Flightfox – the power of crowdsourcing

In a world where informations are numerous and more accessible than ever, people feel often overwhelmed by the amount of search engines, websites and other platforms we have access to, especially when it comes to finding a flight rate.

This is where Flightfox, a platform launched in 2012, intervenes. Each traveler can launch a contest, containing all informations needed for their flight, and have hundreds of experts competing for the best flight fares. Within a few days propositions are posted to you, giving you access to the best flight rates, thanks to the power of crowdsourcing.
