Travelport has signed a new partnership with the Global Travel & Tourism Partnership (GTTP), an educational programme designed to introduce students to careers in the travel and tourism industry.
The partnership sees Gordon Wilson, Traveport’s President & CEO, and Dirk Vande Beek, the company’s Senior Vice President of Corporate & Government Affairs, join the GTTP advisory board.
“Travelport is delighted to partner with GTTP to introduce students to career opportunities within the travel and tourism industry,” said Wilson. “We recognise that in order to support the continued growth of the travel sector and its critical role in the global economy, it is vital to expose students, their parents and their teachers to the industry. Through this partnership, we can encourage students to look at the industry as a source of worthwhile and rewarding careers.”
To date, more than 1.5 million students in 12 countries have joined the GTTP programme.
