FCM Travel Solutions has expanded operations to Oman as it strengthens its presence in the Middle East.
The TMC, which is part of Australian travel firm Flight Centre, has signed up Omani firm Travel City as its latest partner. The move into Oman means that FCM now has a presence in 83 countries including 19 in the Middle East.
Travel City has been operating since 1989 and has 36 offices across Oman including seven business travel centres. The company employs a total of 250 staff and will be renamed as FCM Oman.
Ciaran Kelly (pictured), FCM’s regional director of the Middle East and Africa, said: “FCM Oman is a well established local travel agency with a long history in both corporate and retail travel,”
“The agency offers FCM customers a large team of experienced travel professionals, online travel technology and importantly end-to-end business travel management solutions.
“We’re very pleased to be bringing onboard an agency that not only has excellent local market knowledge and relationships with suppliers, but one that has many other travel capabilities that can add value to FCm’s existing client relationships,” Kelly said.
