ITB ASIA 19 to 21 October 2016

The audacious and inimitable Travelling Gourmet TM visits…

MEGA Travel Trade Exhibition  ITB ASIA in Marina Bay Sands, and interviews Shawn Pun of Qatar Airways who explained, “We have more than 150 destinations and adding more like Helsinki, Pisa and Marrakech and more…” Qatar Airways like Emirates, has an international crew and pilots of many nationalities. Qatar has been in operation for close to 20 years. To keep in tune with today’s high tech internet society, passengers on board enjoy complimentary Wi-Fi for the first 15 minutes of their journey. To remain connected for the duration of the flight, convenient packages start from US$5! Those flying First Class enjoy complimentary Wi-Fi for the full duration of their flight. On Business Class you can order whatever meals you like throughout the flight up to 90 minutes before arrival at the destination.

Other countries exhibiting here include Iceland, Finland, Germany, Austria, Indonesia and more! I was impressed with the Germany, Berlin and Salzburg exhibitors who showed knowledge and much passion for their products. The Spain Tourism and Catalunya Exhibitors were also very helpful and informative.

Until the next time, this is The Travelling Gourmet TM saying: Keep calm and carry on Travelling! Life is too short for bad food, horrible wines and unpleasant experiences. Never settle for less than the best! You owe it to yourself n’est pas!
