Global Travel Collection to offer journeys to space

Global Travel Collection, a division of Internova Travel Group, has partnered with Space Perspective to offer spaceflights.

Last week, Global Travel Collection announced a new partnership with Space Perspective, the world’s first luxury spaceflight experience provider. This partnership will enable people who seek unique luxury experiences to see our planet from above.

Travel advisors with GTC brands are now taking reservations for six-hour journeys aboard Spaceship Neptune that will bring passengers to the edge of space, 100,000 feet above the Earth.

We are always looking for new and unique opportunities for our advisors to offer the traveler who has been everywhere. A spaceflight certainly fits that criteria. Until now, this historic opportunity has been available only to a select few. I know that many of our clients will want to sign up, and we are thrilled to offer this adventure to them through our partnership with Space Perspective.

Space Perspective’s Spaceship Neptune is an innovative and elegant spacecraft, as well as the world’s most accessible, sustainable and safest spaceship. Neptune is propelled by a state-of-the-art 700-foot-tall SpaceBalloon™ that makes the ride ultra-comfortable. Additionally, Spaceship Neptune is the first carbon-neutral way into space. The zero-emissions spaceship capsule has been reused many times. At the end of the flight, the SpaceBalloon is retrieved and recycled.

Due to limited capacity, space travel reservations are moving fast. Global Travel Collection has secured spots for its travel advisors on three spaceflights, each with eight seats, set to lift off in late 2025.

It’s exciting to join forces with a travel industry leader like Global Travel Collection as we embark on a new frontier of space tourism and travel offerings.

Angie Licea, President of Global Travel Collection, said that one of GTC top priorities is to make sure that their travel advisors have access to adequate training on space travel services.

Our priority, however, is to ensure our advisors have access to the latest training on space travel-related products and services to keep them ahead of the curve.

According to Edyta Teper, Head of Global Sales-Trade Partnerships for Space Perspective, GTC travel advisors help clients have early access to spaceflights and get a “previously unimaginable perspective on Planet Earth that will stay with them long after they return home.”

The space flight costs $125,000 per passenger. The spaceship’s pressurized, roomy Space Lounge provided maximum comfort. It’s big enough to get up and move around during the flight. Moreover, the spacecraft has a fully stocked bar (with champagne for a toast), a bathroom, and onboard WiFi.

Passengers will spend two hours at the edge of space before descending back on Planet Earth. The experience will be captured with both interior and exterior video and photographs.
