With these three latest members and one new country (Finland), the international LCC network grows to 230 members in 87 countries. 

 

As of January 2022, Globeo Travel Lufthansa City Center (LCC) in Paris and Congress Travel Service Lufthansa City Center will be licensed as Business Travel agencies. With these two new agencies, the international corporate travel network grows to 47 members outside Germany. Elämys Group Lufthansa City Center with its strong leisure focus, one of the biggest DMC in the region, will become a LCC DMC Partner and adds Finland to the LCC DMC network which now covers 80 countries. 

 

Tuomas Luukkonen, COO of LCC Elämys Group states: "With our LCC membership we are looking forward to enlarge our network and bring Finland as a destination more visible to the whole world. As part of Elämys group, the second largest outbound tour operator in Finland, we are versatile partner for LCC in the future".  

 

With LCC Globeo Travel in France, the LCC network wins back a former franchisee. Gregory Mavoian, CEO at LCC Globeo Travel builds on his existing roots to LCC and states: “With our LCC membership we aim at improving the service offered to our customers and bring additional expertise with the guarantee of high quality standardized processes all around the world. Since 2006, we have become a leading TMC in France and manage business travel and MICE for many French and international companies.” Vesna Miceva-Todorovska, Managing Director of LCC Congress Travel Service in Macedonia adds: “LCC creates for us a sense of belonging to business-look-alikes while expanding the knowhow, the knowledge and performance of our MICE and corporate travel services. Here we strongly build on sustainable travel solutions and look forward to enlarging our service portfolio with LCC on a global scale.” 

 

Martina Groenegres, Managing Director of the international franchise headquarters Lufthansa City Center International (LCCI): “This crisis re-enforces the value of a trusted brand and a powerful expert’s network with specialisation in both the corporate and leisure segment. Travel agencies seek a global reach. And they look for a robust and state-of-the art infrastructure with LCC as their perfect match.”
