We keep our fingers on the pulse and ensure you’re up-to-date
Business travel is usually associated with traditional hotels, but recently there has been a slight shift as travellers seek a more relaxed, friendly environment in guesthouses and alternative forms of accommodation.
Hotels are starting to learn how to leverage supply and demand, a skill perfected over many years by the airlines, in order to ‘fill’ their room inventory and remain sustainable.
Recently, the South African Civil Aviation Authority (SACAA) announced CemAir had been grounded indefinitely. The airline, based at OR Tambo International Airport in Johannesburg, flies to Bloemfontein, Cape Town, George, Hoedspruit, Margate, Plettenberg Bay and Port Elizabeth.
FCBT has spent the past year laying a solid foundation to deliver a customer-centric approach to travel management. These hold the key to long-term sustainability, better business performance and greater ROI from business travel.
We asked our business travellers, travel bookers, and loyal customers how much they love our account managers and the service they receive every day. And the results speak for themselves!
