WITH EXPERIENCES


Dear Travelers,

The word for the year is most definitely “unprecedented” — by definition,

“without previous instance; never before known or experienced; unexampled or

unparalleled.”

I have heard and have spoken this word more than I can count these days, and

these have truly been trying times for everyone on every level.

There is no shortage of appreciation to send out during these times, and we want

to thank all of our health care workers, first responders, essential service providers

and all who have courageously continued working amidst this pandemic. Because

of these individuals, we can look forward to exploring the world again.

Over the past weeks, we have been gathering feedback, speaking with our guests

and reviewing the data from multiple surveys of our own and those of our industry

partners. This research has revealed a wide range of feelings regarding traveling.

While some are ready to get out from under their rock and go somewhere now,

others will wait a little longer, and some even longer still—but the consensus

overall is people are looking forward to traveling again.

Our world has changed and because the health and wellbeing of our valued

guests is of utmost importance, we have established new procedures for our trips.

This involves adhering to new guidelines and partnering with industry affiliates

who are proactively practicing extra sanitation procedures. This will be an ongoing

process that will be evaluated and tweaked as time goes on and we learn more.

Egypt, February 2020

Celebrating Othmar Grueninger’s birthday

social distance style!

Although our business, and the travel industry as a whole has been negatively

impacted by the pandemic; much has changed — resilience and adaptation

are the new reality. Going through something like this forces reinvention and a

call to action. This is not a simple venture, especially when you lack control over

your circumstances! We have worked with our industry affiliates and we have

developed our own Care and Wellness Pledge to do all that we can to keep our

travelers comfortable as we start to explore again. Details can be found on page 4

or at ambassadair.com/carewellnesspledge.

Though our actual travels have slowed over the past months, our travel planning

has not. We have been working hard on future adventures for you, our valued

clients. We are here for you when you are ready to go. Please enjoy this digital

version of our Trips magazine. Our team is ready to answer any questions you may

have. Just call (317) 581-1122 or you may email us at info@ambassadair.com.

We look forward to exploring the world together again!
