Mobissimo is very happy to 'come home' and launch in the country where our name, our inspiration and co-founders come from. We are introducing our official marketing communications campaign 'All Eyes on Mobissimo' in April in Milan during the Salone Internazionale dell Mobile, a world-class event attended by very discerning travelers

    Much more than a simple translation, Mobissimo's new Italian site is seamlessly "Italian" and extends the reach of the travel search engine. Mobissimo's Italian site includes fares and offers from local travel agencies, consolidators, hotel operators and all the major and low-cost airlines that are pertinent to users in Italy.

The addition of Italian suppliers to the 180 travel sites Mobissimo searches -- such as edreams.it, venere.it, opodo.it, ehotel.it, veuling.it, Tuifly.it and centralwings.it, among others -- will benefit all Mobissimo users with access to more possible itineraries, connections and good prices. Mobissimo also partners with local advertisers and companies.

With its unique, scalable offering, Mobissimo is able to successfully expand into rapidly growing international travel markets faster than its competitors. In addition to the new Italian site, Mobissimo currently operates sites in France, India, the UK, and North America, serving users from over 200 countries with the only truly objective travel search tool.

"Our deep knowledge of the international sector is paying off with new opportunities for expansion. While the U.S. may be heading into recession, this year more Europeans are travelling abroad with greater spending power, due in part to the continued strength of the euro against the dollar," said Beatrice Tarka, Mobissimo's CEO and co-founder. "But other economic factors -- such as consumer mobility in countries within the European Union -- have given rise to a new generation of low-cost airlines keeping pace with customers' demand for new, flexible travel options all across the globe. That is exactly where Mobissimo adds value for the consumer as no other travel search engine can."

Already established as the undisputed international travel search expert, Mobissimo searches more low-cost airlines and consolidators than any other metasearch engine and provides up-to-the-minute travel deals from the widest range of online travel agencies, major air carriers, low cost carriers, car rentals and hotels available with a single click.

Milan-based Lucia Carniglia Schiavone, one of the original co-founders of Mobissimo, is stepping up to oversee Mobissimo's Italian expansion. Schiavone is a former Swissair executive, well-known in the region and in the travel industry at large for her European and Italian travel market expertise. "Mobissimo is very happy to 'come home' and launch in the country where our name, our inspiration and co-founders come from. We are introducing our official marketing communications campaign 'All Eyes on Mobissimo' in April in Milan during the Salone Internazionale dell Mobile, a world-class event attended by very discerning travelers," said Schiavone.
