5/20/2011 – RANDOLPH AIR FORCE BASE, Texas (AFNS) — The Air Force Central Ticket Program provides discount tickets to Airmen, their families and authorized Morale, Welfare and Recreation program customers at nationwide attractions and recreational events.
Discount tickets are available for purchase at installation force support Information, Tickets and Travel offices.
Sandy Hillard, the Air Force Services Agency’s community and leisure branch chief, said centralizing how the Air Force acquires tickets for attractions provides greater cost savings at ITT offices to eligible customers.
“We work with representatives from numerous attractions that Air Force personnel want to visit to obtain the best discounts possible,” Ms. Hillard said. “ITT offices also provide local and national destination and entertainment tickets for sale at discounted prices worldwide.”
The AFCTP formed agreements with nationally recognized attractions like Disney, Sea World, Busch Gardens, Universal Studios, Six Flags and others.
Ricky Sesco, the Air Force Services Agency’s Central Ticket Program manager, said his office works closely with all Air Force ITT offices to ensure ticket availability to the most popular attractions and shows that appeal to all segments of the Air Force family.
“We issued 391,578 tickets in 2010 and saved customers more than $6 million on ticket products through ITT offices nationwide,” Mr. Sesco said.
The AFCTP is managed by the Air Force Services Agency’s community and leisure branch.
