Most Outstanding Tour Operator Winner 2022

We're thrilled to announce that we won Most Outstanding Tour Operator at the AFTA National Travel Industry Awards!

The NTIA are part of the Australian Federation of Travel Agents to recognise and reward excellence in the Australian travel industry. Nominees were subject to a rigorous application process requiring them to demonstrate excellence in customer service and trade support.

The travel industry has suffered immense hardship over the last few years, so to be recognised as a finalist is a huge testament to the resilience of Chimu as a company.

We'd like to publicly acknowledge and thank the caring, hardworking, and forward-thinking travel agents who not only helped Chimu passengers return safely, but also stranded Aussie travellers around the globe. 

Despite the hardships of the last few years, Chimu never stopped innovating, supporting local communities, or looking after one another. Here are a few of our proudest moments from recent years: 

Watch the
Chimu Documentary

When international borders were slammed shut, Chimu passengers were stranded in South America. We switched into crisis management mode, chartered an aircraft, and got our travellers home as soon as we could.  Watch the documentary to see how it all happened.

Southern Lights
By Flight

Border closures meant international travel was on hold, but Chimu took advantage of this unprecedented situation and created a unique tourism offering - the Southern Lights by Flight. This amazing scenic flight took travellers down south in search of the famous Aurora Australis.

Footsteps for Food
James McAlloon

The pandemic meant that our South American travel partners were left with no source of income. Chimu's James McAlloon decided to start Footsteps for Food - a fundraiser to walk across Australia and raise enough money to provide food and hygiene packages for more than 900 families in Latin America.
