First .travel Domain Names to Be Issued Oct. 3
September 30, 2005 – The limited launch of the .travel Internet domain is set for Monday, Oct. 3, according to Ron Andruff, President and Chief Executive Officer, Tralliance Corporation.

"The limited launch is a significant step in the creation of an industry-wide infrastructure that will empower the broad spectrum of the industry – from the smallest to the largest players – to promote their products and services within a universal framework on the Internet," said Andruff, at a press conference at the 2005 PATA Travel Mart. "The limited launch will serve as a preview of the influential role .travel can be expected to play as a key influencer of future travel consumer behavior."

The limited launch will be conducted for ninety days to confirm and demonstrate that all .travel systems are operating and functioning as planned. This phase is a requirement of the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers, an internationally organized, non-profit corporation that maintains oversight responsibility for the Internet.

"The response to .travel continues to increase in volume and enthusiasm," Andruff said "Thousands of .travel registrants, representing virtually all components of the travel industry, from entire nations to individually-owned travel service providers, have already been authenticated and will be able to apply for their .travel domain names as of October 3."
