Three industry specialists have been recruited to an expanded travel trade sales team as new Cyprus specialist operator Biblio Travel prepares its UK launch.

The newly-created sales manager roles are part of a pledge to ensure the business will be a comprehensive “go-to operator”, offering price parity while paying attractive commission levels to agents.

Louise Tansey, who covers the South and Midlands regions, most recently spent 13 years working with Bourne Leisure’s travel trade sales team.

Suzanne Arnold, handling the North, was previously business development manager for If Only Holidays, following a career which started with Co-operative Travel and included Disney. JTA and USAirtours.

Amy Power brings more than 16 years experience to cover the London and South East after spells with Travelopia, Specialist Holidays Group, First Choice and Unijet.

Sales director Tina Hodge said: ‘As we prepare to launch Biblio Travel into the UK market, I am delighted to have such an experienced team joining us, who are well known and respected throughout the travel trade.

“They bring a huge amount of experience, energy, and enthusiasm to the launch and this cements our commitment to the close working partnerships we will work tirelessly to create with the UK travel trade.”
