While you desperately prayed someone would deliver you your morning coffee, we imagine the Helloworld Travel team were celebrating over champagne after buying another business.

Helloworld Travel completed the acquisition of Flight Systems Pty Ltd. today, less than a month after unveiling plans to purchase the flight booking technology business.

As part of the acquisition, Helloworld Travel now has access to technology capable of providing traditional Agents with 24/7 booking capabilities.

The move also gives the company’s customers added flexibility by providing them with extended online travel services.

“[We] look forward to the expanded systems capability that will be available across the group’s retail and corporate distribution channels.”
