H.I.S.-Red Label Vacations Inc. signs a distributor agreement with Space Perspective

Canada's leading travel group partners to develop a new market: Space travel.

MISSISSAUGA, ON, Sept. 19, 2022 /CNW/ - H.I.S.-Red Label Vacations Inc. (RLV) is excited to announce that they made an agreement of a sales partnership with Space Perspective to become an authorized agency to sell their products. This partnership aims to develop a new market and open the world to Canadian travellers. RLV is the first Canadian tour operator to offer space products.

Space Perspective is the world's first luxury spaceflight company, inviting explorers to experience a thrilling new perspective that only space can provide. Escorted to the edge of space inside Spaceship Neptune's pressurized capsule propelled by a high-performance SpaceBalloon™, the ultra-comfortable, accessible, and gentle six-hour journey redefines space travel. The elegant and spacious capsule accommodates up to eight passengers and offers 360-degree panoramic views via the largest-ever patented windows. Explorers can soak in the beautiful views of the earth below and the dark vastness of space above aboard the world's only zero-emissions, carbon-neutral spaceship.

"Going to space has been a dream of mine forever, and being able to offer spaceflight experiences to Canadian travellers goes beyond that dream," says Frank DeMarinis, CEO, H.I.S-Red Label Vacations Inc. "We look forward to this partnership with Space Perspective and are convinced it will be a success."

It's incredible to be able to work with travel partners and explorers around the world who dream of travelling to the 'final frontier,' and I am confident that we can give them the most transformative and curated experience of a lifetime."

Space Perspective is currently taking reservations for 2025 and beyond. The ticket price is $125,000 per person, and all ticket sales require payment of an initial refundable deposit of a minimum of $1,000 to hold the reservation. More details to follow in the weeks to come.
