The Atlas Travel Story

In 1967 a young Irish Immigrant – Andy McKenna travelled to the USA and worked his way up through the ranks in TWA. At the age of 24 he set up Atlas Travel in San Francisco. Atlas Travel became the first Irish owned Travel Agency in the West Coast United States and for many years was the largest. Atlas Travel Dublin was set up to cater for incoming tours and outgoing overseas travel. Andy was greatly supported by many Irish Americans working within industry and was voted in as President of United Irish Societies at the age of 32 in San Francisco, this helped Andy secure a contract to do all Arch Diocese travel, as well as being involved in the setup of the All Stars GAA travel to the US. In the early 1970s travel to Ireland was affected by the troubles in Northern Ireland, Andy returned home to expand the Atlas Travel Irish operation and offered a broad range of leisure and corporate travel services including its highly successful sporting division headed up by his brother Frank Mc Kenna. Andy was devastated when he lost his brother Frank in 1989.

In 1977 Andy setup Irish Group Travel (with 9 other shareholders from the Travel Industry) and concentrated on chartering Aircraft to promote leisure travel to North America. Andy bought out the remaining shareholders and changed the name from Irish Group Travel to American Holidays. Andy Mc Kenna became the first Irish agent to charter flights offering discounted prices between Ireland and United States. This advancement in air travel and changes to air regulation opened the travel industry to a much greater market, and the Atlas Travel Group began to truly thrive. American Holidays became a very successful company, with offices in Belfast and Dublin, and over 50 employees. Andy sold this very successful business in 1994 and it became part of the TUI group of brands.

The Atlas Travel Group now consists of two companies: Atlas Travel Services, the parent company, which specialises in corporate travel and The GoHop Group which operates a number of leisure brands, including: Nuevo Mundo, Cuba Travel, GoHop.ie, VisitItaly.ie, VisitSanta.ie and more recently the introduction of the Safariexpert.com. Today the Atlas Travel Group, from its rather humble beginnings has become one of Ireland’s largest independent Travel Agencies, consistently ranked in the top Corporate Travel Management Companies in Ireland. Atlas Travel was awarded the Best Corporate travel management company in 2015 & 2016 at the Irish Travel Industry Awards, it won the “Innovation in Travel Award” 2017 at the Irish Travel Media Awards and was the first corporate travel company to secure a Deloitte Best Managed Programme Award. Atlas Travel Services also scooped the Best “Overall Customer Service Award” against stiff competition from over 140 markets represented worldwide at the recent American Express Global Business Travel Conference in November.
