Balitrip, a Destination Management Company (DMC), organised a roadshow in Mumbai yesterday to showcase the best of Bali’s hospitality industry to the travel trade. While speaking on the sidelines of the event to TravelBiz Monitor, Dheeraj Ranjan Kumarr, Founder Director, PT Balitrip Wisata, said that the aim of the sales mission is to create a bridge between the buyers and hospitality sector of Bali. “We are becoming a bridge between them,” said Kumarr.
Besides Mumbai, the roadshows are slated to be held in Ahmedabad, Pune and Delhi. When asked to comment why the focus is more on the Western region of India? “It is because the Western region contributes 60% of the total arrivals from India to Bali for our company. For others also, the Western region contributes more when it comes to visiting Bali,” replied Kumarr. He attributes this to flight connectivity. “The region has more flight connectivity when compared with the Southern part of India,” he said.
Kumarr also said that Ahmedabad alone has three flights from different airlines which connect to Bali. “Mumbai being the hub has many flights with different frequencies. That is why traffic is more from this region to Bali,” he pointed out.
