Chinta Air Tours – SA Tourism Awards 1 March 2018
In 2017, Chinta Air Tours was awarded bronze in the category of Specialised Tourism Services at the 2017 South Australian Tourism Awards.
It is the second consecutive year that the company has been awarded a bronze medal. In 2016, the company was awarded bronze in the category for Tour Operators (with less than 15 staff).
“There were 174 entrants in the awards program and just to be a finalist you had to score at least 75 per cent. To be a finalist is fabulous and to win a medal is brilliant” said Noel Schwarz, Chinta Air Tour’s Managing Director.
“Taking bronze in a different category shows a consistency of service and shows we are meeting a variety of targets,” Mr Schwarz said.
“We moved between categories because we act as an Uber of the air. We take people from one region to another. On arrival, they may join a 4WD tour with a local guide, stay the night in the best available accommodation, and dine on local delicacies.
“In that respect our flights are part of the whole package and we felt this category suited our business better.”
He said the bronze was not only a reflection of the Chinta Air team but showed it was linking with other quality tour suppliers across South Australia to provide a tour that was of a consistently high standard.
