FCM has signed a partnership agreement with Moonline Travel & Trade Ltd in Iraq, growing its Middle East & Africa footprint to almost 30 markets across the region.

According to FCM’s Managing Director of Middle East and Africa, Ciarán Kelly, this partnership is critical to FCM's local service delivery and market share growth strategies for the wider region.

“Choosing to expand FCM’s capabilities in Iraq at this time enables us to provide global coverage for existing corporate customers while meeting demand from multi-national companies requiring a true end-to-end travel experience when doing business in this growing market.

“Together with Moonline Travel, we are able to offer our clients access to highly experienced staff with deep local knowledge that complements FCM’s technology and global expertise. I am very pleased to welcome Moonline Travel to the FCM network and expand our presence across the MEA region,” said Kelly.

In addition to providing excellent services for clients locally, we are also excited to play our part in helping FCM penetrate this emerging market to further grow our collective customer base across the region.”
