FCm Travel Solutions Forms Partnership With Worldhotels
FCm Travel Solutions, the corporate division of Flight Centre Ltd, has formed its first alliance with a hotel marketing company, forging a partnership with Worldhotels, one of the world's leading global sales, marketing and distribution organisations for independent hotels and regional hotel groups.
FCm Travel Solutions New Zealand general manager Greg Hamilton said the alliance gave the company's clients a much more varied and interesting number of choices.
"Now our clients can choose from the world's leading hotel chains as well as some of the most desirable boutique hotels in the world.
"Our business creates measurable value for clients by offering the best blend of corporate travel services including a global network of local market expertise, state-of-the-art technologies, a flexible business model tailoring services for each client, and the global negotiating muscle of Flight Centre Ltd."
Mr Hamilton said FCm Travel Solutions was anticipating substantial growth over the next three years, expanding in the key regions of Asia Pacific, Europe/Middle East/Africa, and the Americas, by partnering with local travel leaders and bodies such as Worldhotels.
FCm Travel Solutions' 100,000 plus strong global corporate client base will also extend the marketing potential of the nearly 500 members of newly re-branded Worldhotels.
Worldhotels Asia Pacific Vice President Roland Jegge said the company was proud to have been selected as the first non-hotel chain preferred suppliers to FCm Travel Solutions.
"The alliance represents another significant step in our constant drive to increase demand for our member hotels."
