value Tours, Coral Seas, and Creative Cruising under its Adventure World brand on July 1.
