Our journey till now

Since the establishment of the Flight Centre Independent model in 2013 with just six consultants, it is remarkable to reflect on the journey of our brand. Our vision was to create a model that provided experienced consultants with flexibility, independence, and the ability to flex their entrepreneurial spirit, ensuring they have the support of a global company.

Recognising the rapid growth of our business in 2014, we embarked on a journey of significant growth, expanding our team and recruiting support staff to accommodate the increased number of consultants joining our brand. By 2017 we had 76 independent consultants.

2018 was a year of immense pride as we were honoured with the Top Independent Brand award on the global stage.

Undoubtedly, the outbreak of the Covid-19 pandemic posed unprecedented challenges for the travel industry. We witnessed the resilience of our brand as we welcomed another 53 consultants during this challenging period, fast-tracking various projects, and implementing essential tools and processes to support our consultants and adapt to the evolving landscape.

Today, we proudly stand as a team of 204 consultants, bolstered by a dedicated support team across critical areas of our business such as finance, marketing, training, and development.

As we reflect on our achievements, we remain committed to our consultants who are the success story of our brand and look forward to the future opportunities that lie ahead as we continue to evolve, adapt, and excel as the Flight Centre Independent brand.
