Corporate Traveller launches ‘CT Lifestyle’, a leisure service for busy corporates


2 min read

Corporate Traveller, a division of the Flight Centre Travel Group, has launched CT Lifestyle, a dedicated leisure service for busy South African business travellers.

CT Lifestyle provides exclusive access to the Flight Centre Travel Group’s strategic partnerships and global buying power for their clients’ leisure and bleisure travel. Leisure travel perks for corporates include access to the world’s most comprehensive choice of airfares as well as a range of tailor-made holidays through the Flight Centre Travel Group.

“At Corporate Traveller, we have seen that bleisure travel – the activity of combining business travel with leisure time – does not only benefit the business traveller; it also brings distinct advantages for companies. By allowing staff to extend their business trip with a few days of leisure, companies can enhance recruitment opportunities and increase retention rates of top talent. That is why we decided to launch a dedicated leisure service to offer our clients a one-stop-shop for all their travel requirements,” says Oz Desai, General Manager, Corporate Traveller.

Corporate Traveller appointed two dedicated leisure consultants to head up CT Lifestyle in South Africa: Michael Knott and Graham Cannings.

Michael Knott joined the Flight Centre Travel Group in 2013. His passion for and experience in leisure travel, combined with his meticulous nature and eye for detail make him the perfect fit for his new role as a leisure consultant and expert at Corporate Traveller. Having travelled the world, Michael understands the intricacies of arranging travel. He accounts for things he learned in his travels – from jetlag to missed connections and how to choose the best hotel room.

With an impressive fourteen-year career at the Flight Centre Travel Group, Graham Cannings has an undeniable passion for travel. Whether his clients want to see snow leopards, trek through Japan or have an unforgettable beach holiday in Mauritius, Graham’s motto is that nothing is impossible. 

“CT Lifestyle is a new offering from the corporate brand to give clients a one-stop-shop for all things travel. Michael and I will handle all the leisure needs of the corporate clients, whether they want a holiday with their families or simply add a few days’ leisure to their corporate trip,” says Cannings.

Desai concludes: “Offering travellers a seamless and streamlined customer journey has become a top priority for any travel company. We have decided to take this concept one step further, by offering our customers the best expertise in both corporate and leisure travel.”
