Our Commitment to Reconciliation
February 15, 2022

Artwork: Sea to the Land by Natalie Booth We acknowledge the traditional owners of country throughout Australia and recognise their ongoing connection to land, waters and communities. We pay our respects to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander elders past, present and future, and support the continuation of cultural, spiritual and educational practices.  Our Vision for Reconciliation Flight Centre Travel Group is a unique, Australian-born company dedicated to diversity and inclusion. Our Global HQ is on Yuggera Country.    We take pride in being able to showcase Australia to those who want to see it. Our role, as Australia’s largest travel retailer, includes the responsibility of ensuring we do our part to respect the sacred nature of these lands, educate our people and customers, and continue to walk alongside the Traditional Owners of the Lands. Our Reconciliation Action Plan Since 2006, Reconciliation Action Plans (RAPs) have enabled organisations to sustainably and strategically take meaningful action to advance reconciliation. RAPs are based around the core pillars of relationships, respect and opportunities to provide tangible and substantive benefits for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples.     The four RAP types – Reflect, Innovate, Stretch and Elevate – allow organisations to continuously develop and evolve their reconciliation commitments. Our Innovate RAP runs for two years and outlines actions for achieving our vision for reconciliation. Through the initiatives showcased in our Innovate RAP, we hope to create educated teams who understand the importance of reconciliation, to see our people develop strong relationships with all Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples and communities, develop collaborative initiatives that support needs in Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities and collectively celebrate the traditions and journey of our First Nations People.  DOWNLOAD OUR RECONCILIATION PLAN    

FC Foundation. Flight Centre Travel Group
Flight Centre Foundation out of hibernation
October 7, 2021

W today unveiled a new grants program for eligible Australian charities, with $90,000 to be distributed among three charities before Christmas.  This is the Australian travel retailer’s first charitable commitment post-pandemic and follows recovery efforts gaining momentum and projections of a return to profitability during FY22.  The Flight Centre Foundation is funded through Workplace Giving and roughly 36% of the employees make a regular, monthly contribution. Under the new Giving Grants program, funds will be distributed as three grants each totalling $30,000.   FLT’s Australian MD, James Kavanagh, said the three grants would ultimately be decided by the company’s people.     “We’ll put a shortlist of applicants to a vote for our 3,900 people across our Australian businesses.  “This is only made possible through the commitment of our people to generously support Australian charities through workplace giving so we want them to have the final say in how their contributions will make the biggest impact,” he said.     Kavanagh said charities will need to showcase how their goals are aligned to the core values of the Flight Centre Foundation.  “We’re looking to fund projects that support our three principles areas of concern: Care, Crisis and Climate,” he said.     “The Flight Centre Foundation has been a much-loved initiative of our people for many years so we are proud to see its evolution continue into 2022 and beyond.”   For more information on the Flight Centre Foundation’s Giving Grants Program, visit fcfoundation.org.au  For more information about the program please visit the FC Foundation website.
