A group of six travel agents and a representative each from Air Austral and Atout France set off on a week-long discovery tour of the intensely surprising Reunion Island in mid-October. The selection of agents included a mix of tour operators and boutique travel companies from Mumbai and Chennai. The delegation was able to experience the diverse touristic offering of the island that included a combination of adventure activities, glimpses of local culture and cuisine.
From helicopter visits to paragliding and descending into lava tunnels and kayaking, the agents experienced adventure across land, water and the sea. In addition, the itinerary also included interactions with key incoming agencies thus paving the way forward for better synergies.
Sharing her thoughts, Sheetal Munshaw, Director, Atout France India said, “Our collaboration with Reunion Island since October 2018 has been a mutually beneficial one. This familiarisation tour is a great means for the agents to discover firsthand the island. We are confident that this will give the agents a boost in their showcase of the island.”
