Keep it simple: Das Logo von flyiin.

flyiin provides travel sellers with a simple way to build truly user-centric flight booking experiences based on direct connections to their partner airlines.

Travel startups, consumer brands, and corporations will use its Airline DirectConnect Platform to design experiences for their travellers to easily search, compare and buy flights and services, directly with airlines. Relaunched in 2018, the Berlin-based travel tech company currently works with companies like Qixxit to help them deliver the level of product transparency and choice long expected by air travellers.


  1. Airlines wish to become retailers, but can't.
    No control of their distribution. They don’t control the ‘product’ presented to the traveller. No sense of the customer. They don’t know who searches for flights, thus can’t customise their product. No up-sell opportunities. No channel properly markets their higher value fares and services. No product differentiation. They can only compete on (basic) fares, not on brand nor experience. No user data. They have no idea about the products travellers like and those they don’t like.
  2. Leading to a dreadful customer experience for air travellers.
    Non-inclusive prices. Finding the best price inclusive of my desired services takes hours, even days. Invalid offers. Many fares on online travel agencies and metasearch are either not bookable or incorrect. No sense of the experience. Unless you’re a frequent flyer, you’ve got no clue on what to expect. Lack of transparency. You never know what you are actually buying. Who’s in charge? The airline? The seller? You don’t know who to call in case of disruption.


Our Airline DirectConnect Platform is designed to make it possible and easy for any non-travel agency players to sell air travel to their users, in a traveller-centric and inspiring way. Accessible by the most developer-friendly ‘flights API’ in the market, our platform hides all complexity inherent to airline distribution, enabling travel brands, startups, generic marketplaces, social networks and corporations to build airline-driven and highly-user centric flight booking experiences. And this, without having to be or become airline distribution experts nor an accredited travel agency.
