Mon 27 January 2014 18:45 - 19:30
Aux Bacchanales, Hotel New Otani

The NCCJ cordially invites you and your colleagues to Sector Briefing with KLM on January 27, 2014:
Topic: “Opening a new direct route Amsterdam - Fukuoka.”

Event Overview

To open a new air route in a mature and stabilized international air travel market like Japan seems at first glance not to be the most logic decision. Various hurdles need to be overcome, both internally and externally.
Mark Arxhoek, Sales Director for Air France KLM in Japan, will give a brief overview about the processes before, during and after the opening phase.
And Junichiro Mizumoto, Sales Manager for Kyushu/Fukuoka, will explain the local implementation process, the actual performance and future developments related to this new air route.

About the Speakers

Mark Arxhoek is sales director for Air France KLM in Japan since June 2011. He started at KLM in 1988. After various positions in the KLM HQ in the Netherlands, he was Regional Commercial Director Greater China before his present position.

Junichiro Mizumoto is Sales Manager for the Kyushu/Fukuoka region. He was appointed to set up a new sales organization in Fukuoka before the launch of this new route.

The session will include a Q&A session.
