MLT Vacations Addresses Continental, United Merger

Continental and United Airlines officially cut a $3 billion merger deal creating the world’s largest airline with a global network serving 370 destinations around the world.

But how would this historic deal affect one of the largest Mexico and Caribbean tour operators?

Travel Agent spoke to a spokesperson at MLT Vacations, which assumed management of the Continental Airlines Vacations brand in 2008 and has had tremendous success in partnering with Continental to dramatically grow Continental Airlines Vacations.

“We expect that trend to continue in 2010,” MLT Vacations said in a statement. “MLT Vacations is conducting business as usual with the Continental Airlines Vacations brand. Travel agents can continue to book Continental Airlines Vacations with confidence. We will continue to offer outstanding customer service and will continue to provide our full range and scope of destinations and products.”

And that’s good news for MLT, which has become one of the hottest operators in the industry since partnering with Continental.

In fact, the operator is slated to make an aggressive increase to its portfolio in the next 30-60 days as it plans to add destinations in Latin America, the Middle East and Europe.
