NEW YORK, August 10, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — Global Travel Collection, part of Internova Travel Group, today announces a new partnership with Space Perspective that will allow those seeking unique luxury experiences to explore the ultimate frontier.

GTC Brand Travel Advisors can book their clients on a six-hour spaceflight that will take them on an unforgettable journey 100,000 feet above Earth aboard Space Perspective’s innovative and sleek Neptune spacecraft. most accessible, most sustainable and most secure space in the world. Instead of rocket fuel and high G-forces, the Neptune spacecraft is gently propelled by a state-of-the-art, 700-foot-tall SpaceBalloon™ for an ultra-comfortable ride.

“We are always looking for unique new opportunities for our advisors to offer the traveler who has been everywhere,” said Angie Licee, President of Global Travel Collection, the world’s largest and most sophisticated luxury travel agency community. “A spaceflight certainly fits those criteria. Until now, this historic opportunity has only been available to a select few. to our partnership with Point de vue de l’espace.”

Due to limited capacity, reservations are changing rapidly. Global Travel Collection, however, has secured seats for its travel advisors on three spaceflights, each with eight seats, which are expected to take off in late 2025.

“It’s exciting to partner with a travel industry leader like Global Travel Collection as we embark on a new frontier of space tourism and travel offerings,” added Jane Poynter, Founder and co-CEO of Space Perspective. “Our travel partnerships are invaluable, and we are honored to be able to make these flights available sooner to GTC’s discerning global clientele.”

“We’re getting a little closer to the outer reaches of space, and I’m thrilled to have Global Travel Collection join us on this out-of-this-world journey,” said Edyta Teper, Head of Global Business Partnerships for Space Perspective. “Working with GTC’s travel advisors, guests will have the ability to gain early access to these one-of-a-kind spaceflights and gain a previously unimaginable perspective on planet Earth that will stay with them long after they return home. .”

The flight on the Neptune spacecraft, which costs $125,000 per person, seats eight passengers and one pilot. Neptune’s pressurized and spacious Space Lounge is designed to dazzle while providing maximum comfort. The capsule has enough space to stand up and move around during the flight. Plus, there’s a fully stocked bar — with champagne for a space-side toast — and a bathroom.

Passengers will spend two hours enjoying the ultimate astronaut experience seeing the beauty of planet Earth from space before a gentle descent and splash. The whole experience will be captured with indoor and outdoor videos and still photographs. Onboard Wi-Fi will allow passengers to live stream their flight with friends and family.

“We are delighted with this new privileged relationship with Space Perspective, and it is only the tip of the iceberg for our advisors,” continued Licea. “We will also create pre- and post-spaceflight experiences for them to offer customers a complement to their unique journey. Our priority, however, is to ensure that our advisors have access to the latest space training products. and travel-related services to keep them ahead of the curve.”

For eco-conscious travelers, Spaceship Neptune is the first carbon-neutral route to space. By working with the nonprofit Cool Effect, Space Perspective has offset its carbon emissions in 2021. Additionally, the zero-emission spacecraft capsule is reused many times. At the end of the flight, the SpaceBalloon is recovered and recycled.
