LONDON, December 15, 2011 /PRNewswire/ --
We are pleased to announce Key Travel N.V. (Belgium) joined GlobalStar Travel Management as our Belgian partner, operating in Brussels at the heart of Europe. This move fills an important gap in GlobalStar's European network, and further strengthens Key Travels credentials as a leading player in Belgium.
Commenting on behalf of GlobalStar; Mark van Iersel, Director Marketing and Partner recruitment, says "We chose Key Travel because of their skills in handling truly international travel, matched with high service levels and core strength in applying technology. Key Travel is very ambitious and the management culture and international focus is a good fit with GlobalStar."
Commenting on behalf of Key Travel; Steve Summers, CEO, says "We are looking to build upon our success in Belgium and increase growth further; becoming a member of GlobalStar allows us to do this, without reducing the focus on our non-profit clients. An increasing number of corporate clients want the high levels of service and agent expertise we offer, gained through serving the international NGO community. Commercial organizations want to tackle overall travel spend without commoditizing the service they receive from their travel agent, and our experience in driving value fits neatly with this."
Commenting on why they chose GlobalStar, Summers goes on to say, "GlobalStar has shown itself to be a professional network with strong partner integration based on shared principles and robust technologies. We look forward to seeing how we can exploit this to enhance our business in Europe and explore how we can use this alliance to better serve the global non-profit community."
