Air Canada Vacations and GVQ Canada have signed a major partnership to offer tourism professionals outside of Canada a complete and diversified range of vacation packages in Canada. Since Oct. 1, 2019, GVQ Canada has been the official and exclusive DMC agency for the marketing of travel packages in Canada under the Air Canada Vacations banner.
The new strategic alliance will provide travellers with better access to all Canadian provinces, with many packages being added to the range already offered by GVQ Canada for individuals or groups seeking organized tours or tailor-made travel experiences. The goal is to work together with various tourism professionals to offer attractive travel proposals that will satisfy clients wanting a more classic trip or those yearning to go off the beaten track.
As well, this will be an opportunity for GVQ Canada to introduce more foreign travellers to Canada and its charms and to develop strong and successful partnerships with hoteliers and other Canadian tourism players.
Laurent Plourde, president of GVQ Canada, said: “Our agreement with Air Canada Vacations is to provide receptive services for visitors to our country. We are therefore poised to bring even more tourist traffic into our regions. This is great news.”
Luigi Iannello, director, strategy and business development, Europe and Cruises for Air Canada Vacations, commented: “We are very excited about this partnership, which is still in its infancy. We are already working on bold technological tools, enriching familiarization trips and various promotional projects. Without a doubt, Air Canada Vacations’ reputation, combined with GVQ Canada’s experience in Canadian tourism, will result in unforgettable experiences that meet the highest quality standards in the industry.”
