Flight Centre Travel Group (FCTG), the Australian TMC, has acquired Quebec City-based Les Voyages Laurier du Vallon (LDV). LDV was established in 1963 and has six locations in Quebec City and one in Montreal; about 40% of its business is corporate travel. FCTG managing director Graham Turner said the acquisition would fast-track the company's growth in a key global location. "Quebec is a large and attractive market for FCTG, but our ability to expand and grow market-share in this province has, until now, been constrained," he said. "By working with LDV, we will be able to leverage the business's local expertise, experience and linguistic capabilities to grow our presence in Canada's second largest market.” The acquired agency will continue to trade as LDV, to capitalize on the brand's strong presence in Quebec.
