GLOBAL leisure travel specialist Flight Centre has opened its first retail store in Hong Kong, with a focus on servicing the local expatriate market.
“This new store will bring a more sophisticated retail travel offering to Hong Kong and will be the only local travel (consultancy) with a focus on servicing expatriate clients,” said general manager for Flight Centre Greater China, David Fraser.
“The expatriate and returned overseas Chinese markets have been underserviced in Hong Kong in the past, so Flight Centre has positioned itself to pursue this opportunity and target these markets more aggressively,” he added.
The outlet features two teams of local and expatriate travel consultants offering native English and bilingual services, offering short- and longhaul international flight bookings, accommodation, tours packages, as well as processing of visas and other travel documents.
Located at 49 Caine Road in Central, the new retail facility is the third Flight Centre-branded shop in Asia and the first outside of Singapore.
