Leading flight comparison website Skyscanner.net has been recognised as one of Britain’s fastest growing travel technology companies, taking 19th place in the Sunday Times Microsoft Tech Track 100 2011 appearing for the second consecutive year.
Skyscanner was the highest rated online travel business and the highest ranked Scottish company.
The Sunday Times Tech Track 100 ranks Britain’s private technology, telecoms and digital media companies by their average sales growth over the last three years and features companies such as Stickyeyes, Wonga.com, Gocompare.com and bet365.com. Skyscanner announced sales growth of 94% and currently generates downstream revenues of over one billion dollars.
CEO Gareth Williams commented: “We are delighted to have made it in to the top twenty this year. Our position has undoubtedly been driven by our rapid growth in domestic and international markets, the successful acquisition of Zoombu and expansion via the launch of our newly opened Singapore office which all support our ambition of becoming number one worldwide.”
