TPI Helps AC Celebrate 70 Years
09/26/2007 - Travel Professionals International

Travel Professionals International (TPI), Canada’s largest network of home-based travel agents, took part in Air Canada's 70th birthday celebrations and welcomed the TPI Preferred Partner's latest fleet addition to Winnipeg James Richardson International Airport (YWG) in early September, 2007.

The VIP event, hosted by Air Canada at their Winnipeg Air Canada Technical Services (ACTS) hangar, was attended by partners from the travel industry and hundreds of current and former Air Canada employees and their families, as an Air Canada Boeing 777 was put on display to the delight of all those in attendance. The festive atmosphere included tents retelling the history of Air Canada in photographs, booths by fellow ACE Aviation Holdings companies and, of course, birthday cake.

However, judging by the scores-deep lineup waiting to board the new plane, the 777 was truly the star of the show.

"The lie-flat seats are amazing," exclaimed Robyn Lussier, a TPI Associate from Winnipeg, upon relaxing in one of the state-of-the-art pods. "I know my clients are going to love these."
