New travel website unveiled

An international travel web site has launched that allows consumers to search
from a selection of international airlines, flights and fares,
that have never previously available online.
  Vayama offers a fast and easy flight search thanks to an interactive world map and innovative 3-D
seat maps.
  “If you look at the world of online travel, most Americans are
comfortable booking their own domestic trips, but international travel
remained a complicated puzzle that has now been solved, ” said Andre
Hesselink and Wim Butte, co-CEOs of Vayama. “That’s why Vayama was built;
we are 100% focused on international travel in order to give Americans the
best fares available with access to the most flight and fare options to 191
countries and airlines and routes that they never knew existed.”
  With Vayama, international travelers will be able to book specific fare
and route combinations that have never been easy to book online before such
as Iberia from New York to Rome, China Eastern from Los Angeles to Ho Chi
Minh or Hawaiian Airlines from San Francisco to Sydney. For further
cost-savings and convenience, Vayama also allows international travelers to
book flights to other cities and countries beyond their original
  “Forrester research reveals that seven out of 10 international
travelers are poised to book more online if given an easier way to plan,”
adds Hesselink. “In addition to providing travelers with more international
airfare options, Vayama harnesses the latest in online technologies to make
booking international travel simple and fun by using an interactive map.”
  By incorporating powerful Ajax technology, flight comparisons on Vayama
can be made in the blink of an eye and travelers can narrow search results
in real-time based on personal preferences such as total travel time,
connecting airports and price. In addition, Vayama’s technology connects
international travelers to sources that other travel web sites don’t have
through a combination of direct agreements with the airlines, Global
Distribution Systems and consolidators.
  Vayama, which means “Go, enlightened,” takes away the mystery of
international travel by empowering travelers with information they can
trust. On, travelers can get detailed insight about every aspect
of their trip: airline factoids such as fleet size and age; ground
transportation (from airport, within city, to other parts of the country);
health, visa and safety information; detailed city maps; and travel blogs
with personal insight from other travelers.
