TORONTO, April 29, 2013 /CNW/ - Richard Branson's Virgin Galactic will soon be making international news with the first powered flights of SpaceShip Two, the craft designed to take paying passengers into suborbital space.
As one of just a handful of Canadians accredited to sell these flights (three of whom work at Vision 2000 Travel Group), I'd be happy to give you insights into who our typical travellers are and what they'll experience. So far I've sold tickets to 11 Canadians, at $200,000 per ticket. It has been a great pleasure working with these excited clients who know they will be part of history, being among the few ever to have left our atmosphere.
If you'd like a Canadian angle on this international story today, April 29, please email my colleague Natasha Rhodes (who has also undertaken the training) at [email protected] or call her here in Calgary at 403-777-0741. I will be available tomorrow at [email protected] or call me at 403-777-0770.
Looking forward to hearing from you - and safe travels!
