The announcement:

Melbourne based production company Safari have launched – ARRIVAL. A photographic exhibition now showing at Melbourne International Airport celebrating diversity and the warmth of human connection between travellers and their loved ones.

Safari have a long history in the travel and tourism sector and the exhibition was inspired by the emotional reactions of travellers, friends and relatives that they have seen across Arrival Halls around the world – from London, Kathmandu, Christchurch and Dehli.

David Hall, Airport Chief of Aviation at Melbourne Airport said, ”The images are very raw and I think they will help build excitement for those waiting inside the Arrivals Hall”.

Andrew Englisch, Safari Photographer said, “While technology and air travel has changed dramatically from the romantic days of yesteryear, the emotion, the tears, the smiles and even the handwritten welcome signs that greet loved ones as they walk through the Arrival doors have not. One of the families turned up with 49 relatives to greet their Lebanese grandparents who were arriving in Australia for the first time. We were blown away!”.

Building on the media interest and success of the exhibition, Safari are now planning on taking the ARRIVAL concept global, featuring 12 different locations over 12 months.

Nigel Camilleri, Safari Director said, “The simplicity and universal appeal of ARRIVAL has really resonated with people and we feel it deserves to be seen around the world”.

Safari works across a broad range of clients in the travel, tourism and adventure category including Mountain Designs, Anaconda, Visit Sunshine Coast And Wanaka, NZ.
