Flight Centre Opens its Latest Store in York
Flight Centre has opened its 82nd store – in Parliament Street, York.
The store was officially opened by Lord Mayor, Cllr Keith Orrell, on Saturday (6 October).
The latest opening is demonstrative of Flight Centre’s success in the UK, as it expands its footprint and caters to every type of traveller, offering tailor-made holidays with unique experiences for everyone.
The store and staff offer knowledgeable and friendly travel advice to help customers plan their next holiday and will be welcoming customers through the doors of this new store.
Customers were greeted on the day by a friendly Flight Centre koala bear, and face painters were on hand offering fun designs for children.
Lucy Clifton, head of sales at Flight Centre, said the travel company had been eyeing a site in York for around three years.
She said: “With so many stores across the UK we felt York was the ideal place for our latest opening. One of the most important factors has been finding the right site, so we are pleased to be in the heart of York.”
Flight Centre is one of the world’s largest travel companies with over 18,000 staff and 2,500 stores across its leisure, corporate and wholesale businesses.
