Macao And Xiamen Airlines Begin Series of Agents Workshops

July 7, 2017 Tourist Boards No Comments Email Email

The first of a series of retail agent workshops has been held in Sydney this week in Macao’s quest to spread the news about its links with Xiamen Airlines and the launch of a new “One Fare – Two Cities” product.

The initial workshop-banquet dinner was held in Parramatta on Wednesday evening (July 5), in Sydney’s western heartland, attracting more than 40 local agents.

In-depth presentations were made by the Macao Government Tourism Office’s marketing manager Benjamin Zaubzer and Xiamen Airlines sales manager Alex Ding, outlining all the latest news.

With return air fares to Macao beginning from as little as $768 per person from Sydney or Melbourne, the “One Fare – Two Cities” campaign offers an alternative route to the traditional Hong Kong flight path with travellers having the chance to visit and explore the beautiful Chinese coastal city of Xiamen en route to Macao.

It’s the first time the Chinese airline has teamed with the Macao Government Tourism Office (Australia) to offer a dedicated fare, the offer including a complimentary night’s stay in Xiamen (6-24hrs) along with free coach tour (4 -24hrs) of a city popular for its beaches and colonial past.

In addition, passengers would not require a China visa if spending up to 72 hours in Xiamen.

Macao is visa free for Australian passport holders staying no more than 30 days.

The new Xiamen Airlines product will allow Australians to fly from Sydney and Melbourne to Xiamen for a night’s stopover before boarding the connecting short-haul flight to Macao International Airport.

Both MGTO and Xiamen Airlines will continue to host further travel industry workshops in Sydney over the next two months to coincide with giant shopping centre exhibitions for consumers. Those expos will be highlighted by the exclusive 360-degree (virtual reality) showings of Macao and the airline, beginning with a four-day event at Parramatta Westfield on July 6-9, 2017.

Further shopping centre events will be staged at Castle Towers, Castle Hill from July 20-23, Chatswood Chase from August 3-6 and Eastgardens Westfield from August 17-20.

Travel industry workshops will also take place in Melbourne.

  • The Xiamen Airlines $768 fare to Macao applies to tickets booked before October 30, 2017.
