Next Generation of Flight Search Engine Coined ‘Meta-Meta Search’

New flight comparison site departs from the previous model of directly
searching numerous OTA’s and airlines in favour of comparing multiple
flight comparison sites.

London, UK August 5, 2008 —
was officially launched today with an exclusive tool that compares
prices from multiple flight comparison sites, performing a so called
"Meta-Meta search". The new site compares flights from Kelkoo, Kayak,
Dohop, Mobissimo and Skyscanner with one single user query, scanning
hundreds of different travel agents and 660 airlines. The aim of the
new search engine is to offer a practical solution to the problem which
affects current day flight comparison sites, namely the inability of a
particular meta search engine to compare every single travel site

For a number of years now travel journalists and financial experts have
been encouraging people to compare flight prices from multiple meta
search engines in order to locate the cheapest flights online. Both
Martin Lewis of and David Grossman of espouse the same idea.

David Grossman, travel columnist for USA today says ‘…Perhaps one
day someone will launch a metasearch site that searches multiple
metasearch sites with the click of a button. But for now, the prudent
thing is to continue searching multiple websites if you want to find a
bargain or the best value for your money…’ 

Shahab Siddiqui, Founder of the new website, says, "You could consider to be the first meta-meta search engine for
flights … rather than searching traditional travel agents and
airlines, the site uniquely compares some of the best flight comparison
sites online."

The site now claims to be an indispensable tool for savvy internet
consumers looking for the cheapest flights. The founder of the site
says that developing this type of search facility was necessary due to
the inability of a single flight search engine to comprehensively
search the internet. He claims that if consumers were to carefully
select searches on multiple flight search engines they could
effectively multiply the number of sites compared and practically
guarantee themselves the cheapest available price.

Starting off with a small loan, Shahab embarked upon this ambitious
project with only his personal laptop to hand. Hiring a small band of
developers and forming unique relationships with numerous flight
comparison sites, he has managed to construct the first flight engine
for meta-meta search. He now envisages the new website to be a valuable
resource for finding flights and saving consumers considerable time and

was launched on the 5th of August 2008, aiming to ease the process of
finding the cheapest flights online. The site is the first of its kind
to compare multiple comparison sites including Kelkoo, Kayak, Dohop,
Mobissimo and Skyscanner, comparing hundreds of travel sites and 660
unique airlines with one single user query.
