Com­ment­ing on the as­pect of ed­u­cat­ing those sell­ing Cyprus, Sarkari, who also hosted the trip on be­half of Gulf Air, added, “We re­cently con­ducted a fam trip to Cyprus for a group of travel agents across In­dia.

By boost­ing con­nec­tiv­ity to Cyprus from In­dia, we want to po­si­tion Cyprus as a stand­alone des­ti­na­tion for the In­dian out­bound trav­eller. The travel agents from Mum­bai, Delhi, Ben­galuru, Chen­nai and Kochi got first-hand ex­po­sure to the var­i­ous ac­tiv­i­ties that Cyprus has to of­fer.” The itin­er­ary con­sisted of visit to Ni­cosia, Kakope­tria vil­lage, Troo­dos moun­tains, Omo­dos vil­lage, Pafos, Li­mas­sol, Lar­naca and Ayia Napa.
