Anex Travel Group takes root at Rimini Airport

All-Romagna operational base for the landing in Italy of Anex Travel Group, the second largest tourist operator in the world by turnover (10 billion euros in the pre-pandemic), which opens its management offices (230 square meters) inside the International Airport of Rimini and San Marino Federico Fellini.

Anex, which has been operating on the tourist market for more than 25 years and specializes in beach holidays, city breaks and luxury travel, reaches 33 destination markets (including Thailand, Spain, United Arab Emirates, Greece, Morocco, India, Vietnam, Czech Republic , Andorra, Dominican Republic, Mexico, Bulgaria, Cyprus, Montenegro, Georgia, Malta, Cuba, Tunisia, Jordan, Russia, Italy, Sri Lanka), with an “integrated” offer that ranges from transport (air and road) to hospitality and services and travel experiences (thanks to 3,000 tourist guides). The TO has a fleet of 46 aircraft, with its company Azur Air, which operate with more than 300 routes over 62 international airports, connecting 150 cities around the world.

The first flight connections of the operator to the Romagna airport will start from May.

“The presence of a player of this caliber on our territory – emphasizes the Regional Councilor for Tourism, Commerce, Mobility, Infrastructure and Transport, Andrea Corsini – for a long time” courted “by the Region, is the premise for the continuous internationalization of our offer vacation, which we have been working on for years and which only the pandemic has partially slowed down. Strengthened by the most recent provisions on travel (abandonment of the contagion map in favor of an “individual” approach), the world will soon return to travel more freely and, thanks to Anex Tour, Rimini and Romagna will be even more the door access to the rich holiday offer of our Region. An offer which, as evidenced by the constant attention registered in recent weeks by Emilia Romagna at Expo Dubai, boasts excellence admired all over the world, which act as a powerful tourist attraction for our territories “.

“This is great news – says Jamil Sadegholvaad, mayor of Rimini and president of Visit Romagna – both from a practical / operational and symbolic point of view. If on the first point there is no need to add further considerations to the evidence, I will dwell more on the second aspect. A few days ago I publicly declared how it is necessary to return to raise one’s head and, especially on the tourism front, the economic sector most penalized by the pandemic, it is necessary to return to planning activities on the basis of a more positive and pro-active general approach. We cannot continue to remain motionless, suspended; it is necessary to search for a new normality, finding ways of concrete coexistence with the problem. Other countries in the Mediterranean and European area are doing it, and our direct competitors on the tourist side are doing it. The landing of Anex Travel Group at Rimini airport therefore means opening up a horizon that has been blocked in the last two years; to give a strong signal of trust to a Riviera and a city like Rimini that in recent years have invested a lot to regenerate and increase the offer of services and beauty; to put the airport back in the center of the village, a strategic structure for our tourism and our businesses on which we will all have to focus our efforts and our development projects in the coming years “.

«We have chosen one of the most dynamic tourist districts in Europe – declares the Deputy General Manager Italy of Anex Tour, Claudio Abbadessa – to start our operations in Italy. With its new offer of art and culture, the renewal and pedestrianization of the promenades, the cycle paths and the high quality of life that you breathe here, the Riviera Romagnola today knows how to offer tourists much more than a simple seaside holiday and is highly competitive with the other European destinations reached by Anextour. And thanks to the high speed and the other connections it is “close” to the most attractive tourist Italy. From May we will start the first connections with the airport, destined to grow as we move away from the pandemic ».
