FCm Travel Solutions has strengthened its European network by signing a partnership arrangement with Alive, a travel company based in Portugal, with operations in Portugal, Spain, Brazil and Angola.

As part of the arrangement FCm will add two new business travel centres in Portugal to its global operation, including one in Lisboa and another in Porto.

The Alive travel brand is an affiliate company of OnTourism Capital Investments, which represents the corporate and business travel branch of GeoWinds SGPS Holding.

FCms new travel teams in Portugal offer clients an end-to-end corporate travel management service and cutting-edge travel technologies for online booking, policy compliance and expense management. Alive also specialises in incentive travel, meetings and incentive consulting management and group travel for sports events.

General manager of FCms European network, Franziskus Bumm, said the addition to FCms global network would boost the companys local expertise and travel management capabilities in the region.

Our new partner is very focused on technology solutions and providing personal service from travel teams that are highly experienced in managing travel programs for companies of all sizes including multinational clients. Alive offers a broad range of technology solutions for end-to-end corporate travel management. These attributes are highly regarded by FCm as it demonstrates both companies have operational, service and management synergies, Franziskus said.

Alive CEO Pedro de S Barros added, This partnership offers mutual benefits for both Alive and FCm, in that our clients will be able to tap into the global strength of FCm, while our Portugese teams can provide a new level of regional support to FCms existing clients that are travelling to South Western Europe. The exposure to FCms global trading environment will deliver new efficiencies for our customers and were looking forward to working with FCm as part of its global family.
