APG NETWORK CELEBRATES 30 YEARS SINCE LAUNCH
APG, the world's leading airline distribution network, will be celebrating its 30th anniversary throughout 2021. The APG Network currently has over 110 offices across 170 countries and maintains commercial partnerships with more than 200 airlines worldwide. In addition, APG now operates its own airline, APG Airlines, an IATA member, which has allowed APG to develop several new distribution solutions linked to the airline’s code, GP.
Sandrine de Saint Sauveur - President APG Inc explains: "We are very proud to celebrate the 30th anniversary of the APG network, created by Jean-Louis Baroux, its visionary founder. It is a real "success story": We have always had a clear path and kept to the fundamentals of our business. At the start, there were 5 offices in 5 different countries, and now the network covers over 170 countries, and our worldwide presence is now one of our unique values.”
Richard Burgess, President of APG Network continues: “We have always favoured a human approach, always remained aligned with the needs of our industry, whilst also maintaining high standards and being proud of the confidence that our airline clients place in our global network. Of course, celebrating a 30th anniversary in the current climate is not easy. However, we are actively preparing for the rebound which we know will come sometime this year and we are confident that we will emerge from this crisis even stronger."
They conclude: “Air transport is a key driver of the world’s economies and is also important in promoting human understanding between the many cultures of the world. We will continue to offer our 30 years of expertise in commercial distribution to airlines around the world."
