Support Skift’s Independent Journalism

More travel professionals get their industry news from Skift’s trusted editors and reporters than any other source.

Travelocity President and CEO Carl Sparks has left the company.

A spokesperson from parent company Sabre told Skift that a replacement has not yet been named. Sparks’ exact departure date was also unclear. The spokesperson declined to discuss the reasons behind his departure, referring to it as a personnel matter.

Travelocity became a de-factor marketing arm for Expedia in August last year when it agreed to let the one-time rival power all of its bookings.

In Q1 2013, Expedia reported that the Travelocity partnership contributed 18 percentage points to its air ticket growth, and Travelocity also chipped in 3 percentage points to Expedia’s 24% hotel room-night growth.
