This means the tour company which began in 1994 has smashed through it’s 24 year record, in terms of revenue, profit and passenger numbers.

Group CEO Joe Karbo said the result was a testament to the fantastic work of that the Australian team have done to produce, manage and drive the first two quarterly campaigns in 2018, Fly Free and Mega Asia Sale.

“Over the next few weeks we’ll start shifting gear to the last two quarterly campaigns, which will drive departures for 2019,” Karbo said.

The Australian office has seen huge growth year on year in particular for China at 18%, and Japan at 56%.

Their most popular China tour this year, the Majestic Yangtze, has seen a huge growth of over 50% on the full year 2017 numbers, as at 1 June.
