ATPI has agreed a strategic partnership with a franchise network of independent travel agencies, Lufthansa City Center (LCC), to further enhancing its presence in the German market.
The partnership facilitates both ATPI and LCC in using each other’s international network of service locations when client demand requires a presence. LCC has a dedicated 2,000-strong team in Germany alone.
In April 2021 ATPI acquired travel agency Hamburg Süd Reiseagentur GmbH – also an LCC franchise – from Danish shipping conglomerate A.P. Moller – Maersk.
ATPI Global Head of Corporate Development Jeroen van Hest said: “This agreement with LCC provides ATPI with a stronger pan-European presence and increased profile in the German market following our acquisition of Hamburg Süd Reiseagentur last year.
“LCC has a network of strongly rooted partners in Germany and beyond, and we believe this expansion of our footprint will benefit our existing clients largely.”
