NEW YORK The Martinique Promotion Bureau is reaffirming its commitment to U.S. travel agents this fall by hosting a series of fun and educational trade-focused initiatives designed to help agents boost leisure travel sales to The Isle of Flowers.

Travel Agents“Even with all the various direct booking avenues available these days, it is our dear travel agent partners who continue to make the difference for Martinique,” said Muriel Wiltord, Director Americas for the Martinique Promotion Bureau. “With Norwegian Air poised to make Martinique more accessible and affordable to U.S. travelers once more this winter, we’re stepping up our efforts to ensure that travel agents have all the information and resources they need to sell effectively in the months to come.”

Travel Agents Road Shows

Norwegian Air will resume nonstop service to Martinique from three major gateways in the Northeast United States – New York (JFK), Boston (BOS), and Baltimore/Washington, DC (BWI) – beginning November 10, 2016.

For the latest on Norwegian’s flights and all that’s new for travelers to explore in Martinique, the Martinique Promotion Bureau invites travel agents in the Greater New York area and New England to participate in a new series of road shows, November 15–17.

·       November 16 – Garden City, Long Island

·       November 16 – Cherry Hill, New Jersey

·       November 17 – Burlington, Massachusetts

About 10 suppliers representing Martinique’s dynamic hotel product, attractions, and airline partners will be on-hand to provide travel agents with the type of in-depth information that translates into sales.
