Flight Centre Canada Politely Takes Over the Gold Coast

Canadians have invaded the Gold Coast!

Earlier this week, Flight Centre Canada descended en masse in Brisbane – gateway to the Great Barrier Reef and Gold Coast – to experience Queensland, Australia and get to know all about this destination to share with the rest of us.

It’s a tough job for our travel experts, but someone’s gotta do it.

After a 13-hour direct flight from Vancouver to Brisbane with Air Canada, over 100 travel consultants stormed the Land Down Under. In true Flight Centre fashion, our Canadian Flighties made the Australia evening news.

Travel consultants could be spotted making a splash, learning how to surf, meeting new koala friends at the Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary, taking in stunning city views from Burleigh Heads, and experiencing their first delicious bites of lamingtons and Iced VoVos (a beloved cousin of the Tim Tam).flight centre consultants at the beach

With Air Canada’s direct service to Brisbane, which debuted in 2015, Canadians can now fly nonstop year-round on the Boeing 787 Dreamliner. Brisbane is Air Canada’s second Australian destination which will now complement its nonstop year-round daily service to Sydney. ith direct flights to Brisbane from Vancouver, Canadians can explore the capital of Queensland and enjoy the convenience of a direct flight, just in time for the 2018 Gold Coast Commonwealth Games.

Crissandra Ayroso

Crissandra Ayroso is a copywriter for Flight Centre. She loves road trips, beach weather, sampling local wine. She, like Helen Hunt in the 1996 disaster-rama (that’s short for drama) Twister, is a tornado chaser, in the travel sense. She chases moments, all revealing. Whether it’s ordering room service and eating in bed, finding the highest rooftop for the best views of the surroundings, feeling like a small dot in the middle of the ocean on a boat, or getting lost and stumbling upon hidden gems, no moment is too big or small to chase. Just like the category F5 that brought Helen Hunt back together with her estranged husband, respected TV weatherman, Bill Paxton.
