Anex Tour GmbH is a new German package tour operator, based in Düsseldorf, which will be starting operations with its own airline – AZUR Air – as of April 2017. We asked Managing Director Hakan Bakar, to tell us a little bit about the background to the company.
Our Dutch holding company has been successful in the tourism industry in Russia, Kazakhstan, Ukraine, Czech Republic and Slovakia for 20 years and is finally coming to Germany with this experience. Our aim is that our guests get all services from one single source – starting with their flight until the support at the destination. With our experience and excellent contacts in many dest inat ions, we have established a very good reputation as a reliable business partner. For this, we work with well know hotel chains as Bahia Principe, Barceló Hotels & Resorts, Iberostar, Lopesan and Sheraton. What are your key aims at ITB Berlin this year? The ITB 2017 will be the perfect platform to present our new company and our great portfolio, including the announcement of our new winter destinations. We will meet business partner from around the world, but even more important is to present our to travel agents. Of course we have also the first opportunity to present ourselves to our potential clients which should plan their holidays with Anex Tour.
What are your key differentiating factors?
The most important USP is that our guests will receive all services from a single source – starting with the flight with our own airline through the transfers to the hotel and the airport to the on-site support by our own tour guides. Apart from this, we are 100 % in favour of travel agency sales because we strongly believe in that sales channel, which includes advice and service.
