The heart of Bollywood

Formerly known as Bombay, the city’s official name changed to Mumbai in 1995 when regional party Shiv Sena came into power, they saw Bombay as a relection of British Colonialism and wished the city’s name could reflect its Maratha heritage so renamed it to Mumbai, to pay tribute to the legacy of goddess Mumbadevi. It is India’s largest port, its commercial and industrial centre, sometimes referred to as the Financial Capital of India. It is also the heart of India’s thriving movie industry, known as Bollywood. In terms of film production, Indian Cinema is the largest film industry worldwide especially in relation to the large number of feature films produced.

The flights from Auckland to Mumbai take over 16 hours and 45 minutes, depending on the airline and transit points chosen. Contact your local Global Travel Network Agent to find the best possible airfares and suggestions to design your ideal holiday.

Some important places to visit are;

Chhatrapati Shivaji Terminus, formerly referred to as the Prince of Wales Museum of Western India built in the early 20th century, featuring lots of domes, turrets, spires and stained glass.

Gateway to India is a huge structure with a height of 26 metres and construction was completed in 1924. It overlooks the Mumbai harbour, entry point from the Arabian Sea.

The Consolidation team at GTN are excellent to deal with.  They are efficient and friendly, and when there has been queries with airlines or airfares, they have always sought answers and found solutions to the problem wherever possible.  The QuikTravel system is easy to use, as well as the additional information on the system around commissions, airline contacts, policies, as well as the summary of recent changes in fares & rules from airlines.  GTN is an excellent partner, and the small personal nature of the team is a good fit for our business
