GetFlight launches GetFlight Singapore, wins award for best global start-up

Press Release   •   Nov 15, 2011 14:13 SGT

14 November, 2011 - GetFlight.com.au, the first and only site dedicated to sale airfares for flights in and from Australia, today announced the launch of GetFlight Singapore [GetFlight.com.sg], a new sister site that utilises GetFlight’s proprietary global platform. GetFlight.com.sg is launching with six brands, including two online travel agents (OTAs) and four airlines: Jetstar, Malaysian, Singapore and Tiger Airways, to allow consumers to search and explore sale airfares from Singapore.

The launch of GetFlight Singapore is part of the company’s global strategy, to provide travellers with a simple and easy-to-use platform to discover, compare and book sale airfares. GetFlight.com.sg will direct users to the airlines’ websites for purchasing, and users can subscribe to personalised email alerts notifying them of specific sale fares for only the places they want to go. Currently GetFlight.com.sg is tracking sale airfares to over 40 cities in more than 20 countries, and GetFlight expects to add additional airlines over the coming months.

GetFlight.com.sg joins GetFlight.com.au on the GetFlight global platform, an advanced technology platform that pushes real-time airline fares across web, mobile and social channels. The platform, which deeply tracks user location, engagement and search history, can easily be configured and rolled out to other regions. Additionally, the GetFlight platform provides a branding engine that can offer partners a white label integration with their existing websites and customer base.

Ian Cumming, Principal Founder said: “We’re very excited to launch GetFlight.com.sg as the first step in our global strategy. Singapore is a major travel hub for both full service and low cost carriers with strong competition and frequent sale airfares. We plan to launch additional GetFlight international sites in the near future, in similar competitive markets where deal-savvy consumers are driven by price, and therefore sale airfares.”

GetFlight wins global travel start-up award

GetFlight was awarded the 2011 best global travel start-up company at the Web In Travel conference in Singapore last month. Mr Cumming was given the award following a competitive set of presentations, with the finalists including American-based tour and activities marketplace Flextrip.com and TourPackages.com.sg, owned by Singaporean tech company Travelogy.com. As the 2011 “Grooviest Start-Up”, GetFlight was provided significant exposure to an international audience, which included some of the region’s most well-known executives and investors.
