Flight Centre

Flight Centre can trace its origins to 1971 when two vets found a double decker bus in a field in the English countryside – Topdeck Travel was born. After running Topdeck for five years, it became apparent to Graham “Skroo” Turner that it was easier and more lucrative to sell discount airfares.

The first Flight Centre in Australia opened in Sydney in 1983, closely followed by a shop in Melbourne and Brisbane. The first Flight Centre in South Africa opened in Johannesburg in 1995, followed by a shop in Durban and Cape Town. South Africa now boasts 130 shops in all 9 provinces.

Flight Centre floated on the Australian Stock Exchange in 1995 with a starting share price of 0.95 cents that increased to a high of $30 in 2000.

Flight Centre Brand is now one of the world’s largest and most successful independent travel retailers with over 1200 stores globally.
