LISBURN based Oasis Travel is the sole Northern Ireland travel agency to be selected as a finalist in the forthcoming TTG (Travel Trade Gazette) Travel Awards.

Oasis, which is the current Northern Ireland Travel Agent of the Year, has been shortlisted in the Retail Team of the Year category. The company is one of six UK travel agencies and travel sales teams to be selected for the award and will attend the gala final in London's Grosvenor House Hotel next month.

The award recognises retail travel teams who have achieved outstanding success over the past 12 months, acknowledging how those teams have implemented innovative business plans and improved their product knowledge, customer service and profile building.

Managing Director of Oasis Travel, Sandra Corkin, said she was delighted her team of 34 has been shortlisted. "I'm extremely proud of the Oasis Travel team who have embraced the changes, worked hard and shown commitment to providing excellent customer service' she said. "We're a close knit unit and have worked hard over the last year to develop the business and further improve our customer offering.

"This has involved a number of changes, including the expansion of our Cruise Centre in Holywood and enhancing our 'Portfolio Suite' concept for luxurious holidays," she added. "We have also invested heavily in staff training programmes, educational visits to cruise ships and industry conferences, and marketing activity."
