QA targets Japan market
Qatar Airways is gearing up for the launch of its regular services to Japan with a promotional drive in Tokyo.
The airline is to take part in the Japanese Association of Travel Agents’ World Tourism Congress and Travel Fair (JATA WTF 2004) in Tokyo. Asia’s most important travel fair will take place from September 24 to 26.
“Qatar Airways has already announced plans to operate a regular service to Japan early next year, and it is imperative that we market our brand and services from an early stage,” said CEO Akbar Al Baker. “Participating in this important fair in Tokyo will give Qatar Airways the chance to promote its five-star services, extensive route network and our country Qatar to the Japanese public.” JATA WTF 2004 is widely recognised as Asia’s largest and leading travel market for the travel trade and consumers.
The fair attracts more than 100,000 visitors every year, including 30,000 trade and media representatives to its exhibition of more than 700 booths and stands. Qatar Airways will be taking its modern state-of-the-art 36sqm stand to the Tokyo International Exhibition Centre, locally called Tokyo Big Sight.
