Omega World Travel Receives Award for Excellence in
Community Involvement Programs


FAIRFAX, VA – October 9, 2012- Omega World Travel, a fast-growing, award-winning leader in the travel management industry, announces today its most recent recognition, a Gold Award in the 2012 Magellan Awards from Travel Weekly Magazine. Honored in the 'Travel Agents and Agencies' category for its active community involvement programs and commitment, Omega World Travel joins an elite group of industry leaders who comprise the 'Best in the Travel Industry' as a result of its continued success, leadership, and focus on 'giving back 'over the past four decades.

Since the company's founding in 1972, community involvement and participation has remained a central pillar of its values. Omega World Travel's Founder and CEO, Gloria Bohan, has remained a tireless supporter of a number of community organizations within the local community around Omega World Travel's Washington, DC area headquarters, and the company also actively encourages community endeavors and support at all 100 offices worldwide. Through particular partnerships with Junior Achievement and Fisher House, respectively, specifically recognized in this award, Omega World Travel is making positive impacts on the education and financial knowledge of young people in economically depressed areas and supporting the large number of military families across the country in their times of need.

"We are absolutely thrilled to receive this recognition from Travel Weekly Magazine for our community involvement programs and partnerships," Omega World Travel's Founder and CEO, Gloria Bohan states. "Our commitment to community involvement and giving back to help make the world a better place at the local and global levels is not just a passing interest of ours - it is a central value Omega was founded on 40 years ago and a passionate area we continue to pursue at all levels of our company."

Travel Weekly's annual Magellan Awards seek to recognize the best in travel and salute the outstanding travel professionals in all areas of the industry. Honoring a broad range of industry segments including Hotels and Resorts, Travel Destinations, Cruise Lines, Online Travel Services, Airlines and Airports, Travel Agents and Agencies, Tour Operators and Car Rental Companies, the Magellan Award draws on Travel Weekly's expert knowledge as a long-standing trusted source for the industry to identify the 'best of the best.'  Entries were judged by a panel of top industry professionals from organizations such as Carnival Cruise Lines and CBS News' The Early Show.
