Evidence of the latest threat to the Canadian retail travel sector is probably right in your own wallet. It’s your Costco membership card.
TORONTO – The Travel Agent Next Door (TTAND) has just added WestJet to its growing list of suppliers in response to travel agent feedback.
According to the company, the new supplier agreement with the airline was made in order to “continue to offer the suppliers its agency network is asking for.”
Following a survey of their agents, TTAND also added Gateways International, Tourcan, Bedsonline, CIE Tours and Rail Europe as suppliers. And in keeping with the company’s strategy of “less is more”, TTAND recently delisted some suppliers.
“We are very pleased with our new association with WestJet Airlines,” said Flemming Friisdahl, Founder, The Travel Agent Next Door. “We listened to our agents and they told us that WestJet was an important supplier in terms of satisfying customers’ needs.”
