“The tourism sector in India is looking very positive this year as we have crossed the 10 million mark for foreign tourist arrivals and earned revenue of US$27 billion through foreign tourist arrivals,” Alphons said at the event.

With a legacy that dates back to 1758, when Cox & Kings was appointed as general agents to the regiment of Foot Guard in India, the company has established itself as a premium brand in all travel-related services across the world, and has been at the forefront of thought leadership and innovation within the industry.

In over two-and-a-half centuries since inception, the company has seen tremendous growth, from being a general agent of the regiment of Foot Guard in India to a premium brand in all things travel.

Cox & Kings is also known as a leader in travel innovation, with several firsts to its name. Cox & Kings Group CEO Peter Kerkar says, “From chartering a special plane to view the longest solar eclipse of the 21st century, introducing Russia’s first luxury train ‘Bolshoi Express’, launching state-of-the-art luxury railway journeys in India, revamping several Indian palaces as wedding destinations, offering tailor-made packages to the world’s largest pilgrimage – the Maha Kumbh Mela, and acquiring a mountain in the heart of the Swiss Alps to boost outbound tourism, the company promises to continue to be at the forefront of thought leadership and innovation within the industry.”

The evening also witnessed the launch of a series of year-long events and the ‘260th Grand Celebration Offer’ on holidays around the world.
