(PRWEB UK) 9 October 2017
FCM Travel Solutions, the flagship business travel division of Flight Centre Travel Group, has been named Leading Travel Management Company for Europe for the ninth consecutive year at the prestigious World Travel Awards.
The World Travel Awards programme celebrates its 24th anniversary this year and is acknowledged across the globe as the ultimate travel accolade. Awards are voted for by travel and tourism professionals worldwide and these accolades recognise the commitment to excellence FCM has demonstrated over the past 12 months.
Tomas Tachovsky, General Manager - Europe Network, FCM Travel Solutions commented: “We are extremely proud to win this award for another year. This is an outstanding achievement and testament to the exceptional travel management services, professionalism and value that our people provide for clients in Europe.
This year’s award is particularly significant for FCM as 2017 has been a landmark year for the travel management company. Over the last 12 months FCM has grown its equity owned footprint in Europe considerably following acquisitions by parent company Flight Centre Travel Group of Travellink Corporate in Denmark, Finland, Norway and Sweden, and Opodo Corporate in Germany which will operate under the FCM brand.
In addition, FCM has also pioneered the use of artificial intelligence and chatbot technology in the business travel management sector with the launch of Sam, a Smart Assistant for Mobile that supports business travellers with all aspects of travel via a conversational interface on their mobile device. FCM has also recently launched its next generation technology suite of interconnected business travel tools, FCM Connect that transform the business travel process.
“This is an exciting time for FCM in Europe in terms of expansion and innovation, which is part of our overall strategy to provide unique services and experiences to our client’s travellers, bookers and managers,” said Tomas Tachovsky.
