Flight Centre Travel Group opens first LDV shop in Toronto

TORNTO — Flight Centre Travel Group marked the grand opening of its first Laurier Du Vallon location in Toronto last week.

Flight Centre Travel Group completed its acquisition of 100% ownership of Les Voyages Laurier du Vallon (LDV), specializing in premium leisure and corporate travel business, in August 2019, wrapping up a two-year process.

LDV, a long-time Quebec-based family business, was founded in 1963 by Jacques Laroche.

The new Toronto location, in the city’s upscale Rosedale neighbourhood, had its grand opening Sept. 26.

Clients, suppliers and colleagues from Flight Centre along with LDV colleagues from Quebec enjoyed wine and appetizers while touring the new office.

Allison Wallace, VP, Corporate Communications & CSR, The Americas for Flight Centre Travel Group, says Flight Centre “is proud to have LDV as part of the FCTG family and with its 56-year history in Canada, looks forward to the future ahead as it next expands the LDV brand in Vancouver.”
