www.goibibo.com becomes the first Indian OTA to partner with Google Flight Search


MUMBAI: www.goibibo.com, one of India’s top three online travel aggregators has become the first Indian portal to partner with Google for its Flight Search feature. The association reinforces Goibibo’s core value proposition of offering the FASTEST and most TRUSTED booking experience and will enable the portal to reach out with its services to a wider base of users.

“Goibibo.com is the first OTA in India to partner with Google for Flight Search .This is in line with our philosophy and core differentiation of delivering the fastest booking experience to our travellers”, said Ashish Kashyap, Founder & CEO of ibiboGroup (ibibo owns Goibibo.com and redbus.in).

Venkat Chandramoleshwar, Partnerships Manager, Travel, said: “Goibibo has grown in the past five years to become a leading online travel aggregator in India, and we are delighted they are joining the Google Flight Search family. Travellers can now easily find and compare the best flights on Flight Search and can book their flights on Goibibo, one of the blue partner book buttons featured on Google.“

On using Google Flight Search in India, travellers are offered the option to book the best flights available directly on the airline site or via Goibibo.com. The association, therefore, benefits the customers by allowing them to quickly find, compare and book flights from their mobile device, tablet or desktop in the most seamless way.

It is also a shot in the arm for Goibibo because not only does this validate its position as the quickest way to make travel bookings but also allows for greater penetration into the Indian online travel market, further bolstering its leadership position. Being the first Indian OTA to partner with Google Flight Search demonstrates the company’s commitment to enhancing the convenience of its customers through continued technological innovations and collaborations with other industry leaders.
