DC-based travel agency receives second GetThere’s Luminary Award

MacNair Travel Management, a privately owned American Express Representative Office, announced it is the recipient of its second GetThere’s Luminary Award. As a GetThere Premium Partner, MacNair Travel is being recognized for its achievements and innovations in driving increased travel savings for its corporate clients in 2007 by the use of an integrated travel procurement system. It is the 7th largest reseller of this online booking tool in North America.

MacNair’s President & CEO Michael MacNair attributes continued growth with GetThere’s online booking tool, branded as MacNairport, to its ability to customize the GetThere online reservation system with its customers’ travel policies, accounting procedures and branding to make it a powerful home for an organization’s travel management system.

“We also provide training to clients and ongoing support so that usage is maximized and the best value is secured for each travel transaction,” MacNair adds. “By providing travelers this technology solution, coupled with our support, we are ensuring travel-related cost and time savings for clients while increasing confidence.”

When using MacNair’s online booking tool, travelers have access to more fares, airlines, routings, hotels, and cars than any other private site (to include low cost carriers), MacNair adds.

GetThere’s technology supports more Fortune 500 companies than any other corporate online reservation tool and has seen an overall company growth in online bookings of 105 percent. In 2007, GetThere chose 11 Luminary Award Winners. According to GetThere, the award winners are chosen with a number of criteria in mind including, but not limited to, annual bookings, booking growth, use of GetThere features, adoption percentages and overall support of GetThere as an online booking tool.

“MacNair Travel Management continues to leverage GetThere as its primary corporate online booking tool resulting in an increase of online transactions of over 80 percent, year-over-year,” said Bev Heinritz, general manager of GetThere. “Your dedication and unwavering focus on the corporate online traveler has been demonstrated through increased use in optional products, continued efforts to improve overall support and customer satisfaction.”
