Skyscanner can only get better!

Posted on December 8th, 2016. Written by bookingbusinesstravel.

We have always recommended skyscanner for general flight search and have hosted their search widget on our flight search page.

The company, based in Scotland, has always been best for the UK market with better links to more UK low-cost carriers than other companies such as Kayak from the USA, etc.
And we are delighted that Chinese company Ctrip has bought Skyscanner for $1.75 billion
Gareth Williams of CEO Skyscanner said to Tnooz,

“Ctrip is the leading OTA in China and working with it allows us to deepen our understanding and offering to the Chinese market, where we’ve already seen great success, as well as leverage Ctrip’s product investments and insights.
In short, this allows Skyscanner to strengthen and augment its existing offering, ensuring that it’s the world leader in the metasearch field.”

We say, from the perspective of a daily users of Skyscanner, that there will be benefits in terms of content of the China market which is rapidly expanding.

And that content will assist the many of us that are unfamiliar with Chinese cities and airport codes enormously.
