FCM Travel Solutions is the flagship corporate travel business of the publicly listed and globally iconic travel group Flight Centre Limited. Headquartered in Brisbane, Australia, the FCM Travel Solutions brand was launched to the market in June 2004.
The decision to adopt the FCM Travel Solutions' name followed the consolidation of various businesses within Flight Centre Limited's highly successful corporate travel division, which commenced in 1993.
From the mid to late 1990s, Flight Centre Limited aggressively grew its organic corporate businesses and at the same time made a number of strategic acquisitions to enhance the group's technology capabilities and strengthen its international market position.
By 2002 Flight Centre Limited's corporate division included seven different businesses, which in 2004 were consolidated to form FCM Travel Solutions.
The reach of FCM's global network broadened significantly with the acquisition of major travel companies including Sydney Business Travel (Australia), Internet Travel Group (Australia), Garber Travel (USA), Britannic Travel (UK), American International Travel in Hong Kong, Liberty (USA), Friends Globe Travels (India), China Comfort (China) and Air Services International (Singapore).
Since 2004, FCM has continued to partner with leading local travel companies to expand the company's network, which currently extends to more than 90 countries.
