FCm Travel Solutions, the corporate travel management division of Flight Centre Travel Group, has acquired its partner company in Ireland, Travelplan Corporate Ltd, from the Abbey Travel Group for an undisclosed amount.
Abbey Travel’s business travel division has traded as FCm Travel Solutions since 2005, having been their partner company in Ireland and part of FCm’s global travel management network.
There will be no change in the management and staff of the Dublin office, which currently employs 50 people. Valerie Metcalfe will continue as Managing Director and all staff of the Dublin office will retain their jobs. The company’s five-year business plan includes significant growth, further developments of key technology, and the provision of additional jobs.
Flight Centre Travel Group has headquarters in Brisbane, Australia, and is a listed company on the Australia Stock Exchange.
This does not affect Abbey Travel, which will continue in business as an exclusively leisure and sports travel company.
