Growth in Flight Centre's overseas businesses, combined with stagnation in its domestic operations, meant that the company generated more than half its profits from offshore for the first time in its history.

Looking ahead, the company's managing director Graham Turner does not expect that trend to change much over the next year, with Flight Centre's major growth opportunities offshore, while it hopes for a modest improvement in the Australian operations.

"In Australia, we expect a gradual leisure sector recovery as the year progresses, as the trading climate improves and as our improvement strategies gain traction," he said. "While market conditions and the consumer environment remain subdued, we have seen some margin stabilisation recently."

Flight Centre expects to close about 30 shops during the year, opening 20 new ones in different locations, in an effort to "right-size" its network in terms of retail outlets and staff. The company already shed almost 300 sales staff over the past financial year.

The company's shares rallied on the result, however, jumping 9.2 per cent to $47.86.

Flight Centre rival Webjet posted a much stronger 46 per cent increase in net profit after tax to $81.3 million. However, even it pointed to the "tough" domestic travel market, "impacted by the federal election as well as slowing economic conditions" as weighing on its overall result.

Flight Centre Travel Group Limited (FLT) guided for FY16 profit before tax to be 2-5% below FY15, versus previous guidance for a 4-8% increase.

Managed cited increasing uncertainty in some key markets, discounted airfares and poor US leisure trading results.(they got it wrong)

Has been a good short last couple days, covered the close tonight, thinking there were some buyers late and it is stretched far enough to bounce

Had a couple of trades, mainly short, but decided late today to have a punt long, bought the auction.
Hoping there is a bit of a bounce, supply starting to look light and with a bit of luck, you never can tell. Might catch a few short stops as well as some punters looking for the next big rise.

Another new high again today - closed way off the high though. FLT does do that a bit. Any TA guys want to comment on the gap a bit lower down?

Use a stop loss every time.

So much for the theory that the growth of the internet would make FLT's business model obsolete. NPAT up another 43% this year!
