ACTA has announced an 'enhanced' partnership with AC that will see the 2 organizations collaborate on a 'Learning Management System' giving agents the ability to learn and gain accreditation on AC products and services.

Under the new agreement, ACTA and AC will work together on various travel industry initiatives delivered through the ACTA Learning Campus, Industry Events & Publications.

"This partnership is about an ongoing commitment to our agency partners," says Duncan Bureau, Vice President, Global Sales for Air Canada. "ACTA is a great organization and represents its membership very well so they were a natural fit for what we wanted to achieve. We at Air Canada are very passionate about the industry and we want to make the investment in our existing partners who share our passion, as well as those who are considering the field of travel and tourism through education."

ACTA President & COO David McCaig says he is encouraged that AC is taking the initiative to provide education to travel agents. "We are pleased that ACTA and Air Canada are entering this new relationship. Air Canada is a leader and must remain a key supporter of the travel agency industry," McCaig says.

"The airline industry is constantly evolving and it is critical for our members to have access to relevant and up to date content and education," McCaig added. "With the new partnership, our members will have the opportunity to be better connected to Air Canada and be able to offer clients a more meaningful consult and thorough support when travelling."
