Fly.com Launches in Europe, Set to Expand in Germany
New Site Makes Flight Search Quick and Easy
LONDON, 26 October, 2009 – Fly.com™, a new airfare search engine that offers the simplest way to find the right flight at the right price, today announced its launch in the United Kingdom, with continued expansion into Germany later this year. Fly.com, which scours many airlines and online travel sites including British Airways, Lufthansa, easyJet, bmi, Air Berlin and ebookers.com, searches all European destinations and presents airfare pricing results in all currencies.
“Fly.com is already a big hit in the U.S. where we provide more than two million searches every month for travellers,” said Brian Clark, general manager, Fly.com. “Whether in Boston, Belfast or Berlin, people around the world simply want a fast, uncluttered and easy way to search for flights – and Fly.com offers exactly that.”
In addition, Fly.com offers:
- Easy-to-use search tools that help people sort and narrow results using factors like number of stops, airport preference and departure times
- Results which clearly display prices across all cabins – first class, business class, economy – in every search
- Accurate pricing that includes all applicable taxes and fees
- Relevant travel deals available through Travelzoo®
“Europeans have an insatiable appetite for things that work really well; whether it be a car, a mobile phone or a search engine,” said Chris Loughlin, managing director of Travelzoo in Europe. “Fly.com is cleaner, quicker and simpler to use than other search engines, and I’m certain everyone on this side of the Atlantic will find value in using it for their flight needs.”
