An alliance of major international airlines - Swiss Air ( www.swissair.com ), AOM French Airlines ( www.aom.com )TAP Air Portugal ( www.tap-airportugal.pt ) and Sabena ( www.sabena.com ) - owns and operates QCCC. The QCCC acts as their in-house customer service supplier, and offers international teleservices to car hire companies and hotel chains, as well as other airlines - eg. Turkish Airlines ( www.turkishairlines.com ).

"The core purpose of the centre," explained William Pattison, CEO of the QCCC operations, "is to provide an outsourced service to leading companies for both internet and telephone bookings as well as frequent flyer member servicing. QCCC prides itself on providing our partners with low cost, competitive, multi-lingual and neutral reservation and service businesses for the benefit of all our partner airlines - and Cape Town has all we need to offer this service."

The South African centre is the eighth call centre to be opened by QCCC, the first having been in London in 1999
