Flight Centre launches its first Travel Clinic at new flagship store on High Street Kensington

Flight Centre, the leading independent high-street retailer of scheduled airlines and worldwide travel services, has opened its first Travel Clinic at its new flagship store on High Street Kensington, London. The Travel Clinic will be the first of 20 clinics to open across Flight Centre stores throughout the UK this year.

The service is the result of a new partnership with MASTA (Medical Advisory Service for Travellers Abroad), an organisation which currently operates the largest network of private travel clinics in the UK.

Flight Centre customers will now benefit from an all-encompassing travel booking experience, starting with expert travel advice from dedicated travel consultants and complemented with a comprehensive travel health service.

Consultations with the travel health experts will cover tailored advice for travellers, including recommendations on vaccination requirements, anti-malarials and preventative measures. With appointments available seven days a week and prices starting from £20 per consultation, the Travel Clinic provides Flight Centre customers with an affordable and convenient health service to ensure their trip is safe and enjoyable.

The launch of the clinic coincides with the opening of Flight Centre’s new flagship store in High Street Kensington, which boasts interactive design elements, including LCD screens and interactive displays. The newly re-furbished store has been designed to enhance the holiday shopping experience for customers and to highlight the full range of travel products the company’s expert consultants offer.

Chris Galanty, Managing Director of Flight Centre UK and South Africa, said: "We're very excited to be launching the first of our travel clinics at our new flagship store in High Street Kensington. We have seen a growing trend amongst customers who wish to book long haul holidays in multiple destinations. The Travel Clinic has been created to empower these travellers by providing them with up-to-date health advice for their entire trip. Together with our Travel Butler concierge service, Flight Centre now offers hands-on support to our customers from the moment they book their holiday until they arrive home from their travels.

Our aim is to offer a comprehensive service that takes care of all the details for you, leaving you to look forward to your trip with confidence.”

The new flagship store will house each of Flight Centre’s product ranges: Flight Centre Widest Choice of Airfares; Journeys – long haul tailor-made travel and Escapes – luxury beach and resort holidays. The company’s stand-alone brands will also be represented, including: Flight Centre First and Business; Round the World Experts; and Flight Centre Business Travel. Covering everything from getaways and business class airfares to premium multi-stop travel and gap years, Flight Centre’s expert consultants will be on hand to cater to each customer’s individual requirements.
