Corporate Traveler USA Continues Its Geographic Expansion to Serve the Small-to-Medium Enterprise Corporate Market

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwired - June 12, 2013) -  Rapid growth for Corporate Traveler in the USA has seen the SME business travel specialist expand into four new cities and open another seven shops. Almost one shop per month has been opened during the past seven months with Corporate Traveler's San Diego operation the latest to be added to the company's growing US footprint.

Corporate Traveler San Diego is the company's thirteenth office in the US. This follows the brands move into Boston, Chicago, Dallas, Phoenix, Los Angeles, New York, San Francisco, Seattle and Washington, D.C., and most recently Denver, Houston and Philadelphia.

The operation has also seen growth across its established offices, with the addition of a third team in Boston and a second team in New York. This represents an increase from nine to thirteen cities and 16 to 23 shops, which equates to a 44 percent increase in the brand's geographic footprint and the number of shops.

"We are thrilled about the continued growth across all Corporate Traveler offices in the United States. The opening of Philadelphia, Houston, Denver and San Diego has made a significant impact on our national footprint," said Garry Sutton, National Brand Leader for Corporate Traveler USA. "Seven new shops in seven months is quite an accomplishment in any region, and we look forward to exploring Atlanta and Minneapolis next."

Flight Centre Limited, the parent company of FC USA Inc., currently operates the Corporate Traveler brand in its home market of Australia, and through its subsidiaries in Canada, New Zealand, South Africa, the United Kingdom and the United States.

Corporate Traveler's SME model allows the business to enter smaller markets where clients are typically entrepreneurial, spend between $50,000 and $2 million per year on travel and value a higher touch from industry experts. Corporate Traveler provides a boutique travel service which also allows access to parent company Flight Centre's global buying power, as the fifth largest TMC in the world.

The family of FC USA Corporate brands also includes FCm Travel Solutions, Stage and Screen Travel Services, Travel Associates and cievents.
