Top agents from Kuwait visit Sri Lanka on familiarization tour
11 of Kuwait’s top tour operators and travel agents arrived in Sri Lanka this week on Jazeera Airways on a familiarisation tour.
Jazeera Airways currently operates three flights weekly to Sri Lanka connecting the leisure and labour markets. The familiarization tour was organized and sponsored by Jazeera’s General Sales Agent in Sri Lanka, Aitken Spence PLC.
The familiarization group travelled and enjoyed the highlights of Sri Lanka during their stay in Sri Lanka. Commenting on the tour, Travel agent P. Mayur stated: “We love the Sri Lankan people’s smile, hospitality and their humbleness. We heard lots of negative news prior to our arrival and were wondering if we were making the right decision.
“However, when we came into the country, our experiences were nothing negative. I am definitely coming back to this beautiful country to enjoy the beaches with my family, and it won’t be too long.”
Another member of the group, Sami Malik stated: “It’s amazing to see how Sri Lankans love and preserve their cultural values of the country. The rich history and heritage are something our clients would love to discover in Sri Lanka.”
The Jazeera airlines familiarization tour concluded with an awards ceremony recognizing the airlines top agents. The event was graced by Tourism and Land Minister Harin Fernando and State Minister of Foreign Affairs Tharaka Balasuriya.
Jazeera airlines has good connections in the Middle East region and can contribute to the revival of tourism in Sri Lanka by connecting the Middle East travellers to the country. The agent familiarisation tour is expected to contribute towards promoting destination Sri Lanka.
Jazeera now operates three flights per week from Kuwait to Colombo; however, the airline expects to raise its frequency of flights per week by early 2023. Jazeera Airways operates its best-in-class Airbus 320 Neo aircraft to Colombo, connecting more than 50 destinations across the continents.
