Airbnb’s new corporate travel partnership with Flight Centre will give the agency’s business travellers access to booking Airbnb properties directly with Flight Centre, as it rolls out via FC’s Campus Travel and Stage and Screen services first, followed by its FCm Travel Solutions and Corporate Traveller divisions.
Flight Centre’s executive gm of corporate travel, Andrew Flannery, told The Australian Financial Review that the partnership was inked after Flight Centre ran a trial with one of its largest corporate travel clients.
“For the trial, the company had people going overseas for extended periods of time and this enhanced the overall travel experience,” Flannery, said.
“Especially for large travel clients where employees have longer stays, they want to be able to live like a local.”
