If you’re unsatisfied with how much (or how little) your current commissions are, you should consider working with an airline consolidator. The great deals they provide on airfare gives travel agents the power to mark up commissions. Imagine being handed a blank check on which to write your desired amount of commissions! If you’re ready to give your business a boost, tune in to this monthly series on airline consolidation throughout 2018.
Best Airline Consolidator
At Sky Bird, we are always striving for excellence, whether it’s getting the lowest net fares to our clients or growing our relationships with airlines. Last year at the 2017 Travvy Awards, we were pleased to take home gold for Best Airline Consolidator. It was an incredible honor to know that travel agents and industry professionals trust us enough to vote us into first place.
In 2018, we were deeply humbled to be nominated a third time. The Travvy Awards hosts and nominees gathered once again to celebrate excellence in the travel industry. We are pleased to report that Sky Bird Travel & Tours took home gold for the second consecutive year!
This award is a reflection of our dedication as well as the excellent partnerships we have with airlines, without whom we could not provide the incredible fares we’re known for. We are exceedingly grateful to everyone who cast their vote in our favor. And of course a big thank you to travAlliancemedia for hosting the Travvys!

The UK is also taking similar measures. While their ban includes six airports of origin, the number of air carriers has increased.
While the news is disheartening, passengers may have to find alternative means of entertainment. We have compiled a list of book recommendations for when you want an alternative to the in-flight entertainment.
