Two New Regions Join Flight Centre's Corporate Travel Network
The Philippines and Thailand have formally joined the fast growing global network being built by Flight Centre Limited’s corporate travel specialist FCm Travel Solutions.
FCm Travel Solutions is the first Asia-Pacific based global corporate travel and expense management specialist, and intends to compete head-to-head with the likes of American Express and Business Travel International.
The group signed agreements with new network partners, Blue Horizons Travel and Tours Ltd in the Philippines and KS&S Travel Service in Thailand.
FCm Travel Solutions (NZ) general manager Greg Hamilton said the new partners formed part of a network that now offers business travel solutions in over 50 countries.
“These and other network partners allow FCm Travel Solutions to confidently offer our clients a range of benefits including streamlined travel management, world-best fares of the day, unprecedented control of travel expenditure and policy compliance, and 24/7 emergency assistance worldwide,” he said.
“Asia Pacific is expected to be the world’s fastest growing business market over the next few years and having experienced network partners in the region means we can provide a better service to clients travelling there or based there,” he said.
Philippines’ partner Blue Horizons has nine offices across the country and a team of local travel specialists, who have built a strong reputation in the local market since 1980. KS&S Travel has been operating since 1978 and has six offices across Thailand.
FCm Travel Solutions’ services and solutions include advanced management reporting and analysis, independent travel advice, finger tip travel information, frequent flyer management, a global hotel program, total travel fulfilment (visas, passports, insurance, airport transfers etc), and services for the meetings, incentives, conferences and events sector.
