Nicole Costantin has been appointed as the General Manager of Travel Associates’ new brand and product platform, ASPIRE.
Costantin, who has a strong history in the leisure, travel and tourism industry, will be responsible for developing, launching and managing a comprehensive range of curated luxury leisure products and client benefits under the newly-created ASPIRE brand.
She joins Travel Associates with an impeccable 30 year history in the industry, most recently following a successful two decade stint at Norwegian Cruise Line (NCL) as Vice President of Sales.
Costantin started her career in travel as a tour manager for Contiki in the late 1980’s and now brings her accumulated knowledge and expertise to Travel Associates, with a clear focus on delivering growth to the business, securing new clients and retaining existing ones.
The ASPIRE program will form the backbone of Travel Associates own product range, delivering curated holiday experiences for individual Travel Associates clients, as well as exclusive bonuses and valuable additions such as guaranteed room upgrades, signature experiences, customised service and sought-after amenities.
Costantin will be responsible for the strategic development and implementation of the ASPIRE program internally and externally, and in doing so will nurture strong relationships with key industry suppliers to deliver exclusive, premium and differentiated products and benefits for Travel Associates customers.
At the heart of her skill set is a strong understanding of the unique needs of the ASPIRE customer, as well as an unrivalled ability to build relationships with premium partners – both important strengths that will help Nicole build on an already-loyal base and attract new business to the brand.
