LINK Travel Group has added six new members to its invitation-only membership ranks, with Reho Travel (formerly part of Helloworld Business Travel), Platinum Travel Management, Entourage Travel Group, Mobilise Travel, Mosman Travel and Mary Rossi Travel all coming aboard.
Link said the newly created group is well suited to accept the “well-reputed” independent Australian travel agencies, labelling them “a welcome fit” for the joint venture formed between Flight Centre Travel Group, The Goldman Group and Spencer Group of Companies.
While the new members will be a boon for the fledgling agency network, the announcement also included news of experienced travel executives joining its Board, with Reho Travel CEO Karsten Horne and Platinum Travel Group CEO Andy Buerckner joining.
“Andy Buerckner and Karsten Horne will now sit alongside our founding members, with a few more select Advisory Board Members to be announced in the near future,” Link Travel Group General Manager, Scott Darlow said.
“We are entering a new frontier in travel and Link Travel Group is paving the way for our industry to grow sustainably, with new ideas and unique solutions to build a better future,” he added.
