Brand USA has partnered with Air New Zealand on the MegaFam for a second time to promote the diversity of the US for travellers as well as the ease of getting there with the airline.
To secure a spot, travel agents were asked to sell Economy, Premium Economy or Business PremierTM return Air New Zealand flights to the USA during the campaign incentive period which ran from 8 June to 15 July 2018.
Matt Fletcher, Brand USA Director Australia and New Zealand said he was excited to announce our 30 Australian travel agents plus reveal the six unique USA music-themed itineraries which they will experience.
“Between the groups, we’re covering many regions of the U.S., with landscapes and itinerary activities varying greatly, allowing agents to really see how diverse and special the country is.”
