Honoring our past
In 1976, our Founder and Chairman, Arvin Shah, opened the first Sky Bird Travel & Tours office in Downtown Detroit's Booking Building. From the beginning, Sky Bird's mission was rooted in taking care of the customer. As we grew to incorporate innovative technology, expand services, and open more offices, outstanding customer service remained constant.
The last 45 years of success were not earned without historic industry challenges like the Gulf Wars in 1991, the tragedy of 9/11, and the recent COVID-19 pandemic. However, our dedicated team and supporting airlines partners maintain Sky Bird's mission to always take care of the customer, and that relentless commitment is what gives us the privilege of celebrating 45 years in the travel industry, and looking forward to many more.
Thank you to our partners and our team for celebrating with us!
All these years were successful because of your wisdom and contributions. You are one of the essential parts of our company. Wishing you a happy 45th anniversary!
I would like to congratulate you and the entire Sky Bird Travel Team on your 45th Anniversary. The 45th anniversary is known as the sapphire anniversary. The classic version of sapphire is a deep, rich blue—like the color of the sea or our planet earth seen from above. On this blissful 45th Anniversary, may you continue Sky Bird Travel & Tours' journey of success with pride and excitement in our beautiful deep, rich, blue world!!

After working for 13 years in this company, I can honestly say this is the most rewarding, growing company I have ever worked for. Happy 45th anniversary to the #1 company. I am looking forward to celebrating many more anniversaries.
Working for Sky Bird has been one of my greatest joys in life and it has been pleasure for me to work as an employee under your esteemed guidance. Happy 45th Anniversary! May we keep shining and glamming brighter than the past year.
It has been a real pleasure working with Sky Bird. All the management and my colleagues have been like family, making working at Sky Bird feel like home. They have always been accommodating to our needs and giving us space to work how we want. I wish Sky Bird many more years of success. Congratulations to Sky Bird on the 45th anniversary!
In the time I have worked here, the company has grown beyond my expectations and continues to serve its customers kindly and with respect. Sky Bird is also compassionate and understanding to its employees, and I am grateful to work for such a wonderful company.
In my 22 years of service with Sky Bird, I have seen a tremendous growth under the leadership of Mr. Shah. While so many consolidators either closed their doors or got sold, Sky Bird persisted to be there for its customers. Even today during this pandemic, the growth is on. The sky is the limit for this company. CONGRATULATIONS!
Mr. Shah you are fondly regarded as an ‘Industry Leader and Pioneer.’ The competition respects and envies your position in the business. Sky Bird Travel continues to firmly hold its ground as a top rated airline consolidator, steaming ahead successfully for 45 Years (and counting) thanks to your strong and insightful leadership. It’s my privilege and honor (for close to 20 years) to be part of the Sky Bird family and to grow along with this wonderful organization. May you continue to guide us to greater heights of success, with God’s grace! 2021 is indeed a milestone year in the history of the company. Together we all celebrate Sky Bird’s 45th Anniversary. So, Mr. Shah, HEARTIEST CONGRATS AND A BIG THANK YOU!
With respect and tons of love, Lal
