Flight Centre USA Inc announced today the launch of its Corporate Traveler brand to serve the small-to-medium enterprise (SME) corporate market in the United States. The launch date of the new business is scheduled for July 1, 2011.

Flight Centre Limited, the parent company of FC USA Inc, currently operates the Corporate Traveler brand in its home market of Australia, and through its subsidiaries in Canada, the United Kingdom, New Zealand, and South Africa. Corporate Traveler serves small to medium sized corporations that generally have self-managed travel programs. As an SME travel and expense specialist, Corporate Traveler helps these corporations achieve cost and time efficiencies on their travel with a professionally managed travel program. Corporate Traveler will be a complimentary operation to FCm Travel Solutions, which will focus on larger corporate accounts.

“I am very excited about the launch of Corporate Traveler in the United States. Our research shows there is a large and growing market of companies who self-manage their travel through online travel companies and who do not know the benefits of a managed travel program. We look forward to presenting our new product offering to these companies and showing them how to save money and increase benefits from their travel spend,” said John Beauvais, President of FCm Travel Solutions, Flight Centre USA’s flagship corporate travel division. “This is yet another great chapter to add to our story of growth and success here in the United States.”

The Corporate Traveler operation will be headquartered in Los Angeles, California, and will have offices in nine cities: Los Angeles, New York, Chicago, San Francisco, Seattle, Phoenix, Dallas, Boston, and Washington, DC.

Additionally, Garry Sutton has been named the Brand Leader and National Operations Leader for Corporate Traveler in the United States (see separate press release). Garry Sutton is a sixteen year veteran of the Flight Centre Limited group.
