Sky Bird Travel & Tours Celebrates 40th Anniversary

Airline Industry Guests Fêted at The Henry Ford

There was no more appropriate place to celebrate a travel company’s anniversary than the Henry Ford Museum. Retired planes suspended from the ceiling served as the perfect backdrop for the 40th Anniversary celebration of Sky Bird Travel & Tours, a leading airfare consolidator.
On the evening of Thursday October 20th, dozens of guests from airlines and elsewhere in the travel industry gathered at the Henry Ford. The color of the evening was red – symbolizing the new Sky Bird logo, unveiled earlier this year, as well as the Ruby Anniversary of the company.
For forty years, Sky Bird has been a trusted airfare consolidator. The company was founded in metro Detroit in 1976 by husband and wife team, Arvin and Jaya Shah. From these humble beginnings, Sky Bird grew to the award-winning company it is today, with offices across the country and two international branches in Toronto, Mumbai, and Manila.
Sky Bird Travel & Tours would like to extend our sincerest thanks to all who helped make our 40th anniversary a success!
