Flight Centre Associates (FCA), the independent travel consultant brand of the Flight Centre Travel Group (FCTG), will undergo an exciting brand refresh in January 2022. In anticipation of the launch, FCA has been renamed as Flight Centre Independent, effective immediately.
“Our independent offerings continue to be incredibly popular and updating our brand identity, including the new Flight Centre Independent name, is the next step in aligning ourselves to what the market needs,” says Chantal Gouws, Flight Centre Independent General Manager.
“Our customers won’t notice much of a difference as they will still receive the same expert, highly-personalised attention from their ITC. But we are working hard behind the scenes to offer even more value. All will be revealed when we officially take Flight Centre Independent to market in January 2022,” says Gouws.
“Flight Centre Independent offers 2 unique offerings: the branded offering where you will trade as Flight Centre and the unbranded offering – our ticketing option – which also provides you access to our exclusive land and air content.
“These two models continue to deliver ITCs and smaller travel companies the flexibility of running their businesses independently but with the peace of mind, support and financial backing of a globally recognised and secure company – the world’s largest travel retailer,” explains Gouws.
“We will soon be able to offer our ITCs both corporate and leisure content but will announce specifics when we go to market next year,” concludes Gouws.
Flight Centre Independent currently consists of 175 highly experienced independent consultants and small travel businesses throughout the country.
