GetFlight.com.au, dedicated to airfares for flights into and from Australia, has announced the launch of GetFlight Singapore [GetFlight.com.sg], a new sister site that utilises GetFlight’s proprietary global platform. GetFlight.com.sg is launching with six brands, including two online travel agents (OTAs) and four airlines: Jetstar, Malaysian, Singapore and Tiger Airways, to allow consumers to search and explore airfare sales from Singapore.
The launch of GetFlight Singapore is part of the company’s global strategy, to provide travellers with a simple and easy-to-use platform to discover, compare and book airfares. It will direct users to the airlines’ websites for purchasing, and users can subscribe to personalised email alerts notifying them of specific sale fares to only the places they want to go. Currently GetFlight.com.sg is tracking sale airfares to over 40 cities in more than 20 countries, and GetFlight expects to add additional airlines over the coming months.
GetFlight.com.sg joins GetFlight.com.au on the GetFlight global platform that pushes real-time airline fares across web, mobile and social channels. It deeply tracks user location, engagement and search history, can be configured and rolled out to other regions, providing a branding engine that offers partners a white label integration with their existing websites and customer base.

It was awarded the 2011 best global travel start-up company at the Web In Travel conference in Singapore last month following a competitive set of presentations, with the finalists including American-based tour and activities marketplace Flextrip.com and TourPackages.com.sg, owned by Singaporean tech company Travelogy.com.
As the 2011 “Grooviest Start-Up”, GetFlight was provided significant exposure to an international audience, which included some of the region’s most well-known executives and investors.
