• The incorporation of the group into our portfolio of connected channels is especially important for Dingus Mexico.

The service growth strategy and consolidation of Dingus’ business model in Mexico, focused on expanding our connectivity for the Caribbean market, has just been strongly reinforced by the incorporation of Flight Centre Travel Group in our channel catalogue.

The group’s retail presence in the U. S. market is primarily based on the Liberty Travel leisure brand (one of the largest and most recognized travel agency collectives in the United States, operating more than 170 offices nationwide), backed by the GoGo Vacations wholesale brand. Its interest in Caribbean destinations and, more specifically, those of the Mexican Caribbean is widely credited, implying for Dingus a qualitative leap forward in terms of facilitating our management and greater projection in the American market.

The integration agreement is especially important for our customers and potential customers, as it is one of the main groups for the Caribbean market thanks to its travel operations in more than 90 countries. Flight Centre Travel Group employs more than 19,000 people worldwide and has nearly 2,800 companies.

It is worth noting that the arrival of international tourists to Mexico during 2017 grew at a rate of more than 10%. As far as the US issuer market is concerned, two out of ten Americans travelling abroad choose this destination.
