First In Service Travel Adds Beverly Hills Agency To Network

by Richard D'Ambrosio


First in Service Travel of New York (F1S) has signed an agreement to work with Beverly Hills, CA-based Pat Walker Travel (PWT), a luxury leisure travel agency that has been serving the entertainment industry for about 30 years.

The agreement is not an acquisition, a spokeswoman said; rather, PWT will receive “operational support” from F1S.

Pat Walker sits on the Delta Entertainment Advisory Board and both agencies are Virtuoso members.

PWT has been the travel agency for "The Judge Judy Show" for 22 years, since the show’s debut, and has been the official travel agency of the Producers Guild of America for the past 15 years. This makes the sixth office for F1S, which, aside from Beverly Hills and New York, has offices in Santa Monica, Miami, Madrid and Bogota.

The role of the agent as post-sale caretaker and problem-solver cannot be matched by any known or foreseeable force in the industry.
