NEW DELHI: IndiGo has announced on Friday that it had entered into a partnership with a global travel aggregator that will allow the latter’s users to book tickets of the budget carrier’s flights.
The partnership with Skyscanner, one of the world’s leading travel search engine, will not only enhance access to Indian destinations but also place them more prominently on the world map, according to IndiGo chief commercial officer William Boulter.
“This integration will be a gateway for Skyscanner users to access a wide network of domestic and international IndiGo flights at affordable fares, while we deliver an on-time, courteous and hassle-free experience,” Boulter said.
The chief commercial officer said the partnership would enable economic growth through “inbound tourist spends”.
Skyscanner said the integration highlighted the aggregator’s commitment to help its partners like IndiGo expand into new markets.
“What’s more, it means that our 90 million monthly active users will have even more choice on Skyscanner’s trusted platforms,” Mike Ferguson, commercial director, Asia-Pacific, Skyscanner, said.
