Letter From The Publisher

February means a great deal to all of us at Global Traveler, as this was the month we launched the first issue in 2004. At that time, a lot of doubting Thomases wondered whether GT would be just another publication passing in the night or a great success (as we always knew it would be).

A Lighter Footprint

United Airlines’ environmentally friendly efforts lessen the impact on local U.S. communities.

Letter From The Editor February 2012

This issue marks the start of our ninth year publishing Global Traveler, so I was delighted to learn recently that, in Chinese, the word for “nine” is a homophone for the word for “long-lasting.” How appropriate! Long-lasting applies to Global Traveler in so many ways. We’re still going strong, even in an environment of economic uncertainty. While our staff has grown by leaps and bounds since our February 2004 debut, our original team is still intact (and ever-grateful for the talented professionals who have joined our ranks through the years).
