Birmingham Airport has announced that it is to hold another ‘Airport Guru Airline Extravaganza’ following the success of the inaugural event last year.
The Extravaganza will be held at the Hilton Metropole (NEC) on September 7 between 18:30 – 21:30, offering an educational and networking opportunity for travel agents, where they can meet airline senior representatives and learn about the various products available from Birmingham.
32 airlines have been confirmed, including Emirates, United Airlines, Icelandair, Norwegian, Vueling, Flybe, Turkish Airlines, Iberia Express, Thomas Cook, Thomson, Aegean Airlines, Monarch Airlines, Qatar Airways, American Airlines, Ryanair, easyJet, Blue Air, Czech Airlines, Air India, Pakistan International Airlines, Aer Lingus, Jet2.com and SAS.
Mandy Haque, the airport’s trade relations manager, said: “We’re very excited about this year’s event, which is free to attend and open to any travel agent that wants to understand more about the growing number of airlines operating from Birmingham.
“As our airline and route network continues to grow, we need to ensure that our travel partners are equipped with as much knowledge as possible so that they can pass this on to customers, and we’ve found that this type of event is a dynamic way to engage with the trade and strengthen relationships.” All airlines will be providing prizes which agents have a chance of winning by visiting all the airline stands and filling up the event ‘passports’, given to all guests on arrival. Food and beverages will also be provided.
