Travel search engine Kayak has applied the technology of German software start-up Quicket in order to further enhance the customer experience. Primarily, Quicket provides Kayak with information regarding seating and additional offers in over 23,000 aircraft from more than 400 airlines, which are fully integrated into the booking process. In this way, customers of the travel search engine can learn about their legroom, whether Wi-Fi is available on their flight, how far the backrests recline, and more.
Self-learning algorithms search the database which has been constructed, structured and optimized by the developers for years. On this basis, Quicket can display the seating configuration of an aircraft used on a specific route. The information is incorporated via the Quicket application programming interface (API). Kayak, in turn, can make the information available to customers via their portfolio of brands which includes Kayak, Momondo, Cheapflights, SWOODOO, checkfelix and Mundi.
Quicket is a Munich-based Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) provider, specialized on the supply of reliable data about airline extra services in the travel industry.
