Gaura Travel Partners with Qantas Airlines at The Victorian Festival of Diwali 2022

Gaura Travel and the leading airline in Australia, Qantas, enthusiastically participated in Celebrate India’s Victorian Festival of Diwali that took place at Fed Square, Melbourne, on Saturday, October 29, 2022.

The Victorian Festival of Diwali returned after a two-year hiatus, and the Indian community felt more than happy to be able to spend the day at the vibrant festival together.

At the event, Gaura Travel and Qantas set up a stand that drew more than 1000 guests. The spin-the-wheel game, where players could win prizes after learning about Gaura Travel’s flight specials, delighted guests both young and old, and brought smiles to many faces.

This year marks Qantas’ first time partaking in the Victorian Festival of Diwali due to their recent launch of a new flight route from Sydney to Bengaluru, establishing the first direct flight connection between Australia and Southern India by airline. Moreover, it was announced that passengers who book Qantas flights through Gaura Travel will receive a special discount on the ticket fare.

In addition to the partnership with Qantas, Gaura Travel also sponsored a lucky draw for a chance to win a free flight to India. Gaura Travel is also proud to have participated in Celebrate India’s Pink Diwali campaign by donating $1 per ticket sold to the National Breast Cancer Foundation during the months of August and September, the final amount adding up to over $5,000.

We at Gaura Travel are very excited to take part in future festivities and can’t wait until the next one! We’ll see you there!
