FCM Named Asia’s Leading Travel Management Company for Seventh Consecutive Year
OCTOBER 19, 2021
FCM, the flagship business travel arm of Flight Centre Travel Group, has been named Asia’s leading travel management company for the seventh consecutive year in the World Travel Awards.
World Travel Awards™ was established in 1993 to acknowledge, reward and celebrate excellence across all key sectors of the travel, tourism and hospitality industries. Now in its 28th year, the award is recognised globally as the ultimate hallmark of industry excellence. Awards are voted for by travel and tourism professionals, media and consumers worldwide and the accolade for Asia’s Leading Travel Management Company recognises the commitment to excellence FCM has demonstrated over the past 12 months.
The dynamic transformation of the corporate travel industry caused by the global pandemic has heightened the demand on firms to remain agile and innovative in order to survive. Not only has FCM proved to be resilient, it has also thrived over the last 18 months.
During this period, it won and implemented a record amount of new businesses globally. 2021 also saw FCM transform its brand identity, as well as develop a new global technology platform which was adapted and launched as a Chinese platform that specifically addressed the needs of the customers in China. Last month, it announced its expansion into Japan, the world’s fourth largest corporate travel market through a joint venture with NSF-Engagement.
It’s especially meaningful for us to be recognised this year as Asia’s leading TMC because the adversity has brought out the resilience and the best of who we are as a company. It has reinforced the commitment we have given to our clients, to be with them in good times and to support them through the challenging. Most importantly, it is a testament to the outstanding job our people have done in keeping our customers closely connected with the company and ensuring that FCM will be there to journey with the travellers when the world re-opens and the travel industry recovers.
