Flight Centre Travel Group to drive cruise growth with Traveltek

Firm will utilise Traveltek’s iSell product and cruise API

Traveltek has announced it’s signed an extended global contract with Flight Centre Travel Group to power Cruise for the company’s leisure business in some markets.

The travel technology provider will now be responsible for powering North America, Canada, the UK and South Africa as well as continuing to support the leisure business in Australia and New Zealand.

Traveltek’s Cruise API and agent desktop solution iSell, will enable Flight Centre Travel Group agents to drive the brand’s “ambitious” Cruise growth.

Agents will now be able to access exclusive deals from 30 cruise lines around the world in a single aggregated Cruise API. 

They will also be able to access Traveltek’s new Agent Connect product, which is launching to market next month in the US, for agents who choose this option.

Traveltek and FCTG have partnered in the APAC region for over 14 years but signed the new agreement in August of this year.

Cressida Sergeant, chief commercial officer of Traveltek, said: “We are thrilled to be a part of the next significant growth chapter for FCTG’s Cruise division and look forward to working closely with them to deliver against their ambitious targets and tap into the new to Cruise market which clearly exists. 

“It has been a pleasure to work with the team in Australia and NZ for the last 14 years and we look forward to supporting Flight Centre grow its Cruise business in other markets, especially North America, where we have seen real demand for Cruise technology. 

“We continue to heavily invest in our Cruise technology and look forward to further success with our Flight Centre partnership”
