Cheapflights Launches Australia/NZ Website

Cheapflights Launches Australia /New Zealand Website cheapflights.com.au

LONDON, Apr. 14/ PRNewswire-AsiaNet/ --

Cheapflights Ltd, the pioneer and an international leader in independent online flight price comparison announces the launch of its newest travel search website serving Australia and New Zealand, http://www.cheapflights.com.au. The website is based on the popular search box navigation format that quickly provides users with deals from providers of flights, or packages of flights plus hotel deals by date. It also provides current `hot deals’ hand selected by Cheapflights' travel experts which may include flights through to package deals. In addition, Cheapflights' knowledgeable editorial team have developed over 1,000 custom travel guides including helpful travel tips which are expanded regularly.

A precursor website had established a growing following of loyal users over several years. The new website has created increased interest amongst travel operators and airlines in becoming advertising `partners’.

Mo Bulbrook, Cheapflights' Head of International said today: ``Even though the site was brought to you by `whinging pommies’, Cheapflights believe Aussies & Kiwis couldn't give a XXXX if it leads to better flight prices. We are therefore very pleased to be able to introduce Cheapflights.com.au to our family of sites. Given our websites' popularity with travelers in Europe and North America, it is logical for us to offer a price search and comparison site `Down Under’. We have been very happy with the encouragement we have received from the travel industry in Australia and New Zealand - companies such as Expedia, Zuji, Best Flights, Qantas Holidays, STA Travel and travel.com.au are all publishing their deals with Cheapflights. In time, we look forward to expanding the site to provide local consumers with even more travel destinations and great fares to get there.’’

Chris Cuddy, Cheapflights CEO added: ``The introduction of our new international technology platform last year has enabled us to significantly accelerate the rollout of new websites and to ensure that consumers have a broad choice of flights providers, inspirational travel guides, and great deals. Cheapflights is a committed consumer champion on behalf of travelers world-wide. We will also continue to invest to make Cheapflights.com.au a highly effective and independent marketing partner to the travel industry including airlines, budget airlines, consolidators, online travel agents and the long-tail of small and specialist high street travel agents.’’
