Arik Air named official Africa Travel Association Congress carrier

Posted 25 April 2013 · Add Comment

Nigeria's Arik Air, West and Central Africa's largest airline, has been named as the official carrier for the Africa Travel Association (ATA) World Congress in Douala, Cameroon from October 16-21.

The ATA is the leading global trade association promoting travel and tourism to Africa and strengthening intra-Africa partnerships.

After discussions between the Cameroonian Minister of Tourism and Leisure, the local organising congress committee and ATA’s international board of directors, it was agreed to change the dates of the congress from next month to October.

“The key stakeholders decided that it would allow further time for the host country [Cameroon] to handle the logistics of the sizable event,” said Edward Bergman, ATA’s executive director. “Shifting the annual congress away from its historical date in May to October would also be a more convenient time on the travel industry calendar to host such an important industry event.”

Arik Air will be the official congress carrier and will offer discounted rates to Douala for delegates attending the congress.
