Paul Barry, CEO Avanti Derstinations, commented,
We chose Manchester because of its well-educated, well-travelled workforce,
We needed to expand the hours that trained Avanti consultants are available to US travel agents, particularly those based in the eastern part of the US.
Our Portland call centre, which opens at 6:30am local time, is three hours behind the Eastern time zone and two hours behind the Central zone, which are our second and third largest markets.”
