Flight Centre has launched its third TMC brand in the UK by unveiling Stage and Screen Travel Services.
The Australia-based travel company announced in June that Stage and Screen would be introduced to the UK market, alongside existing business travel brands FCM Travel Solutions and Corporate Traveller.
Stage and Screen, which specialises in providing travel management for the entertainment and sporting industries, will be based at Flight Centre’s UK headquarters in New Malden, Surrey.
Aisha Battersby has been appointed as the TMC’s UK general manager after four years with sister brand Corporate Traveller, where she was most recently head of client relationships.
The brand, which was originally created in 1995, currently operates in Australia, New Zealand, US and Canada.
Stage and Screen will initially work with clients in the UK and Ireland with “a longer term view of expanding its services into Europe”.
“Being part of the Flight Centre Travel Group sets us apart from other UK niche travel management companies,” said Battersby.
“It enables us to leverage the group’s global purchasing power and negotiate air and hotel rates that are exclusive to the entertainment and sports sectors and available only through Stage and Screen.”
