TORONTO, ON –July 26, 2016 – Worldview Travel, headquartered in Toronto, Canada, is pleased to announce that Pisa Brothers Travel of New York City, NY will be officially known as Worldview Travel, effective July 26, 2016.
Founded in 1924, Pisa Brothers Travel has provided New York luxury travelers with 92 years of impeccable service. In 2008, the iconic midtown Manhattan travel agency was purchased by Worldview Travel, and has operated as “Pisa Brothers Travel, A Worldview Travel Company” for the last eight years. With the rapid growth of Worldview Travel, the rollout of new top tier Independent Contractor programs, and the release of industry leading technology, the decision was made to transition the name fully to “Worldview Travel”.
“We have dramatically grown the power of the Worldview Travel brand,” explains Cheryl Nicholson, executive vice-president, Leisure and Loyalty at Worldview Travel. “Our NYC office was missing out on some of the exponential brand benefits. We have a particularly exciting year underway with the recent acquisition of Century Travel in Atlanta, the rollout of our proprietary aDX booking platform for leisure agents, and an array of higher commissions and amenities from our expanded procurement team for our exceptional airline, land and cruise programs”
“Waiting eight years to transition the brand speaks to our patience in partnerships and acquisitions,” says Jeff Willner, CEO and owner of TravelEdge, the parent company of Worldview Travel. “Our focus is on patiently building the best luxury travel agency network in North America and we have made great progress toward that goal.”
