Niche wholesaler travel&co is encouraging retail agents to look beyond the challenges posed by travel to the Solomon Islands and look at the opportunities – especially when it comes to the dive market.
Tourism Solomons CEO, Josefa ‘Jo’ Tuamoto has paid tribute to a team of Institute of Tourism & Hospitality lecturers and students in attendance at last week’s ‘Mi Save Solo’ tourism exchange, describing their efforts as delivering a true showcase for what the future holds in store for the Solomon Islands tourism industry.
Solomon Airlines is seriously looking at making Honiara and beyond more accessible for New Zealanders, initially through new codeshare agreements and partnerships says the airlines manager commercial, Colin Sigimanu.
It is time for travel agents to embrace the opportunities offered by the Pacific Islands’ smaller, harder to reach destinations as travellers increasingly look for something different and relatively untouched, say exhibitors at a travel exchange in Honiara last week.
The Solomon Islands’ second Me Save Solo is being held in Honiara today, with an increased international buyer attendance on last year’s event and participation of other small island states as sellers.
A major step forward for the future promotion and development of the Solomon Islands dive tourism sector, the destination’s main dive operators have agreed to combine resources to create a formal representative body - Dive Operators Solomon Islands (DOSI).
