has officially announced that they have entered the U.S. market this year.
Hugo Burge, President USA and COO of Cheapflights Group commented: “ has now been live for 6 months in the USA. I am delighted to say that we are ahead of plan.  Consumers have responded excellently to our unique product offering of flight deals from both leading and specialist operators in the USA travel industry.  As a result, we have been able to offer our travel industry partners ever increasing and significant volumes of ticket sales.

He continued: “We estimate that we will generate over $60m of flight sales for these partners in the year ahead.  As the first leading UK travel website to launch in the USA (out of cashflow - which many said was impossible),  I would like to emphasise that this is just the beginning.  I am now more confident than ever that will be able to replicate its formidable UK success story in the most exciting and competitive internet travel market on the planet.”
