Along with many others I suspect, I was a tad confused at the time regarding what actually emerged out of the merger of Jetset Travelworld Ltd and Stella Travel Services Holdings Pty Ltd in September 2010.

 

It was therefore very fortuitous that I was able to listen to a presentation at last week’s JTG Conference in Hong Kong by Peter Lacaze, which appeared on eTBTV on location yesterday at http://www.etravelblackboard.com/article/111869/jetset-travelworld-new-ceo-lacaze-paints-a-bright-picture-for-group-in-hong-kong-conference, which clarified things for certain for me and also I suspect others in the room, but also helped me realise the massive potential JTG now presented.

In essence, the outcome of the merger, which was completed only a short time ago is that The Jetset Travelworld Group has emerged as an integrated travel business operating several wholesale travel businesses, franchise-based and affiliate retail agency networks, air ticket consolidation, airline representation and travel management services, with operations in Australia, New Zealand, the USA, Fiji, Asia, the UK and South Africa.
