The largest international travel operator in the country – Aitken Spence Travels recently hosted Travel Sensation, the renowned tour operator based in Belgium.
The familiarisation tour was planned and facilitated with the primary objective of promoting Sri Lanka as a safe, sound destination for tourists.
The visit is the most recent in a series of such familiarisation visits hosted by Aitken Spence in a bid to contribute towards the promotion of tourism in the country.
The visit is an ideal opportunity for agents to experience the world-class standards of hospitality offered in Sri Lanka, especially when considering high-end boutique hotels and villas around the country. The delegation is also able to explore the magnificent views of the island’s natural features and rich heritage through the educational visit.
Subsequent to the tour of Sri Lanka, the agents will experience the luxurious indulgence of the Adaaran Hotels in the Maldives counted in the Aitken Spence property portfolio.
“We are delighted to have had this opportunity. The tour is sure to open up new horizons and to strengthen future business operations between us and Aitken Spence,” Travel Sensation Director Laurent Mandiaux was quoted saying.
“It’s been a great privilege to have had the opportunity to host some of the top-tier international tour operators in Sri Lanka. We are confident that the promised results will materialise in the form of increased arrivals to the country. Last year we recorded the highest ever volume of inbound arrivals achieved by any tour operator in the country and this year we are making all attempts to grow the number even more. This challenge of enticing more arrivals to the country is something that Aitken Spence Travels has continued to undertake on behalf of destination Sri Lanka. This familiarisation visit is intended to contribute in the same regard,” stated Aitken Spence Travels Managing Director Nalin Jayasundera.
