Super International Travels Limited, a travel agency with branches in Lagos and Abuja, at the weekend, launched its website, www.wesabitravel.com, at a programme which held at the Sheraton Hotel, Lagos, amid fanfare.
Mrs. Mobisola Shobayo, managing director of Super Travels, used the occasion, which played host to the crème-de-la-crème of the travel industry as well as government functionaries, to thank customers, airlines and the travelling public for their unflinching support over the years.
In her welcome address, Shobayo said the travel agency had been in existence for 36 years adding that the company deemed it fit to launch its own travel website because e-travel and e-commerce had already overtaken paper and manual ticketing globally.
According to her, the founders of Super Travels had a big vision for the company, adding that she and her team, which conceived the vision for wesabitravel over three years ago, would not leave any stone unturned in taking it to an enviable height as a company.
“E-commerce has come to stay in the world, at first, we thought it was a joke but that is what is in vogue now and Super Travels has to key into it. We have been in existence for the past 35 years with so much experience, the website is a one-stop shop, with it, you will be able to make choices, the system will tell you the best and cheapest fare, you can also book hotels of your choice.

Also speaking, Chairman of Super Int’l Travels, Mr. Adejare Shobayo, said the product is mobile friendly, adding that a customer has full control of his booking.
“It is about best practices in the travel world and it is to the benefit of the whole aviation industry. You can book, make changes, confirm your bookings and pay online, it is mobile friendly and within two minutes of your login, you are done with your booking”, he said.
