Monday, May 02, 2022 0

VisitPITTSBURGH and Pittsburgh International Airport  unveiled their first ever training program focused on UK and Ireland travel agents.

It comes as British Airways relaunches direct flight s from London Heathrow on 3 June.

To celebrate the launch, it is offering an agent incentive to accelerate learning.

Those who sign up and complete the first module by 10 May will be entered into a prize draw to win one of five places on a VisitPITTSBURGH group FAM, departing on the British Airways flight on 3 June.

The FAM trip itinerary will include ‘Only in Pittsburgh’ experiences such as a visit to The Andy Warhol Museum and discovering city flavours with the ‘Burgh Bits & Bites food tour.

Created by Mogul, an e-learning provider and sister company of Black Diamond, the program consists of three modules; an introduction to Pittsburgh, ‘Only in Pittsburgh’ experiences, and city tours.

Each of the modules has six lessons and a short quiz to test agents’ knowledge as they learn.

All of the lessons have been carefully crafted to give agents the skills to e secure and maximise bookings.

Those who successfully complete it will be crowned a Pittsburgh Pro and receive a PDF certificate.

Jerad Bachar, CEO at VisitPITTSBURGH, said: “We’re thrilled to be launching our first ever travel agent training program at such a critical time. The UK and Ireland market is hugely important to us.”

“The return of the British Airways direct flight from London Heathrow serves to showcase Pittsburgh as an accessible, attractive destination for travellers.”

More modules and competition prizes, will be added to the training platform over time.
