JetRadar is a travel search engine that allows users to compare airline prices and offers, specializing in low cost airfare.

JetRadar is multilingual. Users can search in English, German, French, Spanish and Italian. The company is operated by Go Travel UN Limited, and additionally provides local search engines for the Russian market including Aviasales.ru, which is the company's sister-brand.[1] There is also a Thai version of the website, which went live in November 2013.[2]

History[edit]

JetRadar began in 2007 as an airfare blog by founder Konstantin Kalinov. The catalyst for the business came the following year when Russian airfare distribution was liberalized, allowing the sale of e-tickets.

In May 2012 JetRadar released an English version of the company’s main web functions. Since this time the English version has become a stand alone project with 535 airline partners and the cooperation of 35 travel agencies worldwide.[3] In February 2014, the companies received a $10 million investment from iTech Capital, which then took a minority stake in the company.[4] JetRadar’s headquarters is located in Phuket, Thailand. There are additional offices in Sydney, Hong Kong, Moscow and Saint Petersburg.[5]

Product and services[edit]

JetRadar lists online flight deals and travel packages from around the world.

In 2014, JetRadar launched Magic Fare, a tool that aims to find the lowest prices in long-haul flights with a layover by searching different tariffs on flights.[6]

Other services[edit]

ECO Rank is one of the JetRadar’s filters. It uses an ICAO approach to identify flights with less harmful emissions. ECO ranks flight options based on aviation emissions, traffic forecasts, and aircraft range.[7]

Mobile Application[edit]

JetRadar is iPhone, iPad and Android compatible. The app shows prices including tax.[8]
