Uniglobe Travel International LP has expanded with the addition of a new Global member — Lintas Travel, headquartered in Kula Lumpur, Malaysia. Founded in 1986 by Haji Zain, Lintas Travel is one of the leading Bumiputra travel agencies in Malaysia and is dedicated to providing end-to-end care for corporate and personal travellers worldwide. Their Umrah and Hajj services are specially customized to accommodate clients’ unique preferences, as an individual, a team or an organization
Martin Charlwood, president for Uniglobe Travel International, said: “In today’s climate of globalization, being serious about the business of business travel makes an association with a worldwide brand-name organization almost imperative.”
Charlwood noted that “Uniglobe Travel offers a network of 700+ locations in more than 60 countries around the world, and with Lintas Travel, we believe we have an excellent mutual fit.”
The Uniglobe Global Partner program is open to top performing agencies in any country that is not presently covered by a master franchise and introduces Uniglobe Travel to new business markets. The program, which has been operational since late 2006, allows Travel Management Companies (TMCs) to enjoy the benefits of combining their own locally established and recognized brand with the global brand of Uniglobe Travel.
U. Gary Charlwood, founder, chairman and CEO of Canadian-owned UNIGLOBE Travel International, said: “I am delighted to welcome Malaysia and Lintas Travel to our growing network of Global members. The UNIGLOBE network and buying power will translate into advantages and savings for Lintas clients, and the Lintas leadership will no doubt grow our collective brands in the local market.”
