Garuda Indonesia is offering 150 top-producing Australasian travel agents the opportunity to experience the many "faces" of Indonesia via a mega-educational tour scheduled for November 2005.
A range of specially planned itineraries covering Bali, Yogyakarta, Surabaya and Lombok will be offered. The programmes will feature a multitude of educational options, showcasing familiar and lesser-known resort areas, attractions, tours and facilities.
Garuda Indonesia has pioneered mass educational tours for travel agents for years. In 2003, the airline initiated the very successful "Bali – Seeing is Believing" familiarization tour involving a number of wholesalers and air carriers working together. The 2003 trip was seen as instrumental in rebuilding the Australian travel industry's confidence in Bali.
In 2004, another mass educational tour - "Bali – the Key to Indonesia" highlighted Indonesia's many diverse tourism destinations.
According to organizers, participation in the "Faces of Indonesia" program will be performance based. Australian travel agents wishing to learn how to be part of this experience should contact their Garuda Indonesia Sales Executive or nearest Garuda Indonesia sales office.
