Bangkok--Feb 6--eTurboNews

With global travel industry leaders such as British Airways, Expedia, Fairmont, Kruger National Park, TUI, Raffles Hotels and Resorts, Marriott, Carnival Cruise Lines and Disney among the first to register their company's .travel domain names, Ron Andruff, president of Tralliance Corporation, the .travel Registry responsible for administering the domain, announced that 16,162 .travel domains have been registered during the first 16 weeks alone.

The revelation took place as Tralliance hosted industry leaders and travel trendsetters from around the world at a gathering in New York City on January 29 to celebrate the highly anticipated official launch of the domain.

With this announcement, the .travel top level domain formally establishes itself in the mainstream of the World Wide Web following completion of the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN) mandated limited launch phase. The limited launch period demonstrated that all systems are "go," which enables the fully operational Registry to now accept .travel registrations from the broad spectrum of the global travel and tourism industry.
