 « 16-02-2010 »TURKS AND CAICOS OFF TO A FLYING START IN TEXAS WITH NEW NON-STOP FLIGHT

Last week the Turks and Caicos Hotel and Tourism Association (TCHTA) returned from a successful sales calls blitz to Texas, to promote travel to the Turks and Caicos Islands. The trip was held to coincide with the return of the American Airlines’ direct flight from the Dallas gateway which recommenced on Saturday, February 13th. 

Texas native Karen Whitt President of the TCHTA and General Manager of The Somerset Resort commended American Airlines for its loyalty to increase its flights options into the Turks and Caicos noting that, “American Airlines’ commitment to the islands reflects the Turks and Caicos Islands development as an outstanding Caribbean destination of choice. We are excited about welcoming Texans to our destination and are confident that the new route will boost tourism for 2010 and beyond”.

The TCHTA saw over thirty-five qualified Caribbean producing travel agencies both in the Houston and Dallas areas. The sales calls included presentations on the destination and the participating hotels from the Turks and Caicos included; Grace Bay Resorts, The Regent Palms, The Somerset, Royal West Indies, Gansevoort, Ocean Club Resorts, Seven Stars, The Sands as well as the TCI Tourist Board.

Caesar Campbell, CEO of the TCHTA remarked on the encouraging feedback the team received from the agents during the trip, “Without a doubt, all of the travel agents that we met with were thoroughly excited about the non-stop Dallas flight which is now operating every Saturday. It was clear that our visit made a positive impact on the travel partners who were very appreciative of the update on the tourism and hotel product offerings in the TCI we presented”
