For those who like to explore or like to travel, there is a place on Luke Air Force Base that offers military personnel and affiliates discounts on tickets, airfare and more.

The 56th Force Support Squadron opened an Information, Tickets and Travel satellite office Saturday at the base exchange to provide Airmen with a convenient new option to take advantage of what ITT has to offer.

“ITT is a travel service that arranges cruises, airlines and other vacation packages at a discounted rate,” said Roseann Wagner, 56th FSS manager.

The service also sells tickets for attractions in California, Florida and locally. The mission is to provide a full travel service for all authorized customers.

“The service includes family airfare, adventure tours, theme parks and attraction tickets at the best possible prices,” Wagner said.

Airmen can use the facility for more than just discounted tickets.

“My family and I used it for Disney tickets and to find information on all of the activities to do in Arizona,” said Master Sgt. Douglass McGraw, 56th Equipment Maintenance Squadron structural maintenance section chief. “The Disney program was great, especially for families. Having the information packets was great for my family to learn about the area we are living in.”

The satellite office puts ITT in a high traffic area.

“Having the office in the BX allows for us to be in an area where there is high flow of Airmen,” Wagner said. “This will make it easier for Airmen to find out what we have to offer.”

The ITT satellite facility hours are 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Saturday and 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Sunday.
