Covington Travel Made #53 on the Travel Weekly Power List
With $106 million dollars in sales and 85 employees, Covington ranked as 53 on the 2019 Travel Weekly Powerlist. Many thanks to our staff and clients for helping us reach this milestone.
Neither the global geopolitical situation, nor jitters about the world economy, nor any other factor could slow down the 54 travel companies that comprise the 2019 Travel Weekly Power List, our annual ranking of companies with $100 million or more in travel sales.
Seven agencies debut on, or return after an absence to, this year’s Power List: Adtrav Travel Management, Balboa Travel, Covington Travel, Global Marine Travel, Hess Corporate Travel, Key Travel and Small World Vacations. Another, Lincoln, Neb.-based Executive Travel, just missed joining the list with $97 million in 2018 sales.
Covington’s key developments include the following:
â€¢ Expanded sales team to capitalize on growth in new markets.
â€¢ Completed Travelport Smartpoint deployment and introduced intranet informational system Insight to enhance agent productivity.
â€¢ Successfully migrated key systems to the cloud.
â€¢ Modified phone system to improve customer experience and developed new internal call reporting.
â€¢ Added new technology and personnel focused on helping clients better manage simple meetings.
