Flight Centre's full-year profit has edged up 0.1 per cent and the travel agency says it's hopeful the company's business in Australia will bounce back from "disappointing ... soft results".

It declared a fully franked final dividend of 98 cents, down from $1.07 in the previous corresponding period.
