At age 24, Nicholas Kontis, founder of Circle the Planet Inc. took a backpack around the world trip. Thirteen months later, Nick returned to his native San Francisco without a job in sight. Nick started the first successful travel agency in North America specializing in discount around the world airfares.

Seeing a need for wholesale air consolidation for the business traveler with exceptional service and superior pricing, Circle the Planet was founded in 2002.

Circle the Planet has partnerships with all of the major airline’s alliance including Star Alliance, OneWorld, SkyTeam and Virgin. We also work with premium carriers such as Emirates, Etihad, Hainan Airways and just about any airline on the planet. We offer the lowest net rates flying in first and business class. By using a group of travel offices worldwide we are able to secure local pricing often not available in North America.

Our team of experts has over 20 years doing one thing, discounting business and first-class travel.

We know premium and luxury transportation better than anyone. We build long-standing relationships with our core business of corporate and luxury travelers,  as well as serving the travel agent community. No matter the reason for your trip, our goal is that you receive the absolute best pricing with stellar service.

We look forward to building a long-lasting relationship with our valued clients.
