As the exclusive official travel service provider, AOT will partner with the World Masters Games 2017 to give Games participants the best advice across the many travel options available, and a simple way of booking either by phone or online.

Chief Executive of the World Masters Games 2017, Jennah Wootten, says the appointment is exciting as it will help inbound athletes make the right travel choices and streamline the often complex job of planning a complete trip.
