Tourism update: How is New Zealand going with our travel bubbles?

Posted on 27/05/2021 by

It’s been over a month since the Australian bubble, so how is it going?

Thanks to our successful management of the virus, and that of our neighbours across the Tasman, we’ve been able to create one of the first quarantine-free travel bubbles in the world.

It has now been a little over a month since New Zealand’s travel bubble with Australia opened, and a week since the beginning of the bubble with the Cook Islands.

So how is it going? And what does it all mean for the tourism industry? (more…)

New Zealand set to host major events – and needs workers

Posted on 19/05/2021 by

The 2023 FIFA Women’s World Cup is just one of many major events coming to New Zealand over the next few years, and the industry will need staff to make it happen.

New Zealand has long been a fantastic destination for tourism, and more recently, it has become increasingly popular as a destination for major events.

Of course, we’ve just enjoyed hosting the America’s Cup, but there’s plenty more coming up. From sporting events to performer tours, artistic and cultural celebrations to foodie festivals, the annual calendar is filling up with exciting major events.

Here are a few of the most anticipated events on the horizon, and what that means for our tourism industry. (more…)

A Kiwi pilot during Covid-19: A Journey from Take-off to Stand Down

Posted on 11/05/2021 by

One anonymous pilot shares their story of what life has been like since the outbreak of covid-19.

At ITC, we pride ourselves on our industry contacts. It’s one of the many reasons why ITC and Study From Home graduates are so well regarded amongst the New Zealand travel, tourism, and aviation sectors.

We keep in regular contact with these industry professionals, and we were recently fortunate to hear from a Kiwi pilot working for one of the major airlines. While we cannot reveal their name or their company, we can share their story about exactly what it was like for an accomplished pilot as New Zealand went into lockdown and travel ground to a halt.

From disregarding the virus as media hype, to facing reality, finding low-skilled work, and positivity through it all, this is an incredible story of Kiwi resilience and an industry that’s once again on the rise. (more…)
