Company Profile

Fortunate Travel was founded in 2004 by Mrs. Anna Chow and transformed into a V.O.F. in 2006, with Mrs. Anna Chow and Mr. Michael Chu as shareholders.

Since then, the company has experienced steady growth, establishing its headquarters in Arnhem, with two branches in The Hague and Rotterdam, and five agents spread across major cities, including Eindhoven, Nijmegen, Amsterdam, Hengelo, and Zoetermeer.

In 2007, the company was accredited as an agent of the International Air Transportation Association (IATA) (IATA number 57211630), enabling it to act as a ticket consolidator. Revenue doubled between 2007 and 2008, followed by further growth between 2008 and 2009.

The management team comprises experts from various fields, including Mrs. Anna Chow, with over 10 years of experience in aviation, Mr. Michael Chu, with a background as an advisor in various industries, and Mrs. Jing Chen, with extensive experience in a multicultural environment.

Fortunate Travel has not only succeeded in ticket sales but also expanded its travel organization. The office in Hong Kong, under the name Fortunate Travel Group, was accredited as a member of the Travel Industry Council of Hong Kong (TIC number: 22475-O) in August 2010, enabling further development of international travel arrangements.

The company’s tourist activities include travel within Europe, travel to Asia, and golf-related travel. Especially in Japan, trips have been developed from Europe via Beijing, Shanghai, or Hong Kong. Fortunate Travel distinguishes itself through flexible and cost-effective contracts with major Chinese airlines, allowing customers to visit China and Japan at attractive rates.

Another focus is on golf-related activities, for which the company collaborates with China Southern Airline and is a corporate member of Mission Hill Golf Resort. These partnerships enable Fortunate Travel to offer high-quality and affordable golf trips, with a wide range of golf courses in China.

For future development, Fortunate Travel is focusing on two perspectives. In terms of ticketing, the company aims to expand into new market segments, including growing Chinese student populations and second-generation Chinese migrants who prefer online ticketing. On the tourism front, travel arrangements will be expanded to various areas, such as golf, leisure, and business travel, with customized cultural trips to Asia.

The ultimate goal of Fortunate Travel is to become a tourism group with international standards. With the IATA accreditation, the company has already gained international recognition in ticket sales. The next goal is to achieve international standards within three years with an ISO 9001 accreditation for tourism services.
