Flight Centre Travel Expert Signs for NZ Sign Language Week

Flight Centre travel experts are fluent in many languages including NZ Sign Language. Renee Olsen, from Newtown Flight Centre in Wellington is one such travel expert. Ms Olsen learnt NZ Sign Language at university and now uses it regularly to converse with her hearing impaired customers.

In support of NZ Sign Language Week, May 9 – 15, Flight Centre NZ has filmed a series of video clips with Renee signing about travel in 2016.

Ms Olsen says, “I’m passionate about all things travel and helping to inspire people of all ages, abilities and needs to explore the world is really special.”

During NZ Sign Language Week Flight Centre NZ will include a clip on their television commercial of Ms Olsen signing and post two videos on their social media channels.

Flight Centre NZ general manager retail Sue Matson says, "opening up the world for those who want to see it is top of mind for Flight Centre and to have travel experts that customers can visit in store and communicate with via whichever means is best for them is an important part of this."

Flight Centre NZ has staff in Auckland and Wellington who can communicate using NZ Sign Language.
