Top Flight Travel founders step down

Maria Baty, Managing Director of ALTOUR UK, is leaving the business after seven years, alongside her husband Barry.

The couple owned travel management company Top Flight Travel for over 20 years, a TMC specialising in corporate and entertainment.

The business was acquired by ALTOUR in 2016. Since then, they have continued to manage and grow ALTOUR UK.

Maria also represented the business travel industry as an officer and Board member of the Business Travel Association (BTA) for many years. 

She said: “We have enjoyed immensely our time with both Top Flight and ALTOUR, and it has been a privilege to work with such an exceptional team of people. We are very proud of everything that our team achieved together and will be very sad to leave. 

“However, it is the right time for us to move on. We would like to convey our heartfelt thanks to all those with whom we have worked and send our best wishes for the future.”
