The AOT Group says Bula to BFTE

28th of May, 2012

The AOT Group has renewed its commitment to suppliers in the South Pacific by attending the 2012 Bula Fiji Tourism Exchange (BFTE). The three-day annual event which was held in Fiji from the 15th of May showcases the tourism offerings in Fiji and its neighbouring Pacific Islands; Cook Islands, Tonga, Samoa, Vanuatu and New Caledonia and more.

General Manager of AOT NZ & Pacific Islands Stephen Marshall said that the AOT Group's presence at the BFTE was twofold, both exhibiting as an Inbound Tour Operator, and attending as a buyer.

"The South Pacific is consistently voted as one of the world's most romantic destinations, and the honeymoon market from Western Australia, Asia and emerging European markets is very strong and on the rise.

"AOT Group is committed to the Pacific Islands and are always looking to strengthen our presence in the region. BFTE was a great opportunity to showcase the wide range of products and services AOT has in the Pacific Islands to our international wholesale partners.  

"BFTE is also a great opportunity meet with local suppliers who we can add to our growing portfolio, which now includes Air New Zealand Holidays, as part of a joint venture between AOT Group and Air New Zealand," Mr Marshall said.
