Flight Centre Travel Group (FCTG) is one of the world’s largest travel retailers and corporate
travel managers, with company-owned leisure and corporate travel business in 23
countries. FCTG also operates the global FCM corporate travel management network
in 100 countries through company-owned and independent licensees.
Some of that strength comes from the
company’s strategic acquisitions that are helping it create innovative products
that meet the needs of both corporate and supplier customers.
In an interview in the PhocusWire studio

explains how the company is using its acquisition of
WhereTo in August 2020 to create FCM Booking, a proprietary online booking
tool now available in the United States and Canada with availability in
additional markets coming.
He also discusses how FCTG’s
majority stake in NDC-specialist TP Connects earlier this year has enabled
it to create a more modern retailing environment for suppliers and how its
acquisition of Shep
one year ago allows its corporate customers to create an enhanced user
Morhous also explains how the company makes decisions about
mergers, acquisitions and innovation. Watch the full discussion with PhocusWire’s
