China’s Xiamen Airlines hires Aviareps in India


Southeast China’s Fujian based Xiamen Airlines has appointed Aviareps as its first General Sales & Service Agent (GSSA) in India. Mumbai based Aviareps will be responsible for “maximising exposure, penetrating new markets and promoting Xiamen Airlines as a favourable airline for Indian travellers”.

“We are looking forward to foray into this new and emerging market with extensive outbound travel potential,” said Hu Bin, Xiamen Airline’ general manager of passenger marketing & sales. “For Xiamen Airlines, this is a strategic, long-term investment. By collaborating with Aviareps India, a professional airline GSSA with extensive knowledge of the Indian market and the aviation industry, we are sure to reach our goals.”

Xiamen Airlines doesn’t currently fly to India but plans to do so and is in the process of undertaking an international expansion plan.

“India is currently witnessing a massive boost in both business and leisure traffic to China. Given the agent friendly policies of the airline… and strong network level of service that Xiamen Airlines offers, we expect a very positive response for Xiamen Airlines from the Indian market,” said Joseph Fernandes, Aviareps’ general manager for India.
