It identifies the cheapest route available and gets the local carrier along with the pricing available for that particular geography.

The platform includes consolidator/ private, public- and market-specific local airfares. Fare variants include Marine Fares, Student Fares, Labour Fares, Military Fares including other fare types from multi-GDS and multi point-of-sale Pseudo City Codes (PCCs).

Its clients include Thomas Cook, FCM Travel, CWT, Dnata, BCD Travel, Qunar, Yatra, Cleartrip, ezeego1, Via, Kiwi, Cheapoair, Rovia, Wipro, Kanoo, Connexions, Saveonresorts, and Smartfares.
