Proprietary Air Fare Shopping Engine Simplifies Trip Planning with Price Drop Payback™, Streamlined Booking and User-Friendly Site
Calabasas, CA (January 1, 2012) These days, buying an airline ticket is like playing the stock market. Fares fluctuate weekly, even daily, and the deluge of complicated travel websites makes it hard for consumers to figure out how to get a good deal. But one site, CheapAir.com, aims to end the confusion, using cutting edge technology and superior customer service to radically simplify the way folks shop for flights. CheapAir.com’s innovative features like Price Drop Payback and Top Picks for flights with the best combination of value and amenities arm consumers with “airfare intelligence” so they can easily make more informed, confident travel decisions.
Founded in 1989, CheapAir.com is the brainchild of CEO Jeff Klee, who started the business with a friend in his college dorm after the two got a crash course in the intricacies of the airline business while planning their own backpacking trip through Europe. Even then, the company, originally known as 1-800-Cheap-Air, took a creative approach to saving people money on fares, offering convenient services like FedEx ticket delivery at a time when folks still had to go to their travel agent to pick-up their plane tickets.
In the last two decades, CheapAir.com has evolved to stay on the cusp of new technology. CheapAir.com is the only U.S. travel site that offers Price Drop Payback, reimbursing customers up to $100 per ticket if their fare drops before their trip. The site even arms travelers with hard to find travel information, showing which flights have Wi-Fi, live TV, and other amenities that better inform purchase decisions. CheapAir.com is the first online travel agency in the U.S. to offer these comprehensive listings of flight amenities.
Klee now leads a team of 50 travel enthusiasts, capitalizing on his own passion for software programming to provide a proprietary air fare shopping engine designed to give people a better user experience.
“Buying an airline ticket should be simple, but its not,” said Klee. “There are so many variables that determine what price you are going to get at any given time, and the fluctuation in fares makes people confused and overwhelmed. But, at CheapAir.com, we’ve streamlined the whole search process, making it easier for people to find the lowest airfare out there.”
CheapAir.com boasts a user-friendly interface that’s cleaner and simpler to navigate than many of its much larger, less agile competitors. The goal of Klee’s platform is to provide travelers with what he calls ‘airfare intelligence.” The company also prides itself on its commitment to consumer satisfaction, keeping its customer service department in-house, in its Calabasas, CA headquarters.
Unlike other discount travel sites that force users to sift through pages and pages of lackluster itineraries, CheapAir.com whittles flights down to only the best results, and allows travelers to mix and match fares from multiple airlines in a single search, to create a fully customized combination of flights. This way, customers can not only quickly find the best deal but the most convenient itinerary, and buy from different airlines in a single step.
“We want our customers to buy with confidence,” said Klee. “We’re constantly working on giving people tools and advice to make more intelligent choices, so they can get the best fares and flights that fit their needs.”
