"Our
future together will be very bright," said world renowned travel expert
Randy Petersen, owner of the WebFlyer Network at the launch of Iloho,
an innovative travel-centric online community focusing on
user-generated news stories, social networking and in-depth route
reviews, in partnership with WebFlyer Network – which includes such
popular travel websites as FlyerTalk.com, WebFlyer.com and
InsideFlyer.com


"Our
members can bring a wealth of interesting and relevant content to
Iloho," he continued, "and stand to benefit from Iloho’s cutting-edge
content management system and advanced social networking tools."

The
agreement will give FlyerTalk’s 135,000 members the option to link
their forum threads to Iloho to be managed by the site’s advanced
bookmarking system. In the near future, FlyerTalk’s forum members will
also be able to use Iloho’s social networking tools within their
community.

In
true Web 2.0 style, Iloho’s content is generated wholly by its users:
they choose, create and rate every single story and review ensuring
that the site is continuously refreshed with the most relevant and
recommended travel information.

Iloho
also delivers a social-networking function that enables users to create
their own online profile, comment on and review the site’s content,
engage in social activities and geo-locate groups and itineraries so
they know exactly what’s happening and where.

"To provide a
fully integrated travel experience," said Petersen, "Iloho offers users
a fare comparison function, in-depth route reviews and an augmented
airfare service where, in addition to price, users can filter flights
based on their preferred airline, plus arrival and departure times."

"Iloho
is set to inject online travel with fresh dynamism and excitement,"
said Andrea Liu, Iloho’s Chief Executive Officer. "We offer a truly
unique community that incorporates the very best forum, social
networking and route review functions. We are confident that Iloho will
appeal to a very broad range of travelers worldwide and provide an
unrivaled online experience. We are also lucky to have such fantastic
launch partners and we look forward to continuing and building on these
relationships."
