Flight Centre Travel Group Limited (FCTG) has expanded into student and youth travel with the acquisition of Travelonomy Limited, the holding company of travel booking service Student Universe.

Student Universe targets students and youth, which FCTG said is one of travel's fastest growing sectors, with exclusive deals, including specially negotiated student airfares, and experiences via its website and mobile apps. With the understanding that this segment operates online, StudentUniverse has a proprietary technology platform that is built around a student/youth verification engine that allows eligible customers to access and buy flights, hotels and tours for verified students and youth. 

In addition, StudentUniverse has a comprehensive mobile suite that includes responsive websites as well as a flight-booking app with student and youth airfares.
