Argo Travel was founded in 1952 and specialises in business and conference travel, with three offices in Athens, Thessalonica and Piraeus. The agreement with Sabre Travel Network’s Greek office will start on 1 January 2004.
Dimitris Pithis, managing director of Argo Travel, said the company had already worked with Sabre Travel Network through Argo Travel’s office in Geneva.
“We knew of the Swiss team’s success in using the Sabre global distribution system. Our experience with the Sabre Travel Network team in Greece has proved as promising - they set out all our commercial objectives and showed us how these would be achieved. Having researched the market in Greece, we knew this was the right choice.”
Agis Athanassiadis, managing director of Sabre Hellas, said: “This deal has strengthened our position in the Greek market and Sabre Travel Network’s ongoing plans to expand our presence in the region.”
