‘Space travel agent’ launched

We’ve launched the world’s first ‘space travel agent’ service after an increase in enquiries from members of the public looking to book travel into space.

The first ‘space travel agent’ service has been created on our site in preparation for when commercial space travel becomes available to the public.

This comes after the announcement that the first space hotel is due to open in three years, and Virgin Galactic is continuing to develop commercial spacecraft.

The space travel agent will work in the same way as regular travel agents to arrange flight times, accommodation and entertainment packages for the travel into space.

When holiday packages are available to book, you will be contacted to discuss options and dates.

Kai Feller, co-founder of Bark, said:

“We were initially surprised to see so many enquiries through the site for space travel agents, but news of the first space hotel made us realise there is a gap in the market for this service.

“Being an astronaut is a childhood dream for so many people and while it’s not always attainable for everyone because it’s quite a difficult profession to get in to, this gives people the chance to experience it for a few weeks at leisure.”
