TCS World Travel Announces Final Chapter of Long-Standing Partnership with National Geographic Expeditions to Pursue New Business Goals
SEATTLE--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Jun 14, 2018--TCS World Travel, the world’s leading tour operator of private jet expeditions for 25 years, and National Geographic Expeditions announce they have decided to conclude their long-standing partnership as both companies pursue new business goals. The decision comes as TCS World Travel, an award-winning private jet tour operator, focuses on expanding its branded luxury jet expeditions and custom travel division, while National Geographic Expeditions brings its private jet tour operations in-house for its 2020 trips after the acquisition of the Chicago-based tour operator, Global Adrenaline, in 2017.
TCS World Travel has operated all National Geographic Expeditions private jet trips since 2001 and will continue to do so on departures through December 31, 2019. Both companies look forward to providing unparalled and enriching experiences for their mutual guests on their remaining private jet trips through the end of 2019.
“We’ve enjoyed a wonderful partnership with National Geographic Expeditions,” said TCS World Travel President Shelley Cline. “As we prioritize our long term growth through strategic initiatives like our relaunched website, product innovation and investment in new jets coming in 2020, we, along with our partners at National Geographic Expeditions, decided to part ways at the end of 2019.”
TCS World Travel is also prioritizing alliances with long-term strategic partners that are differentiated from its approach to the high-end traveler. The luxury tour operator’s current distinguished partners include Four Seasons Hotels and Resorts, Young President’s Organization (YPO), Kalos Golf, Smithsonian Journeys and the Signature Network. TCS World Travel is also looking to expand its international partnerships, as evidenced by its growing collaboration with Latitudes, a Brazilian luxury operator focused on enrichment.
