Every captain needs a first mate. And at Virgin Voyages, the adults-only cruise line set to debut in 2020, its second-in-command will be none other than travel agents.
MONTREAL — Vision Travel has increased its foothold in the Quebec market with the acquisition of Montreal-based Voyages Cortravco.
Voyages Cortravco was established in 1990 by Kit Sawhney and his sister Sarita Sawhney as an international corporate travel management agency, specializing in small to medium size clients with a reputation built on a high level of customer service.
The company will operate as Cortravco, a Direct Travel Company, but under the Vision Travel umbrella.
“We are excited to welcome the entire team from Voyages Cortravco into our family,” said Joel Ostrov, President of Vision Travel, Quebec East Region of Direct Travel. “This acquisition will solidify our leadership in the Montreal corporate and high-end leisure market, bringing even more talent to our organization here in the Quebec East Region of Direct Travel.”
Kit Sawhney will continue on with the company as Senior Vice President, Vision Travel, Quebec East Region, reporting directly to Ostrov. Sarita will stay on as Senior Director, VIP Client Services.
“We knew this would be a great fit with Vision & Direct’s continued growth and global strategy,” said Sawhney. “Their personalized approach to travel is right in line with how we have done business for the past 28 years.”
