Mice Net : February 2009
upfront briefs ZOOm Off a wInner wIth daydream Island Daydream Island Resort and Spa has launched its Zoom off a Winner campaign which gives conference decision makers and professional conference organisers the opportunity to win a stylish and zippy SYM Retro 50cc moped. With its powerful and economical 50cc engine, the SYM Retro 50cc is one of the most fuel efficient modes of motor transport. Considered the latest craze, mopeds are stylish, fun and most importantly comfortable to ride. All conference organisers who book a conference before June 3, 2009 on Daydream Island for two nights or more with a minimum of 10 rooms automatically go into the draw. Director of sales Suzy Bohan says the promotion had been initiated to thank the industry for its support and reward agents for their efforts in helping Daydream remain one of the most popular island destinations in Queensland. “Moped scooters have become a common fixture on the roads with an increasing number of people choosing the motorised scooters over a fuel-guzzling car,” she said. “Worth over $3000, this moped is a trendy and easy way of getting around.” As part of the promotion all bookings must be confirmed, deposited and fall within the nominated validity dates in 2009.

Check-in is set to become simpler for Emirates passengers in Australia with the introduction of a new e-boarding pass (eBP) which can be printed at home or in the office. The new technology was put in place in January for passengers departing Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane and Perth, just as the airline was preparing to increase capacity and flights into the Australian market. Emirates launched the A380 into Sydney on February 1, and introduced a third-daily flight into Melbourne and a second-daily flight into Brisbane. Under the eBP system, Emirates passengers who have successfully checked-in online at www. emirates.com/au, and are carrying only hand luggage, can print their boarding pass at home and bypass airport check-in counters, proceed directly through passport control and security to their boarding gate.
