Travelocity.com yesterday became the first Internet travel Web site to announce more than 20 million tickets sold.
It was just 15 months ago that Travelocity.com—after almost five years in business—sold its 10 millionth airline ticket. Since then, the massive growth of online travel has propelled the company to profitability, and now it has quickly sold another 10 million tickets.
“Based on these numbers, Travelocity.com has sold enough tickets to fly every man, woman and child in the state of New York and Washington, D.C., to their favorite vacation destination, with a few tickets to spare,” said Terrell B. Jones, president and chief executive officer of Travelocity.com. Travelocity.com has registered more than 32 million members.
