Travel agents hopeful for tourism direction

Published on : Thursday, April 25, 2019

On Tuesday, the Association of Cyprus Travel Agents (Acta) welcomed the measures taken to boost up tourism through developing new deputy ministry, and plans to increase air connectivity to the island.

 

“The optimistic messages and the significant strategic development for the promotion of the tourist product of Cyprus made by the deputy ministry so far can only be the beginning of better years to come,” Acta president Vasilis Stamataris said, declaring the dates for this year’s travel fair Taxidi 2019 in Nicosia.

 

Also, Stamataris welcomed the effort of the transport ministry on endorsing aviation connectivity issues. In a meeting Acta had with minister Vassiliki Anastasiadou, Stamataris explained that he conveyed the association’s call for intensified efforts to increase air connectivity to Cyprus “which will lead to increased competition and, consequently, to the reduction of fares.”

 

Also, the Acta president made reference to the significance of the travel agent, disputing that they are now becoming more necessary than ever.

 

One of the prime reasons why travelers are better off with a travel agency, he said, was that they protect travelers from different scams and any travel problems they might experience.

 

“The choice of the travel agent has additional benefits that reflect the pocket, psychology and, of course, the experiences of each traveler,” he said.

 

He cited examples like the closure of Cobalt air carrier and the recent attacks in Sri Lanka. The travel agent always protects the traveler, he added.

 

While speaking about the Taxidi exhibition, which has been running for 22 years, Stamataris explained that it would provide information on destinations and travel packages, and would take place between May 3 and 5 at the grounds of the State Fair in Nicosia.

 

The Greek National Tourism Organisation (EOT) will be represented at the exhibition along with Greek islands and municipalities, India, Poland, travel agents and airlines, tourist resorts and hotels, but also the Cyprus deputy ministry for tourism.

 

“The exhibition offers comprehensive information to travellers wishing to spend their holidays in Cyprus and abroad,” Stamataris said.
