About Jetwing Eco Holidays:
Jetwing Eco Holidays was created to cater to specialist travelers and small, specialist tour operators who would think that a big travel company has no time for them.
Eco Holidays operates as a small group with a dedicated operations team in the office and a team of near-fanatic wildlife enthusiasts as its field staff. There are always two or three people in the office to answer your e-mails.
Eco Holidays is run as a small company, as with most specialist companies in the world. Nevertheless, Jetwing Eco Holidays benefits immensely by being a part of Jetwing, one of the largest tourism brands in Sri Lanka. Eco Holidays benefits from the Jetwing investment in sectors like IT, Operations, HR and Marketing, and is able to pass these benefits onto its clients at a fraction of the cost it would incur as a stand-alone company.
The Jetwing family of companies includes Jetwing Travels and Jetwing Hotels which have both established themselves as 'Blue Chip' companies in the travel and hospitality industry in Sri Lanka. With decades of experience, Jetwing companies can make the difference between a satisfying trip and creating lifetime memories.
Jetwing believes in fair trade. Jetwing Eco Holidays is emphatic that it will not 'squeeze' local suppliers of goods and services for bargain prices. The prices of the tours of the company reflect being able to pay fair prices to everyone in its supply chain. We have a policy of paying all suppliers promptly without delaying payments to maximise interest income of ease company cash flows. It recognises that for small local suppliers prompt payments are critical.
Jetwing Eco Holidays also promote responsible wildlife watching practices; our suppliers are carefully selected to match these criteria and our naturalist guides have been trained in the field to ensure that the welfare of an animal or bird is given top priority at any given sighting.
A significant amount of time and the company's profits are allocated to being an advocate of conservation so that the very resources the company depends are conserved for future generations.
We encourage clients to purchase carbon offsets for their long distance travel. More information on Jetwing and the environment and community can be found on our website.
The Jetwing Eco Holidays Team comprises of some of the most experienced travel and hotel personnel in the country. The Directors are all personally interested in wildlife, culture and conservation, and attach a lot of importance in developing the company as a responsible, community-oriented company. The Directors and staff travel regularly within and outside Sri Lanka, and are able to keep abreast of changing needs of eco and adventure travelers. As the Jetwing staff have a personal interest in many of the activities on offer, clients can expect a high degree of empathy.
As they say, it is all down to the people. At Jetwing Eco Holidays we have people from the top to the bottom who are committed to building a standard setting eco-tourism experience.
