Line joins 'invitation-only' network as a preferred partner

Aurora Expeditions, the expedition cruise company, has joined Virtuoso, a network of luxury travel sellers, as a preferred partner.

Virtuoso, which is known more as a US body, recently hired Karen Joyce, the former head of Austravel, to head up its EMEA growth.

“Becoming part of Virtuoso’s global network is a milestone accomplishment for Aurora Expeditions,” says Aurora Expeditions CEO Monique Ponfoort. “We’ve been afforded the opportunity to work with their incredibly talented and reputable member agencies in other areas of the world such as the Asia-Pacific, and our home country of Australia, so adding the Global Team and its adventurous client base to the mix is a true honour for us.”

“Virtuoso is thrilled to expand our relationship with Aurora Expeditions to now include a reach that goes beyond our initial offerings to the Asian-Pacific market,” says Beth Butzlaff, vice president, global partner relations, Virtuoso. “Aurora’s passion for adventure, one of the leading drivers of post-pandemic travel, conservation and perspective-altering experiences, are what our advisors and their clients continue to seek out and embrace with open arms.”

“The expedition and luxury travel space has evolved in a significant way. In a new landscape where travellers are looking for more life-changing and transformative experiences, Aurora Expeditions helps to ignite this curiosity. Our shared value of experiential travel resonates with the Virtuoso family, making Aurora an ideal fit for our network,” said Matthew d. Upchurch, Virtuoso, chairman and chief executive officer.
