TripStack has been getting serious traction recently and was featured in BOSS Magazine and GlobeNewswire. In just under 2 years, the company has grown significantly and plans to continue to keep expanding.
TripStack is revolutionizing the B2B travel market by taking advantage of big data to provide access to low-cost carrier airlines (LCCs) and the best “virtual interline” itineraries in one search.
Virtual interlining is a technique that allows travelers to combine previously unconnected airlines to create dramatically lower-cost flights. While many online travel hackers have been using virtual interlining to create low-cost itineraries for years, TripStack is the first company to truly harness the power and put it in the hands of travel agencies, corporate travel management companies, B2B travel companies, and tour operators.
TripStack founder Naman Budhdeo explains, “We take every airline in the world, with billions of flight prices a day, and apply data science to create flights that have never been created before. For example, there are 20 airlines that fly from Toronto to Barcelona. … What virtual interlining does is combine airlines to Barcelona with airlines that currently have no relationship with each other. For example, we will combine WestJet from Toronto to London, with EasyJet from London to Barcelona. The result? A price that is $300 lower than any other airline.”
TripStack works by using big data to find inexpensive travel itineraries in ways that have never been done before. It uses two techniques to establish the best possible low-cost combinations.
First, its Every Flight on Earth (EFOE) technology accesses every low cost carrier in the world, many of which can’t be found through traditional flight distribution channels. Next, the company’s TripBuilder tech sifts through the EFOE fares, as well as over 100 million other fares from traditional airlines, to discover the virtual interline fares that are significantly cheaper than fares anywhere else. It then puts all of this info together in one simple to integrate, developer-first API that even the most technophobe travel agents can easily use.
In 2019, TripStack plans to integrate other forms of transportation as well, including buses, trains, and ferries, in order to truly streamline the virtual interlining process. With a young, tech-focused team that is eager to work on innovative solutions, TripStack is well equipped to solve complex problems and revolutionize the way billions of people travel.
