Red Label Vacations Signs Deal to become 1st Canadian Operator to Offer Space Travel

Space Perspective space shipMississauga, Ontario-based H.I.S.-Red Label Vacations Inc. (RLV) has announced a sales partnership with Space Perspective to become an authorized agency to sell their products. The new deal will make RLV the first Canadian tour operator to offer space products, permitting it to "develop a new market and open the world to Canadian travellers."

"Going to space has been a dream of mine forever, and being able to offer spaceflight experiences to Canadian travellers goes beyond that dream," said Frank DeMarinis, CEO, H.I.S-Red Label Vacations Inc. in a media release. "We look forward to this partnership with Space Perspective and are convinced it will be a success."

Space Perspective describes itself as the world's first luxury spaceflight company. Escorted to the edge of space inside Spaceship Neptune's pressurized capsule propelled by a high-performance "SpaceBalloon," the journey is a six-hour ride described as "ultra-comfortable, accessible, and gentle." They describe their capsule as "elegant and spacious," accommodating up to eight passengers and offering 360-degree panoramic views via the "largest-ever patented windows." Explorers can soak in the views of the earth below and the dark vastness of space above aboard what they say is the world's only zero-emissions, carbon-neutral spaceship.

Edyta Teper, Head of Global Sales-Trade Partnerships for Space Perspective, said: "We are excited about this partnership. It's incredible to be able to work with travel partners and explorers around the world who dream of travelling to the 'final frontier,' and I am confident that we can give them the most transformative and curated experience of a lifetime."

Space Perspective is currently taking reservations for 2025 and beyond. The ticket price is USD $125,000 per person, and all ticket sales require payment of an initial refundable deposit of a minimum of $1,000 to hold the reservation.

The companies say more details will follow in the coming weeks.
