Whirlwind tour of Osaka.

Sixteen Passenger Sales Agents from Vancouver Reservations travelled to Osaka, Japan to learn more about Air Canada's newest destination.

According to Sakina Agha, it was an action-packed three days of touring. "This was a memorable trip," she said, "and it was hard to say 'sayonara' to Osaka. Our trip not only enhanced our knowledge of Japan, but also helped the group form a special bond with one another."
