FCM WINS AUSTRALASIA AWARD FOR FIFTH TIME

FCM Travel Solutions has been named "Australasia's Leading Travel Management Company" by the World Travel Awards for the fifth consecutive year in 2016.

The prestigious award was announced at the 2016 World Travel Awards Asia & Australasia Gala Ceremony held at the InterContinental Danang Sun Peninsula Resort, Vietnam.

In front of the large gathering of industry leaders and partners, FCM was thrilled to accept the regional award again for 2016.

The World Travel Awards are voted for by travel and tourism professionals worldwide and this accolade recognises the commitment to excellence FCM has demonstrated over the past 12 months.

FCM Australia general manager, James Kavanagh, said that winning the award again in 2016 is testament to the hard work by FCM to deliver on their promise to customers in the region.

"This past year we have seen a significant focus to deliver and deploy market-leading technology solutions to our customers as well as our enhanced travel product range and I think this win recognises our innovation in these areas" said James.

"Of course this is great news for our customers because it means that we truly are delivering amazing travel experiences to our clients and their travellers."

Andy Jack, FCm Travel Solutions NZ general manager, says he’s excited that once again FCM have been honoured with the win, "to be recognised year on year for the exceptional effort and amazing service that our team has consistently been delivering is fantastic.”

“In line with our expansions globally, in New Zealand FCM have continued to expand our product range and to deliver the high level of service we are known for worldwide. It’s humbling for this to be continually acknowledged."
