Flight Centre celebrates 40 years with 40 holiday giveaways

3TORONTO — What better way for Flight Centre to celebrate its 40th birthday than with 40 holiday giveaways?

Regarded as its biggest competition to date, the company is putting 40 holidays up for grabs to commemorate its 40th year. The global competition will award 40 lucky customers with a holiday from a total prize pool of up to AU$400,000. The competition is open to customers in every country where Flight Centre operates, including Canada, Australia, New Zealand, South Africa and the United Kingdom.

Customers can enter the competition in store, online or by pre-registering for Flight Centre’s new Travel Runway 2.0 virtual experience, set to launch on June 9, 2022. Pre-registration to Travel Runway is currently open and available here.

“Our 40th birthday is all about Flight Centre maturing into a truly global entity, so the scale of our 40th birthday prize draw and the launch of our bigger, bolder ‘Travel Runway 2.0’ virtual experience has been designed to reflect just that,” said Andrew Stark, Flight Centre’s Global Managing Director.

Stark added that frontline Flight Centre employees won’t miss out on all the fun as they will also be entered into a draw to win a holiday of their own. “It’s a small token we feel our people deserve after a whirlwind two years as travel booms once again,” said Stark.

Travel Runway 2.0 is an online interactive experience that allows customers to sample seven unique ‘runways,’ each of which showcases some of the best destinations and experiences in such categories as beaches, luxury, adventure, airlines, food and more. Customers can also view expert tips from Flight Centre travel experts.

“As the demand for travel continues to increase, we’re focusing on meeting our customers where they are, be that in store, over the phone or online,” added Stark. “We’re seeing customers who have never booked with a travel agent before coming to us. But it’s not just about booking travel. Our people are experts because they’ve travelled far and wide, and the Travel Runway experience is about sharing that knowledge and inspiring customers to do the same.”
