Flight Centre has expanded its presence in India with the opening of its first travel store in the city of Hyderabad.
The new outlet expands the group’s overall Indian footprint to 17 stores, three of which are in the south of the country.
Covering almost 1,400m², the new Hyderabad store is located in Nagarjuna Circle. As well as flight bookings, the store will offer a range of domestic and international travel packages, hotel, car and cruise bookings, visa services and foreign exchange.
The new shop was inaugurated by Rakshit Desai, managing director of FCM Travel Solutions, and Shravan Gupta, managing director of Travel Tours Group.
“We are delighted to launch our first Flight Shop store in Hyderabad… and are confident of a great start in the holiday season,” said Desai. “Our excellent long-standing relationship in South India and our recently announced intent to acquire business interest with Travel Tours Group will create a viable opportunity for Flight Shop to raise the bar for our customer’s travel experience.
“With our new store we also aim to capitalise on the rapid and growing potential of travel, especially Leisure travel and fast changing demographics of the city,” he added.
Flight Centre’s Indian network now extends to a total of 17 stores across Mumbai, Delhi, Pune, Bengaluru, Ahmedabad, Chandigarh, Jalandhar, Kochi and Vadodara.
