Netherlands is a country I have been to when I was very much younger, and it also hold many fond memories of the country as well as the super friendly and nice people. One of my close friends was also married to a Dutchman.. and well, I once hoped to be able to marry a Dutch too, but sadly I never met the One there, though I did meet a lot of awesome Dutch people and some who are friends until today…
Anyway, did you know, Tourism Malaysia and leading Dutch airline KLM recently signed a promotional partner collaboration agreement, which is an effort to boost the tourist arrivals from the Netherlands and other European countries to Malaysia.
Both parties will be taking necessary steps to promote Malaysia to Dutch and Belgium travellers. Tourism Malaysia and KLM is in the midst of developing a substantive programme to increase consumer awareness and stimulate travel to Malaysia.
One of the elements of the extensive promotional programme is to feature a lead article on Malaysia in the airline’s magazine ‘Flying Dutchman’, which is read by more than four million readers and will also reach hundreds of thousands of KLM’s online followers.
Tourism Malaysia was represented by its Deputy Director General (Promotion) Dato’ Sri Abdul Khani Daud, while KLM was represented by its Commercial Director Daan Pijzel.
The agreement was signed in the presence of the Minister of Tourism and Culture Malaysia Dato’ Seri Mohamed Nazri Abdul Aziz, who is leading a Malaysian delegation to promote Malaysia in the Netherlands and encourage more travellers from the country, as well as other European countries, to visit Malaysia.
“I believe that the combined marketing efforts of both our organisations will result in stronger customer demand and confidence in Malaysia as an ideal holiday destination. KLM is a leading airline while Amsterdam is an important hub to reach other European customers. Therefore, this collaboration is very important for us,” said Dato’ Seri Mohamed Nazri.
As part of the Air France-KLM group, KLM is one of the leading airlines in Continental Europe, having its home base in the Netherlands using Amsterdam Schiphol Airport to connect to more than 150 destinations directly from Amsterdam
So to my Dutch friends, Selamat Datang ke Malaysia , welkom in Maleisië…
