with Give Kids The World Village

We’re also happy to be serving some of the inspirational families that visit Give Kids the World Village − and give them a unique Orlando experience.”

As part of its commitment to Give Kids the World Village, Tourico Holidays has initiated a company-wide program that includes the automatic withdrawal for employee donations with a company match, “Work Week” volunteer windows, and a Volunteer of the Year award.

“The Give Kids The World vacation is about offering each wish child the opportunity to participate in as many exceptional experiences as possible during a weeklong dream escape” mentions Mitch Goldberg, Director of Development for Give Kids the World. “The Give Kids The World vacation is about offering each wish child the opportunity to participate in as many exceptional experiences as possible during a weeklong dream escape,” states Pamela Landwirth, President of Give Kids The World. “As an international vacation provider involved in some of the most meaningful vacations imaginable, Tourico Holidays is the perfect partner for Give Kids The World.”

FORT WORTH, Texas, and ORLANDO, Fla. (June 13, 2012) − American Airlines announced today that global wholesale travel provider Tourico Holidays has implemented American’s direct connect − a technology link that offers travel providers access to American’s fares, schedules and customized travel products and services.

“American’s direct connect technology will allow Tourico Holidays to offer our customers the latest in exclusive travel innovations, like American’s current Preferred Seats and upcoming Main Cabin Extra products, in a personalized and interactive fashion,” said Jason Soss, President of Global Business Development for Tourico Holidays.

Travel providers can aggregate personalized travel products and services from American’s direct connect with information from other technology sources to produce a single integrated display of travel options, as Tourico Holidays elected to do in agent displays as well as its customer-facing websites.
