The company first opened its doors in 1995 as United Holidays - a single business entity with a goal to be one of the leading travel and tourism specialists in the industry. Today, United Ventures has evolved into the Holding Company for 3 independent travel-oriented operations:
Our history dates back to 1995 when we were first appointed GSA for Passenger Sales for United Airlines, followed by Air Canada in 2001. In keeping with our goal to focus on representing the prestigious Star Alliance carriers, our commitment paid off with the company being appointed GSA for the Lufthansa Group which includes Lufthansa German Airlines, Brussels Airlines, Austrian Airlines and Swiss International.
Our focus is on establishing the brand image and reputation of these airlines amongst business travelers and a cross section of agents (large, medium and small) in this market.
Our highly experienced teams cover both on-line and off-line operations. The company is committed to the development of its employees and continues to invest in training both locally and overseas.
