Director Andrew Rowdon has left travel agency Kitts Travel after working there for 20 years.

The Association of Independent Tour Operators Specialist Travel Agents (AITO STA) panel member handed in his notice at the Pinner, Middlesex, agency, at the end of last month and is reviewing his options.

However, he has pledged to continue overseeing the release of the second AITO STA brochure in October, which focuses on special occasions. He said he is keen to remain part of the industry. “I’m leaving my options open, but my inclination is to stay in the industry as it is what I know.”
