Our journey began in the early 1970s when Graham ‘Skroo’ Turner and his friend Geoff ‘Spy’ Lomas created Top Deck in a small building with a double-decker bus called “Argus”. From this they had a great vision and an opportunity in the travel business; The number of buses grew and in the early 80’s, Skroo returned to Australia as director of Top Deck Travel. By then the airlines were at a good time and everything was given to boost the travel market.
The first Flight Center store opened in Sydney in 1982 and the business increased in the mid-1990s, when Flight Center was listed on the Australian Stock Exchange in December 1995.
The stock market saw Flight Center become the first group of travel agencies to be included in the ASX. This bold move was enormously successful and he saw that the price of the company’s shares closed at $ 1.23 after the first trading day.
At this time, the foundations and the success of the company were at a good time. Our Business Model, our main philosophies and the iconic Flight Center brand have helped shape a global travel group worth more than $ 20 billion today
Flight Center Travel Group has other travel brands globally that includes:
