Air New Zealand Vacations Takes Off With VAX

In order to reach out to its many potential travel agent partners on VAX VacationAccess, Air New ZealandVacations has announced a month-long spotlight within VAX, as well as a VAX-only FAM tour of New Zealand later this year.

“As Air New Zealand focuses on helping travel agents become experts on selling South Pacific vacations, it makes perfect sense for us to utilize the largest community of travel agents on one platform,” says Roger Poulton, v.p., Air New Zealand-the Americas. “We look forward to building our relationship with VAX VacationAccess travel agents and continuing to explore new and creative ways to appeal to their customers.”

Air New Zealand Vacations plans to expand its content for travel agents and provide promotional offers as part of VAX VacationAccess’ National Plan a Vacation Week event, and will also host a FAM tour for select VAX travel agents in May. The focus for VAX travel agents will be activities and sightseeing, as well as Air New Zealand’s new in-flight product. Those interested in participating should apply for the FAM tour

“Following the earthquake that heavily damaged Christchurch City and Lyttelton in February, it is important for Americans to know that New Zealand is fully operational in all other cities,” says Becky Capper, director of vendor and partner development for VAX VacationAccess. “Travel agents should feel comfortable in assuring travelers that New Zealand is more than safe and accessible.”
