High Flyers Celebrated In Style

Media Release 16 July 2008

High Flyers Celebrated In Style

Flight Centre’s top achievers were celebrated in style at the Flight Centre Limited National Ball last Saturday.

More than 1400 travel agents, support staff, their partners and industry friends descended on the Auckland Showgrounds for Flight Centre (NZ) Limited’s annual awards night.

The dazzling event saw the company’s top travel consultant, Kim Payne, drive away in a brand new car - part of a total prize pool of more than $250,000 - and a significant slice of award winners earn a ticket to the company’s global awards in Hawaii from 19 July.

Achieving an all-expenses-paid trip to the global awards (called the “Flight Centre Global Gathering”) is the ultimate reward for a job well done for the majority of Flight Centre Limited staff.

“These awards are the focus of what our people strive for all year,” said Flight Centre managing director Rick Hamilton.

“For any Flight Centre staff member, whether they are a consultant or support staff, earning a trip to the Global Gathering means they are considered amongst the best at what they do not just within New Zealand, but out of all of Flight Centre worldwide.”

Flight Centre Limited has a tradition of investing heavily in the reward and recognition of hard working and high achieving staff, with monthly awards nights and national and global balls.

Flight Centre Limited is one of the world’s leading travel groups with more than 12,500 staff in more than 2000 stores and businesses across the globe, including Australia, New Zealand, the United States, Canada, the United Kingdom, South Africa, Hong Kong, India and China.

In New Zealand, Flight Centre Limited has more than 140 stores and businesses and employs over 900 staff.
