On Site: Apple Leisure Group's Three Tour Operator Brands to Be on Same Platform by the Fall

Mark Photiades, product manager for the Dominican Republic for Apple Leisure Group

PUNTA CANA, Dominican Republic -- Mark Photiades, product manager for the Dominican Republic for Apple Leisure Group, told Travel Agent Wednesday afternoon that the company's three tour operators, Travel Impressions, Apple Vacations and CheapCaribbean.com, will all be on the same platform by the fall of this year. 

"Each has such great potential, but we want to merge all three," he says. "We want to fix that gap. This will make it a lot easier for us to distribute product to travel agents."

We chatted with Photiades as part of our ongoing coverage of the Dominican Annual Tourism Exchange (DATE). Photiades says one of the greatest assets of having all three on one platform is that it will greatly benefit Apple Leisure Group's charter flight business.
