On 17 July, 2018, the German National Tourist Board (GNTB) hosted a live webinar on WeChat to introduce its partner airline Lufthansa to the Chinese travel trade. The presenter, Mr Zhu Yifan, Business Development Manager at Lufthansa, introduced the airline’s rebranding, its fleet, how travel agents can book and pay for tickets, and the services offered on board, as well as the miles programs and rewards for corporate customers. After the presentation, the travel agents in attendance had the opportunity to ask questions, which were all answered live. The webinar, broadcast through Dragon Trail’s CTA Live platform, reached almost 700 page views in less than a week.
