As the worldwide recession spreads, we are finding that many customers are looking to stretch their travel dollars. We are expanding into Canada now because we are getting an increasing number of calls from Canadians wanting to use our services
San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) March 12, 2009
FlyHub, the nation's premiere marketplace for buying and selling airline products, announced Monday it is expanding into Canada as part of its global rollout.
FlyHub's unique marketplace allows sellers to cash in their airline products, while also giving buyers a break on their travel costs. "We know that the poor economy and high airline prices are squeezing customers' budgets," said Yolande Nyonda, FlyHub's Global Chief Strategic Officer. "FlyHub benefits both sellers, who are able to monetize their airline products, and buyers, who can find more affordable trips on our web site."
FlyHub, which debuted in the United States in August 2008, will be expanding into the United Kingdom and France within two months and plans to expand into other European countries, South America, Asia and Africa within the next three years. "As the worldwide recession spreads, we are finding that many customers are looking to stretch their travel dollars. We are expanding into Canada now because we are getting an increasing number of calls from Canadians wanting to use our services," said Yolande Nyonda.
How It Works:
Once customers register for free at FlyHub.com, the site's straightforward design makes it simple for sellers to list their products and for buyers to search for the right airline product to meet their needs.
Once a sale is made, the seller will send the airline product either by FedEx or email. In addition, once the order is confirmed, FlyHub guarantees buyers will receive what they purchased in time for their travel - the same as if the customer received the product directly from any major airline. Sellers are guaranteed that they will be paid as well under FlyHub's SecureFly Protection pledge.
FlyHub is an online airline product exchange that allows individuals, frequent travelers, occasional passengers, airline brokers, airline employees, and businesses to buy, sell, and transfer airline products such as airline credit, vouchers, gift certificates, coupons, frequent-fliermiles, and credit card points for miles on a safe, easy and fast platform. FlyHub believes that by providing a marketplace for travelers to buy and sell to one another, users would again take control of their travel plans. FlyHub created its SecureFly Protection plan to give customers the same or better reliability and security as they would find dealing with any major airline.
