Four luxury-specialist travel agents from Sydney and Perth were recently hosted by NYC & Company and Singapore Airlines on a global luxury sales mission to New York City in January.
Travelling on Singapore Airlines non-stop flight between Singapore and New York (Newark) the agents enjoyed the comforts of the all-new A350-900ULR aircraft. They also experienced Business and Premium Economy Class on the world’s longest flight, enjoying the specially designed Wellness menu curated by chefs and nutritionists from Canyon Ranch.
While in New York City, the group experienced the new Warhol exhibition at The Whitney, a private tour of MoMA (Museum of Modern Art), the Sunrise Experience at the Empire State Building and had a first glimpse of the Hudson Yards development. Hotel site inspections included The Pierre, The Peninsula, 1 Hotel Central Park, Mandarin Oriental, Mr C Seaport, The Beekman and The Knickerbocker.
