“We have tested several price comparison sites on flights and hotels and Momondo is without a doubt offering the best and widest searches. Momondo has many free services that can create value for Finnish travellers. I am convinced that by offering the best consumer experience, we can establish Momondo as the first choice travel site in Finland,” says Samuli Melanko, Momondo’s Country Manager in Finland.

Samuli Melanko, who is also Partner in one of Finland’s leading digital marketing agencies, SearchBox, has great experience in creating measurable results on digital platforms.

The country has also positioned itself as a design-mecca with a strong innovative profile. Therefore, it is crucial for Momondo to have a strong position on the Finnish market,” says Martin Lumbye, Momondo partner.
