Flight Centre launched in Canada in 1995, 13 years after the first Flight Centre travel agency opened its shiny, red doors in Sydney, Australia. Flight Centre Canada is headquartered in Vancouver and Toronto. We are Canada's largest bricks-and-mortar travel retailer, with 150 retail stores in British Columbia, Alberta, Saskatchewan, Manitoba and Nova Scotia. Our multi-channel distribution strategy aims to give our customers choice and efficiency. Flight Centre travel consultants ("Flighties," as we affectionately call ourselves) are available in person, on the phone, or online, 24/7. We believe this "clicks and mortar" business model sets us apart from our competitors.
We strive to benefit the greater good, whether it concerns our clients, employees or community. We achieve this in several defined ways. Firstly, we provide competitively-priced, high-quality products and services, thanks to our global presence and negotiating power. Secondly, social responsibility is a key component of our company's philosophy. Since 2003, FC Canada's charity of choice has been Make-A-Wish Foundation, which grants the wishes of children with life-threatening medical conditions. Their noble mission complements our goal to enrich the human experience with joy, hope and wonder. Lastly, but far from least, we take care of our people, as our numerous awards demonstrate. We were rated among Canada's Top 50 Employers for 13 consecutive years, and are repeat recipients of national awards that recognize corporate culture and workplace engagement.
Our distinguished achievements and global stronghold reflect Flight Centre's longstanding commitment to corporate responsibility and customer happiness. Guided by these principles, we seek to ensure tourism options are available for future generations, and demonstrate gratitude for client loyalty.

The Flight Centre name reflects the Canadian and British spelling of "centre", which our country of origin, Australia, also uses. For our presence in the United States, we've adapted our brand to the American spelling, making us Flight Center for our presence south of the border. The US is the only country that the Flight Centre brand is in, that employs the "er" as opposed to "re" spelling. Although the difference is minor, our branding in countries like South Africa, New Zealand and the UK use Flight Centre, not Flight Center.
