Who Ranks as Fastest Growing Travel Company in the U.S.?

Congratulations to The Air Travel Group Founder and President Eric Peterson, a 2017 Groups Today Top 10 Next Gen, and his team. The Air Travel Group recently ranked as the fastest growing privately held travel company in the United States.

In 2002, the airlines changed commission policies, causing a majority of travel companies to abandon their air programs.

Peterson, on the other hand, saw an opportunity.

In 2013, Peterson founded The Air Travel Group, a B2B travel agency that specializes in group and meetings airfare, with 98 percent of its business serving groups of 10 or more travelers. Today, The Air Travel Group has enjoyed a growth rate of 5,378 percent—cracking INC Magazine's list of the Top 5000 Fastest Growing Companies in the United States, ranking No. 63 overall.

"We have certainly come a long way," Peterson said. "Our growth rate is more than just a number; it's representative of thousands of hours of hard work and service. It's hard not to be humbled by our ranking in INC Magazine as the Fastest Growing Travel Company in America—we share our success with some amazing companies."

Due to the company's success, Peterson notes, The Air Travel Group is rolling out a discount international group and meeting travel program this year.

"Because of our volumes, we've received access to a private fare marketplace for international group and meeting travel. We are able to offer international group rates for as much as 40 percent off published and conventional group rates."
