Wal­she takes Delta

Travel Bulletin - - STATE OF THE INDUSTRY -

THE Wal­she Group last month con­firmed it was tak­ing over the Delta Air Lines gsa ac­count in Aus­tralia, with the sig­nif­i­cant win see­ing Delta switch from its long as­so­ci­a­tion with the Hel­loworld-owned Global Avi­a­tion Ser­vices. The move cer­tainly makes sense, with Wal­she hav­ing rep­re­sented Delta in New

Zealand for more than 30 years, mean­ing the com­pany has deep knowl­edge of the air­line’s net­work, prod­uct and ser­vices. Wal­she will base the Delta rep­re­sen­ta­tive of­fice in Syd­ney, un­der­tak­ing reser­va­tions, tick­et­ing, sales and mar­ket­ing, with ad­di­tional GSA team mem­bers in Mel­bourne and Bris­bane along with the ex­ist­ing NZ team in Auck­land. Delta’s shift to Wal­she looks to have come at a tricky time for the Hel­loworld rep­re­sen­ta­tion busi­nesses, World Avi­a­tion Sys­tems and Global Avi­a­tion Ser­vices. Al­though the com­pany isn’t com­ment­ing, it’s un­der­stood there is some sort of le­gal ac­tion un­der way and se­nior ex­ec­u­tives in­clud­ing gen­eral man­ager James Vaile and Gia Acitelli no longer ap­pear on the World Avi­a­tion web­site.
