Meet The Elite

Delta Air Lines, Air France, KLM, and Alitalia’s Agency Elite Awards recognized 15 top Agencies and 3 Travel Management Companies for achieving Elite Status during a VIP luncheon in Toronto, reports Press Today’s Rodney Tugwell.

The 4th Annual Agency Elite Awards were held at a VIP luncheon yesterday at the Thomson Landry Gallery in Toronto’s historic Distillery District.

Rob LeBel, Managing Director Specialty and Canada Sales for Delta Airlines, congratulated the award winners for achieving over $300 million in global sales revenue. The quality of the revenue increased with an average fare growth of 5%.

Looking ahead to 2020, LeBel offered the luncheon VIPs some insight on the Delta/WestJet transborder Joint Venture partnership. Being optimistic that this venture will be fully approved in the first quarter of 2020 from a managed agency perspective this venture will account for 30% of the transborder market.
