One of the world’s largest travel companies, Flight Centre, has reopened its store in Bath after it was closed due to the pandemic.
A grand opening event was held at the store, situated on Union Passage, on Monday 27th February.
The Mayor of the City of Bath, Councillor Rob Appleyard, cut the red ribbon to officially declare the site back open for business.
The store in Bath is managed by Monique Thomas, who has worked for Flight Centre for 18 years.
Monique started as a Travel Consultant in 2005, working her way up to manager, where pre-pandemic where she managed three stores in the South West.
She has now been given a newly refurbished store to look after in Bath and will be working alongside four full-time members of staff.
James Boyle, Flight Centre UK’s Head of Marketing, said: “We are delighted about the reopening of our store in Bath, as it is an important location to serve our customers in the South-West.
“This is a significant moment for Flight Centre as we continue our journey to reopen a series of stores across the UK. This store in Bath is the first of three that we will reopen this year.
“This store was the last one to be refurbished before the pandemic and offers a fantastic space to welcome customers.
“Just like Monique and her staff here today, Flight Centre’s people are its number one asset. I would like to wish Monique and her team the very best for the future.”
