ALTOUR International Ltd and Top Flight Travel announce partnership

ALTOUR International Ltd and Top Flight Travel (part of the Uniglobe global network), have announced a partnership in the UK having signed an agreement with an expected close date by the end of the year.This deal will result in a significant increase and complement to ALTOUR’s existing UK corporate and entertainment footprint with annual turnover expected to be in excess of £100 Million.

Alexandre Chemla (Founder and CEO of ALTOUR International with global revenues in excess of $2 Billion), commented “we are proud to welcome the Top Flight team into the ALTOUR family and it further represents our strategic desire to grow our business globally. ALTOUR offers a truly differentiated proposition to both our existing and potential clients”.  

ALTOUR already has significant operations in the USA, UK, France and Japan and recently became a member of Radius Travel, (which delivers travel programs for multinational companies through a network of best-in-market agencies), plus a further two recent acquisitions within the US.  

Barry and Maria Baty (co-owners of Top Flight Travel), added “we recognised in ALTOUR a shared ethos and integrity in the way we operate and firmly believe this opportunity presents an exciting development for both our organisations. Very quickly, we established a cultural match as well as an opportunity to further strengthen our client offering whilst retaining the essential DNA which has made Top Flight successful”.  

Nigel Parkinson (Senior Vice President - Global Sales at ALTOUR), commented “we view this as an opportunity to both develop our joint client value proposition and give our internal teams a strong message around ALTOUR’s strategic growth plans. The objective is to actively leverage this and the other recent USA acquisitions, as well as our Radius Travel membership, to grow our corporate client base. These steps will enhance our offering to clients who are increasingly looking for more innovative ways to structure their commercial relationships with TMCs.”
