South America is a key focus for FCm Travel Solutions, having signed with Brazil”s Flytour Business Travel in June 2006. ”Our aim is to develop a strong network of excellent partners across Latin America to meet the growing travel demands of corporates in this region, with localised service as our priority,” said Grigson.
”Like Brazil, the Argentine and Mexican cultures are quite distinctive and require experienced, on-the-ground travel specialists who understand the local travel industry and business market.”
