Travel comparison website travelsupermarket.com is appointing Bob Atkinson as manager of its flight business.
Bob joins the growing travelsupermarket.com team with over 18 years experience in the UK travel industry, mostly in the flights sector. Holding a variety of sales, business development and operational roles in both charter and scheduled companies, such as Avro (part of the Monarch Travel Group), British Airways, CT2 Flights and Holidays and Cheapestflights.co.uk, Bob has a comprehensive background in all aspects of flights distribution with the UK Trade.
In his new role, Bob aims to expand the website’s flights service from its existing partners, including leading brands and airlines such as ebookers, Opodo, Airline Network, British Airways and Virgin Atlantic, to over 75 partners. This will ensure that travelsupermarket.com offers every main player in the flight market and further consolidates itself as the best travel metasearch service on the web.
Bob said, “This is an incredibly exciting time for travelsupermarket.com and a fantastic opportunity for me. The website’s dramatic development over the past two years proves it has got the customer experience right. I’m delighted to be part of this dynamic team and begin developing the website’s flight service. With the contacts I bring with me I hope to work closely with existing partners as well as expand them.”
