To celebrate the upcoming launch of Air Vanuatu’s direct Melbourne to Port Vila flights, The Vanuatu Tourism Office (VTO) and Air Vanuatu, joined by 11 hoteliers and tour operators, recently visited 66 travel agencies throughout suburban Adelaide and Melbourne.

The three day tour also included a wholesaler soirée and two interactive agent events, where guests were treated to Tanna Coffee espresso martinis on arrival, before a hotly-contested game of trivia. One lucky agent in each city walked away with a fantastic trip to Vanuatu, including flights and accommodation.

“These face-to-face introductions are an essential platform for showcasing Vanuatu’s latest and greatest product offering, while increasing agents’ destination knowledge. It was also great to see such enthusiasm out of both the Adelaide and Melbourne markets ahead of the Melbourne flight launch in June,” said Allan Kalfabun, Marketing Manager, The Vanuatu Tourism Office.

Air Vanuatu, Vanuatu’s national carrier, will commence its new non-stop service between Melbourne and Port Vila on 18 June 2019, expanding the airline’s offering in Australia and providing greater access to Vanuatu.
