London, UK, 03rd July 2020 – June has been an extremely busy month for GATE8 having welcomed five TMC’s to their affiliate programme, with MIDAS Travel Management being the very latest to join.
In response to the current Covid-19 pandemic GATE8 Luggage has launched a range of fully tested and certified Traveller Hygiene Kits. The kits contain the required PPE and hygiene products to ensure that travellers can confidently meet both the regulatory and safety recommendations currently associated with air and rail travel.
MIDAS recently conducted a survey with a selection of their clients including travel arrangers, who confirmed that traveller safety post-Covid-19 was of paramount importance. MIDAS are excited to be working in partnership with GATE8 as a result of the feedback received to ensure that they can offer clients access to the kits as part of their service offering.
Nicola Cox, Director at MIDAS Travel Management, explained ‘Ensuring that we can provide our clients with the absolute highest level of support and guidance is a fundamental value at MIDAS. We have worked tirelessly over the past three months in response to the Covid-19 pandemic and believe that providing our clients’ travellers with access to PPE packs is an important part of our response. Traveller wellbeing and duty of care are at the heart of our operation.’
Alistair Callender, GATE8 Founder and CEO, added ‘We are extremely excited to be working with Nicola Cox, Glenn Watson and the team at MIDAS. With the government due to announce the initial list of air bridges imminently, it is likely that some travel will start to return this month. Although embryonic, it is the first step in the right direction and MIDAS are extremely well placed to assist their clients from both a duty of care and wellbeing perspective.’
