“TravelWithPATA.com” Website Launched
The Pacific Asia Travel Association (PATA) has launched TravelWithPATA.com (www.travelwithpata.com), a one-stop consumer website offering travelers credible region-wide information on travel in Asia Pacific. The site features travel news, explanations and samples of travel advisories, airline and hotel offers, weather information, maps and currency exchange guides. Global media campaigns will drive thousands of visitors to the site over the next few months, said PATA President and CEO, Mr. Peter de Jong. “Consumers will come back to TravelWithPATA because we will be the only site providing a balanced region-wide perspective. We aim for TravelWithPATA to become the first place travellers will go to when they need authoritative and insightful information about travel in Asia Pacific,” he said. PATA Japan Chapter’s own new website, which will feature information about chapter members, giving them a chance to promote their own activities and special deals, will be launched early next month and will feature a link to TravelWithPATA.com.
