This acquisition further strengthens Adelman Travel’s commitment to provide innovative business travel solutions with personalized VIP services and to expand their vacation travel services into new markets. “Plaza Travel is a great fit for us because of their high commitment to customer service in corporate travel, meetings and vacation travel,” commented Bob Chaiken, Adelman Travel CEO. “Our growth plans include strategies in each of these areas, and our success can be attributed to the skill and professionalism of our staff, which is by far the most significant ingredient of a successful travel company.”
