Aurora Expeditions has expanded its sales team by appointing a new business development manager.
James Turner, who has joined the team this month, will be responsible for training and sales support for tour operators, travel agencies and independent travel consultants.
He previously worked in expedition cruising in the Swiss Alps, Antarctica, Svalbard and Greenland.
The accomplished rock climber will be working alongside Craig Upshall, director of sales for UK and Europe.
“The appointment is a reflection of the rising trend for expedition trips to the polar regions,” said Upshall.
