Pan Tours Hawaii and Panda Group Travel
Panda Group was founded in 1978 by Jack Tsui, with the startup of Pan Tours Hawaii, an air consolidator specializing in wholesale ticketing to travel agencies throughout the state. Three years later Panda Travel® was created as a retail outlet. From the beginning, Panda Group businesses operated under a philosophy of customer care and attention to detail, as well as providing the best travel deals possible. As a result, Panda Group has become a leader in the Hawaii travel market, supplying travel to independent leisure and business travelers, to special group tours, to travel agencies, commercial and corporate accounts. Currently, the Panda Group includes: Panda Travel®, with a staff of experienced travel professionals responsible for ticketing more than one million passengers annually; pandaonline.com, our retail website; Pantours.net, our agent website for wholesale ticketing and packaging; numerous online affiliates; and an online travel services support staff.
Our Travel Agent Booking Engine
The founders of Pan Tours responded to the emergence of the online travel market in the early 90’s by creating Get2Hawaii, a travel software development company that that offers innovative online booking engine solutions to airlines, hotels and agencies. Get2Hawaii’ booking engine solutions allow businesses to: directly manage inventory, create and merchandise special promotions, adjust volume and margins based on market conditions, and partner directly with other businesses to create custom vacations. Today, Pan Tours deploys Get2Hawaii’s AgentDirect product as its online solution for wholesaling travel products and services to other travel agencies as well as provides agencies with the capabilities to self-manage their pricing and mark-ups.
