As one of Isreal’s leading road transportation companies, Tal Limousine already counts key government figures and airlines including El Al and Delta among its clients. Speaking to ITB Berlin News, Arie Linsker (VP Global Operations & Business Development, Tal Limousine) explains the company’s interest in ITB Berlin 2017. “My role inside Tal Limousine is the entire overseas operation, for both incoming and outgoing traffic” Linsker said. “Right now we perform over 15,000 monthly transfers and my job specifically consists of constantly expanding our network of worldwide suppliers, while at the same time engaging and signing new companies to serve for transfers across the Middle East and beyond.”

The business of airport transfers has changed dramatically in recent years, but the trends in this market are not entirely negative for a business model like that of Tal Limousines: “Consumers are slowly but noticeably going back to paying a bit more, to get more for their providers they use,” said Linsker. “Low-cost and truly cheap providers across the market might have seen their peak, as getting more for an extra dollar is now back on track.” Building on this optimism in the market, Linsker’s mission at ITB Berlin 2017 is “Expanding: North America and Asia are of specific interest to us during this upcoming trip. ITB is the #1 must-attend show in the world, and attracts many more attendants and exhibitors than any other tourism show” he added
