The Corporate brands of the Flight Centre Travel Group are celebrating today after being named in The Australian Financial Review BOSS Most Innovative Companies list for 2019.

The annual list is based on a “rigorous assessment process” by Australia’s leading innovation consultancy, Inventium, in conjunction with a panel of industry expert judges.

The brands of FCM Travel Solutions, Corporate Traveller and Stage and Screen combined are represented as Flight Centre Corporate in the Professional Services list.

They were recognised for bringing a revolutionary AI-inspired online booking tool, Savi and smart assistant mobile application, Sam to the Australian travel market.


Savi is an online booking tool developed by Flight Centre’s Corporate brands in conjunction with technology partner, Serko.

It is available exclusively for customers of FCM Travel Solutions, Corporate Traveller, Stage and Screen Travel Services.

Executive General Manager of Flight Centre Travel Group Corporate Division James Kavanagh said that Savi was created in response to the poor user experience observed from many online booking tools in the corporate travel sector.

“Savi was developed to incorporate Artificial Intelligence (AI) to create a smarter, better and simpler user experience for the business traveller and travel co-ordinator.”

“Savi was born in response to a number of requests from customers to better streamline their business travel programs,” he said.

“For the first time Savi is bringing a leisure booking experience into the corporate world in Australia and New Zealand”.

He said it saved their customers time with its intuitive recommendation engine and traveller engagement model paired with a wide range of products. including exclusive rates for corporate customers.
