Tech award for Alternative Airlines

Global flight-search and booking website Alternative Airlines, based near Gatwick, has won national recognition as one of the fastest-growing tech companies in the UK according to this year’s Tech Track 100 list compiled by The Sunday Times.

The award comes after the company grew from three to 32 staff and achieved revenue growth of 248% in just three years. Ranked 93rd in the list, it is forecasting a turnover of £19.4m by the end of this year.

Managing director Sam Argyle said: “Alternative Airlines is the most intuitive and accessible platform for finding and booking flights with access to more than 600 carriers worldwide.

“We allow travellers to book to some of the world’s most remote destinations in a fast, convenient way, with customers offered a personalised user experience and more than 25 payment methods in 160 currencies available.”

“We’re thrilled with this recognition in the Tech Track list, which is a testament to the hard work and pioneering approach to utilising technology to match the needs of today’s global traveller.”

Most of Alternative Airlines’ bookings come from international customers; last year, international visitors to the site increased by 105% and the company received bookings from customers in 130 different countries.
