|FCm Travel Solutions has been named Asia's Leading Travel Management Company in the 2011 World Travel Awards. The new title adds momentum to FCm's winning streak in the 2011 World Travel Awards, which this year has also named FCm Australasia's Leading Business Travel Agent and Europe's Leading Travel Management Company (TMC).|
Described by The Wall Street Journal as the 'Oscars' of the travel industry, the World Travel Awards aim to separate the good from the outstanding, and identify companies that consistently excel beyond expectation.

"FCm's level of regionalisation is unique in the travel management sector. Our strategic approach ensures we can provide regional clients with a dedicated focus on their local requirements and greater knowledge of their local market, which is looked upon favourably by our corporate clients in Asia."
Rob Flint, executive general manager of global corporate operations for FCm parent company Flight Centre Limited, said that being named the leading corporate travel management company across three global regions was a tremendous achievement for FCm.
"The triple win is testament to the professionalism of our people, our high-quality customer service and broad geographical coverage.
