Baku, April 8 (AZERTAC). Aiming to take ahead the mission of promoting the tourism services of Hungary in Azerbaijan, the former made its debut participation in AITF 2013.
Hungarian Tourism JSC is a national corporation, whose main objective is to promote the tourism potential of the country abroad. From 1 January this year the mission of promoting the tourism services of Hungary in Azerbaijan, Kazakhstan, Uzbekistan and Belarus was assigned to the Moscow office of the corporation.
Four tour operators, one hotel chain, two hotels and Wizz Air are represented in Hungary’s stand. In order to introduce Hungary to the citizens of Azerbaijan, and to find collaboration with local tour operators, Hungary is presenting four of the major tourist attractions at AITF 2013. These include the capital of the country, Budapest; the recreational facilities of one of the largest lakes in Europe, Lake Balaton; the opportunities for meetings, incentives, conferences, and exhibitions (MICE); and medical and health tourism in Hungary.
“I would like to inform you that twice-weekly direct flights between Budapest and Baku are planned to be implemented this summer. If this project is realized, excellent opportunities for an active interchange of tourists between our countries will be created. The Hungarian Ambassador to Azerbaijan, Mr Zsolt Csutora, visited our stand and promised the full assistance of the Hungarian Embassy in the issuing of visas to the citizens of Azerbaijan,” said Mikhai Aranoshshi, Advisor on tourism (Hungary).
“We are very satisfied with the pace of exhibition. There is great interest shown in our country. All members of the national stand have held important talks and signed contracts with local companies. AITF 2013 was the starting point for us to expand cooperation with Azerbaijan. All the companies on our stand have already expressed their desire to take part in the exhibition next year. I think that Hungary’s presence at AITF 2014 will be on a larger scale,” he added.
