Qantas Holidays has teamed up with Costa Cruises to expand their Far East programme. The cruises can be perfectly combined with Qantas Holidays’ extensive range of pre and post cruise options making the operator the ultimate one stop shop for a Far East holiday. The new cruise itineraries showcase a wealth of destinations, highlighting the contrasting cultures and natural beauty of the Far East from the unspoilt white-sand beaches of Malaysia to the vibrant cities of Hong Kong and Singapore.
Commenting on the new cruise options, Qantas Holidays’ General Manager Nick Crabb said: "We are absolutely thrilled to be able to showcase Costa Cruises’ entire range of Asia options. Agents can now take advantage of Qantas Holidays’ expertise in the Far East as well as our flexible airfares, great land and touring products, rounded off with one of the wide range of Costa Cruises.
"Qantas Holidays is proud of its reputation for offering the largest choice of value for money holidays in Australia and New Zealand, and with this new initiative we are confident that it won’t be long before we are recognised in the same way for our holidays to Asia."
Meanwhile, Costa Cruises’ UK Managing Director, Marco Rosa commented. "The new partnership with Qantas Holidays allows us to further expand our presence within the Far East holiday market and enables us to extend our potential customer base.
"This strategy is very much in line with our Far East expansion program, with Costa Romantica joining Costa Classica for 2010 itineraries, providing an increase in cabin inventory. The Far East has been an incredibly successful market for us and with the increase in capacity with Costa Romantica and the new relationship with Qantas Holidays we look forward to even more success in the future."
