American Express Global Business Travel (GBT) has announced the completion of the acquisition of SMT, a travel management company in Finland, from Finnair.
SMT had been an important part of GBT’s Travel Partner Network for 27 years and the acquisition will further enhance GBT’s service and capabilities in the Nordics.
Elyes Mrad, GBT’s managing director EMEA, said: “This is truly exciting for our business, and for our customers in Finland and beyond. Organizations and companies in Finland and around the world will continue to benefit from SMT’s local expertise, in addition to our global scale and access. As we come together as one company we welcome the dedicated SMT employees and look forward to achieving great things together for years to come.”
SMT was formed in 2013 after the merger of the two largest Finnish-owned business travel agencies, Area Travel Agency and Finland Travel Bureau. The company provides travel management and meeting and event services to customers throughout Finland. It has consistently adopted a customer-centric approach to business and is driven by a passion for delivering superior customer service, underpinned by its profound knowledge of the Finnish marketplace.
