Airfare Price Tracking API for Mobile Websites and Apps Honored as Best in Travel
Seattle, WA – October 6, 2011 – Yapta, the leading provider of on-demand airfare price assurance services for the Corporate Travel 100, today announced that it has been awarded a Gold Magellan Award by Travel Weekly for its airfare price tracking API. Yapta’s API was selected for its excellence in the “Mobile Site” category as it enables mobile developers to integrate Yapta’s core price tracking technology into their software applications or mobile websites.
Yapta’s Price Tracking API, the travel industry’s only API for tracking airfare prices, enables mobile websites and applications to track pricing on specific flights offered from hundreds of airlines around the world. Flight prices can be monitored both before purchase – in an effort to help travelers buy at the lowest price – and after purchase, in an effort to help travelers capture an airline refund when the price drops. Yapta’s API can be used to power mobile sites and apps looking for a dynamic, multi-source price-tracking system that provides a high-frequency, high-precision and high-reliability platform for monitoring airfare fluctuations.
The Travel Weekly Magellan Awards honor the best in travel from a broad range of industry segments, including hotels and resorts, travel destinations, cruise lines, online travel services, airlines and airports, travel agents and agencies, tour operators, and car rental companies. The awards are judged by a committee of top travel professionals and luminaries from the travel industry, and winners are determined according to Travel Weekly’s high standard of excellence.
“Being recognized by Travel Weekly is a tremendous honor, and I’m very proud of our team and the technology we’ve developed,” said Tom Romary, president and CEO of Yapta. “We’ve worked extremely hard on behalf of our corporate customers and frequent travelers to deliver them maximum value for their travel spend – and an award of this magnitude only inspires us to do more.”
