Aussies can Choose Chicago
A MARKETING event for Choose Chicago was held in Syd last night to talk up Air NZ’s recently launched Auckland to Chicago (ORD) route and to promote the many attractions the windy city can offer Aussie travellers.
Choose Chicago’s local representative Canuckiwi spearheaded the gathering, providing agents with a briefing on Chicago’s best selling points.
“The closest comparison for Chicago is New York, there is a volume amount of traffic that comes here and gets almost as many international visitors with over 50 million,“Canuckiwi founder Corey Marshall said.
Marshall congratulated Air NZ on launching the new route, one he said he believed would lead to some good Aussie take up.
“It’s always good to be first...Air NZ has come to the table for us in Chicago and we are thrilled, for the Aussie market they have to go to Auckland which is fine because they are still travelling in the eastbound direction,” Marshall said.
