Tico Travel Agency Joins British Conglomerate

April 20, 2007

British travel conglomerate Hogg Robinson Group (HRG) recently announced a new affiliation with Rutas Aereas, a Costa Rica-based travel agency that deals in both private and corporate travel planning.

The new affiliation will allow Rutas Aereas to help coordinate travel for HRG clients – including lodging, flight and rental car reservations – throughout Central America. The united agencies will include as its clients Mexican bread company Bimbo, Goodyear and ATH, a well-known automatic-teller machine company.

The Hogg Robinson Group is a global leader in corporate travel and event planning with more than 160 years in operation – and service in more than 100 countries.

According to a recent statement from HRG, the new affiliation with Rutas Aereas means Costa Rica will serve as a base for arranging travel for its clients in the region.

“Costa Rica, with its stable economy and close relationship with Europe and North America, is a key market for many of our clients,” the statement said.
