Digital marketplace Sulekha.com has entered into a partnership with Wego, a leading travel metasearch site in the Asia Pacific and Middle East. Under this partnership, Wego’s comprehensive metasearch facility will be integrated within Sulekha.com’s website. This will enable users to search for flights and hotels directly on the site. The new platform affords users the opportunity to compare and book over 600 airlines, including low cost carriers, as well as more than 350,000 hotels and resorts.
Commenting on the launch, Mr. Param Parameswaran, Chairman of Sulekha.com, said, “To cater to an increased interest among our customers for travel requirements, Sulekha.com launched a new and improved Travel section on the site. Hence, it was a natural move for us to partner with Wego, a leading travel metasearch engine, to provide price comparison option for flight ticket and hotel booking. This service is a natural extension of our extensive network of classified listing. Our users will get a huge benefit from this alliance.”
Announcing this first new partnership in 2013, Wego continues with its expansion plan in India, which has seen the launch of wego.co.in in 11 national languages, including Bengali, Kannada, Tamil, Telugu and more for unprecedented reach across the country.
Wego powers travel metasearch globally for online giants Yahoo! in Southeast Asia, ninemsn Travel in Australia, YourSingapore.com, Flyklia.com and visitabudhabi.ae and has established partnerships with regional and international travel players such as Agoda, Expedia, Jet Airways and Emirates.
