Utah tourism trying to go global

The Utah Office of Tourism is supporting a statewide effort in Utah’s business community to attract a direct flight from Salt Lake City to Paris on Delta Air Lines. Meeting in a conference call, the Utah Board of Tourism Development voted unanimously to allocate $250,000 from the Tourism Marketing Performance Fund to promote a potential Salt Lake City flight to Europe on Delta, which has a hub in Salt Lake City.

"This could really boost international visitation to Utah and Salt Lake City is the perfect gateway to Utah’s five national parks and 13 world-class ski resorts, "said Leigh von der Esch, managing director of the Utah Office of Tourism. "The state funding is contingent on the Salt Lake City direct flight being in place to Europe."

"Down the road this could really turn into something significant for us," said Kim McClelland, chairman of the tourism board who believes Utah should sell its strengths including national parks and skiing to European visitors. The board acknowledged that the Paris Charles de Gaulle Airport is a hub for international travel, providing service to other major overseas destinations.

The Office of Tourism will partner with the Salt Lake Convention and Visitors Bureau and the Salt Lake City International Airport to develop a marketing plan to boost economic development and bring more international visitors from Europe to Utah. The state agency will also provide international outreach by conducting familiarization tours for media and tour operators, as well as attending targeted trade shows.
