TWA Correction


On 7 January 2019, Travel Weekly Asia published an article on the demise of the Bestjet Travel OTA in Australia. The story included unsubstantiated allegations by the previous owner (Ms Rachel James) including statements that prior to the business sale Bestjet had been profitable and followed stringent operational, financial and industry protocols and that the new owners, McVicker International and/or Robert McVicker were guilty of poor management and the failure of the business in just 39 days.

Travel Weekly Asia now accepts that the article was unjustified and reflected poorly on McVicker International and Robert McVicker. Travel Weekly Asia further accepts that all of the allegations made against McVicker International and Robert McVicker were unsubstantiated and apologises unreservedly for publishing those allegations.
