Travelocity.com Inc. recently opened a customer service center in Clintwood, VA, marking the online travel agent's third such facility.


The travel site also operates call centers in San Antonio and Sacramento, CA. Both locations opened in October. In total, Travelocity, Fort Worth, TX, now operates 1,300 customer service seats.
