Company founder Gary Elliott is understood to have resigned from his role as Managing Director of BestFlights.com.au – now owned by Jetset Travelworld Ltd – this week. Mr Elliott had only recently relocated to Sydney from his home city of Perth. His resignation was accepted by Jetset’s new CEO Rob Gurney, who has instigated a shakeup of the under performing travel retail group. Bestflights.com.au is its flagship online product.
On its website the company claims that: “Best Flights are (sic) reputed to sell more overseas online flights than any other web based company in the Southern Hemisphere which is supported by one of the busiest travel call centres in the world who take over 400,000 phone calls a year.”
Best Flights also owns and operates the trading names and web sites www.bestcoachtours.com.au, www.bestcruises.com.au and www.bestadventures.com.au “which are all powered by unique search and booking engines”.
