  • BARRYFrank has mentioned some of the factors that make us so different – independent data, strong commercial relationshipsFrom the user’s perspective, what makes us different is the fact that on Skyscanner they can search they way they want to search. Skyscanner gives them ultimate ‘browseability’, with tools such as ‘everywhere’, ‘map’ and ‘whole month’ searchThe proOur mobile strategy is a natural extension of this objective of not imposing a process on our customers. We have always wanted to offer a user journey which breaks the boundaries of traditional travel search.Users see search controls and they feel they have to type in route pair / date pair, before they get anything back.From The most unqualified search being Country to Everywhere on Any Date, through to fully qualified – we are able to offer prices back for the user at any stage in between those 2 points. Something our competitors could not do – due to the way they obtain / pay for their data.duct can be used to inspire.
