FCm Travel Solutions Launches In Latin America

FCm Travel Solutions Launches In Latin America

FCm Travel Solutions has taken another significant step forward in
developing its global reach by selecting Flytour not only as its partner
in Brazil, but also to manage its new Latin America region.

The agreement means that FCm Travel Solutions has developed a presence on
all continents around the globe in little over one year since its launch.
It also completes the global corporate travel specialist's move into the
fast-growing BRIC (Brazil, Russia, India and China) countries.

Founded in 1974 by current president and owner Eloi D'Avila de Oliveira,
Flytour is the largest ticket issuer in Latin America with sales in excess
of US$500 million, of which US$220 million is generated by corporate

With headquarters in Sao Paolo, the company has over 100 offices
throughout Brazil. Its corporate travel division is known in the
marketplace for focusing on service excellence, state of the art
technology, strong supplier relationships and a commitment to generating
savings for clients.

Flytour Business Travel has been particularly progressive in terms of
online booking tools including the development of its own site, which is customised to meet each clients travel policy

The travel management company's client list includes 3M, Areva, Avon,
Braskem, Canon, Credit Suisse, Ericsson, and Givaudan. Flytour Business
Travel also has some quite large onsite client locations including
Caterpillar, Deloitte Touche Tohmatsu, Scania and Wal Mart Brazil.

On behalf of FCm Travel Solutions, Flytour Business Travel will initially
sign agreements with six other countries in the region, namely, Argentina,
Chile, Colombia, Mexico, Peru and Venezuela. Flytour Business Travel will
therefore play a strategic role in Latin America providing regional
management and direction to these new partners.

FCm Travel Solutions Global CEO Anthony Grigson welcomed the new Latin
America partner.

This is an exciting development for the FCm network as it marks our
official launch in this region. Our aim is to be a world leader in
corporate travel and expense management, delivering exceptional service.
We can only be among the world's best if we partner with local industry
leaders in each region.

Brazil is one of the fastest growing economies in the world. However, the
business culture in Latin America is very different and it is therefore
vital for us to have the region managed effectively by a local leading
specialist travel management company.”

Flytour president and owner Eloi D'Avila de Oliveira said the two partners
shared the same vision of the future.

We seek growth in sales and productivity, we want to be the travel
company of choice in all continents, and we believe that the best path to
globalisation is through regionalisation.

As Flytour/FCm Travel Solutions Latin America, I look forward to taking
on the role of Regional President of Latin America, and accept the
challenge of developing a strong network of excellent Latin American TMCs
in order to satisfy the travel service requirements of our clients, as
well as those of the whole FCm Travel Solutions network”.
