Gloria’s Corner: How Omega Handles Weather-Related Emergencies

Facing the ‘Blizzard’ of 2016 caused a mix of emotions in travelers; frustration, anxiety, fear and uncertainty- to name a few. Fortunately for Omega travelers, Omega’s team was right there to lend a helping hand to fix itinerary changes, rebookings, hotel accommodations and the like.

Omega World Travel is highly experienced in handling crises of all different natures. We have provided client emergency support during terrorist attacks (9/11, Indonesia and Paris), hurricanes (Katrina, Rita, Ike, Andrew and Isabel), and military operations (Desert Storm and Iraqi Freedom). In the recent snowstorm of 2016, Jonas, Omega staff was on-call once again. Our 24/7 staff emergency team was, like so many times before, there to handle travelers’ changed agendas swiftly and seamlessly. Omega agents contacted airlines and sorted through any changes necessary, in order to cancel or rebook impacted travel.

Being in the industry for 44 years, I know what really goes on behind the scenes at Omega. I am very happy with the superb service that Omega agents achieved during Snowstorm Jonas. Omega was able to provide a hardworking and dedicated Emergency Service Center team whom remained on-duty throughout the entire event. The team worked tirelessly, willing to take on extra shifts as needed.

Clients were pleased with the assistance that they received despite the dreadful weather. Agents remained on-call and provided our clients with first-rate service. I want to thank my team and encourage them to keep up the excellent attitudes, as well as exceptional and always professional service!

I am not the only one who recognizes the terrific job that the Emergency Service Center does. Here are some examples of Omega’s excellent service in both non-emergency and emergency circumstances illustrated in kudos from our clients:

“I wanted to take a minute to express my sincere appreciation for [your travel consultant.] On a day when I know your agents are busier than even usual with the bad weather on the east coast, [his] professionalism, efficiency and customer service was beyond reproach.

Due to the weather, I had to make several changes to two travelers’ already complex itineraries.  He quickly grasped what I was trying to do and organized the changes in an expedient order.  After dealing with the airlines and hotels involved, he went over the entire itinerary for both travelers with me to ensure that everything was correct.  Every detail was perfect.

I not only appreciate [your agent’s] expertise, but I truly appreciate his extraordinary customer services skills.  He is a true asset to Omega World Travel.”

“… I wanted to drop you a quick note to let you know how happy I am with [travel consultant] service. She is wonderful…[She] is very competent, knows the ins and outs of the airlines to give me tips, she knows our profiles and employees preferences and she is fast she returns all my calls as soon as possible. [She] seems to never be off work and when she is scheduled off she lets me know so I feel like she is always there for [our company], [She is a] great communicator. You have an asset at the company that is worth keeping and I hope she stays with you (and me) for a long time.  Thank you for the service you provide.”
