The Atlantic Hotel continues to fly the tourism flag for Jersey in Germany
14 February 2017
The Atlantic Hotel is continuing with its drive to attract more German visitors to Jersey despite uncertainty around the island's air links for 2017.
The family owned small luxury hotel, which features the Michelin-starred Ocean Restaurant, launched its drive with an event in Munich in the Spring of 2016 and has seen a noticable increase in the number of visitors it receives from the German market. Despite there being uncertainty with regards to air routes, the hotel is unwavering in its commitment to promote Jersey in Germany and will be hosting a media dinner for 10 high-end travel writers while in Berlin with Visit Jersey to attend a leading travel trade show, ITB Berlin, from Tuesday 6 March until Friday 9 March.
'As part of our ongoing desire to tell the world about the beautiful island of Jersey, its world class produce and of course The Atlantic Hotel, Ocean Restaurant and Mark Jordan at the Beach, we will be hosting a dinner for a group of influential journalists at Berlin's Schlosshotel Grunewald next month,' said owner and Managing Director, Patrick Burke.
'We know that there is significant interest in the Channel Islands and have certainly seen a marked increase in bookings from the German market over the last couple of years. We are committed to promoting the island in Germany for the long term and are confident that the current uncertainties regarding air travel will be successfully resolved.'
In addition to hosting a press dinner for the German media, The Atlantic Hotel will also be joining fellow members of Small Luxury Hotels of the World at a VIP showcase event and meeting with travel agents providing high end leisure individual, concierge service, corporate travel and MICE business as well as travel editors and freelance journalists from travel and consumer media.
Germany is the world's third most valuable outbound tourism marketing, worth an estimated $76.3bn in 2015.
