Skyscanner is a world leading global travel search site providing instant online comparisons on millions of flight prices on 1000 airlines, as well as car hire, hotels and holidays. The site is no.1 in Europe and no.3 worldwide and is increasing global market share rapidly.
Headquartered in Edinburgh UK, with other offices in Singapore, Beijing & soon to be launching in Maimi, Skyscanner is a global business – the site is available in more than 30 languages and has significant market presence in over 40 countries worldwide.
With more than 30 million visitors to the Skyscanner sites each month – 50% of which are repeat visitors – and over 20 million app installations across iOS, Android and Windows Phone since launching in 2011, Skyscanner is growing rapidly, generating around $3 billion of revenue in the last year for client airlines and online travel agents.
Unlike most other travel sites, Skyscanner owns its own data and combines intelligent technology and data from hundreds of independent flight price sources to create a search experience that adapts to how our customer wants to search for travel. Customers can search using specific dates and destinations, or by airport, city, country, month or year.
Skyscanner is also a powerful tool for travel inspiration; users can search from any destination to ‘everywhere’ to see their cheapest flight options.
