DEC. 19—The Interior Department is implementing an online travel booking service for its 48,000 travelers, through a $60 million annual account with Omega World Travel of Fairfax, Va.

Travelers at some of the department's seven bureaus began using Omega's Trip Manager for Government in October. Full implementation of the system is scheduled for March 2001, said Goran Gligorovic, Omega's vice president of sales and client services.

Trip Manager's features include listings of airlines with General Services Administration contracts, airline rates under GSA's Airline City Pairs Program, government discounts for hotels and car rentals, government per diem rates and links to GSA's home page and other government sites. Interior will save money on booking fees by using the service, Gligorovic said.

Interior employees access Trip Manager through the department, he said. Other government employees can check out the site by going to and registering, he said.
