NYC & Company, in partnership with Air Canada, recently hosted four product managers from Venture Holidays, Qantas Holidays, STA Travel, The Travel Corporation and a representative from Air Canada, as part of its trade educational program, from 11 to 16 October.
The itinerary was designed to provide a New York City update featuring new attractions, tours and hotels, which have populated the city’s landscape over the past 12 months.
New Trade Manager at NYC & Company, Kristin Hellmrich said, “Air Canada was the ideal partner as the airline has recently opened a new route to New York City via Vancouver complimenting the ‘new’ New York theming. It’s an exciting time to visit the city,” she said.
Air Canada’s daily non-stop B777-200 flights from Sydney to Vancouver seamlessly connect with its direct flights to Newark Liberty International Airport, providing travellers with a comfortable and efficient way to reach New York. In addition, the airline operates to LaGuardia Airport and John F. Kennedy International Airport from its global hub at Toronto Pearson International Airport.
“One of the many advantages of flying with Air Canada is that our passengers can effortlessly clear US Customs in Vancouver or Toronto, ensuring a hassle-free start to an unforgettable holiday,” says Air Canada General Manager Australia and New Zealand Paul McLean.
The group experienced the newly opened Whitney Museum of American Art, enjoyed Finding Neverland on Broadway and took a behind the scenes tour of Disney on Broadway with Walks of New York, which also guided the group through the 911 Museum and Memorial and up to the new One World Observatory.
The Product Managers were hosted at the recently refurbished Loew’s Regency and the Roosevelt Hotel and were able to explore the newly opened New York EDITION hotel.
