Tayfun Gokpinar, Managing Director, expressed his delight with these figures and is grateful to the travel agents that they work with and to his “stellar” Wings Abroad team. “We are so appreciative of the support that we have received from the travel agents throughout Ireland, who are putting such a great effort into selling our product and work so hard on our behalf. To already have such a significant increase in sales on 2013 is fantastic and hopefully this successful streak will continue.”

He paid special tribute to his hard working staff – his team in the office and Thecla Lecane on the road – who have put in a great deal of effort to reach these figures. “I am very proud to have them by my side and of all that they have done to put Wings Abroad firmly on the map.

“Travel agents are so important to us, and that is evident in the very strong bond and friendships between the trade and my team.”
