FLIGHT CENTRE AND FCm SOAR AT WORLD TRAVEL AWARDS

FLIGHT Centre Limited (FLT) has won four major honours at the 2011 World Travel Awards in Bangkok.

The company was named:

  • Australasia’s leading travel agent
  • Australasia’s leading business travel agent (FCm Travel Solutions)
  • Asia’s leading travel management company (FCm); and
  • Europe’s leading travel management company (FCm)

Described by The Wall Street Journal as the “Oscars of the travel industry”, the World Travel Awards aim to separate the good from the outstanding and identify companies that consistently excel beyond expectation.

This year, 213,000 industry professionals from the travel, tourism and hospitality sectors were eligible to take part in the voting process.

FLT managing director Graham Turner said the awards capped a solid year for the company.

“The 2010/11 financial year was a memorable period for the company, with FLT achieving record results, expanding its global network and trading profitably in all 10 countries for the first time,” he said.

“FCm’s achievement in winning awards in three regions is particularly noteworthy and highlights the strength of the network, its people and its customer service and offerings.”
