Aitken Spence Travels welcomes Bulgarian flight for 2023 to MRIA

Aitken Spence Travels (AST) welcomed a charter flight from Bulgaria to Mattala Rajapaksa International Airport (MRIA) with 200 holiday makers yesterday.

The visitors from Bulgaria will be discovering Sri Lanka with excursions and their accommodation choices vary between 4 and 5 star properties along with boutique properties. One of the leading tour operators in Bulgaria has partnered with AST for this charter flight operation. The agent was privy to presentations made during sales calls last year by the AST team and with persuasion and convincing resulted in this charter flight operation becoming a reality.

Furthermore, the agent gained confidence after the successful charter operation from Uzbekistan and other countries handled by the company. Commenting on the same, the tour operator stated, “This is our inaugural flight to Sri Lanka, and we are looking forward to promoting Sri Lanka at a larger scale. We are confident that our guests will enjoy your beautiful country, and everything will be handled well.”

The company has been successful in winning the trust of agents from new source markets and will continue to make investments in agent education by offering familiarization tours to agents to get a better understanding of the destination and will be helping them with destination promotions.
