Hurtigruten cements APAC operations

HURTIGRUTEN celebrated the official opening of its Hong Kong office last week, marking a milestone in the company’s operations in APAC.

The company has been working in the region for many years, but newly-appointed managing director of APAC Damian Perry told Travel Daily the company had reached a new stage.

Perry takes over from William Harber, who spent the past 12 months establishing a team out of the Hong Kong “hub”.

The company is now upping its commitment to the region, working towards “more resources, more people, more solutions and a better understanding of that market which will hopefully result in better results and even better growth,” Perry explained.

The Aussie model with Bentours as Hurtigruten’s GSA was “working really well”, Perry said, adding that the focus in Australia was on stronger marketing & brand messages & ensuring agents understood the line’s offering.

Members of the Hong Kong office and close partners are pictured cutting the ribbon with Damian Perry and Geir Kronbaeck, vp global sales.
