Aussies can Choose Chicago

Travel Daily - - News -

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.

Pic­tured frol­ick­ing Chicago-style are: Corey Mar­shall, Canuckiwi; Sha­ree Burgess, Air NZ; Krys­tal Nejm, Air NZ and Matt Fletcher, Brand USA.
