Established on January 2005 in Tirana, Albania under the name of Albania Experience, this company is now one of the most dynamic ground operators in the Balkans and Southeastern Europe.
AE was borne out of a rising market demand for simple services such as accommodation and ticketing. In the beginning, AE operated solely in Albania, offering mainly hotel accommodation, airfare ticketing and tourist packages. In just a couple of years, AE became on the main ground operators in Kosovo, Montenegro, Macedonia providing services to foreign tourists as well as the several important international institutions located in Albania, at the time.
Keeping up with the market growth and eager to satisfy customer demands, over the years, the company added many other servicesto its portfolio, expanding to more specialized services such as incentives, staff retreats, conferences, events, and more.
As true pioneers in the tourism industry, AE understood fairly quickly that Albania represented too small of a market, resulting in geographical expansion of the company to markets like Finland, Germany, Austria (in Europe) and Japan (in Asia). Successful in attracting and maintaining these markets, AE shifted its focus to the rapidly developing economies in Asia. The company went on to grow further and develop its business in many Southeast Asian countries. To this day, AE remains one of the main ground service providers in the Balkan region for the Southeast Asian markets.
Since the beginning of 2015, AE is a branch of Landways, ground operator in the Balkan region. Its extensive international office network spans three continents, including offices in Tirana (Albania) Ljubljana (Slovenia), Seoul (South Korea), and New York (USA).As part of Landways, the AE team includes more than 35 highly educated, young, creative, bright, multinational, multilingual individuals – fluent in more than 15 languages! – andkeeps growing.
