Mission: the most comprehensive and fastest flight planning site available
Now covers 33 Million Flights
Unique feature: links low-cost flight connections

Cheapflights Ltd., the leading UK and US internet travel media company, announces that dohop ltd the free-to-use online flight planner, has implemented a number of important product enhancements. Cheapflights made a strategic investment in dohop in January this year and is represented on the dohop Board.
Dohop now searches more than 660 scheduled airlines. It calculates the best routes and connections for 3486 airports worldwide. It then provides links to airlines and online travel agents where the latest price and flights can be checked and booked direct.

The new site release includes the following useful upgrades for users:

• The enlarging of the flight schedule database by 3.5 million long-haul flights bringing the total to 33 million flights spanning a period of 14 months. This now probably makes dohop the most comprehensive flight planner in existence.

• The flight search function has been speeded up to provide an almost instant schedule of flights between chosen airports.

• A new “Add to my trip” function can be used to save flight segments. Now it is easier to mix and match flights from multiple searches to plan complicated multi-city trips around the world. Once the first leg of a trip has been researched, by clicking "Add to my trip", several flights can be added to provide an extended trip itinerary. This feature can be a great help for those planning around the world flights, multi-city or open-jaw trips** of any kind.

• "Add to my trip" also makes comparison easy. Compare costs, journey times and layovers between your chosen options. Compare low-cost airlines and traditional airlines across all key flight decision points like timing, airport, journey length and price (not always the most important thing!).

• A new mapping feature powered by Google Maps to trace selected flight routes on a world map.

Commenting, Hugo Burge, Cheapflights’ Vice Chairman and Head of International said: "We are impressed with the way that the dohop team have implemented these improvements to what was already a remarkable site. This is a perfect tool for those who need to know precise flight times, routes and availability from anywhere to anywhere else..."

Frosti Sigurjonsson, CEO of dohop said: “The latest site release makes dohop a very complete flight planner - It is now probably the most comprehensive flight search engine in the world as well as the fastest. People can save both time and money by researching their flights on dohop.

The backing from Cheapflights has enabled us to accelerate our product development efforts. We are looking forward to releasing a plethora of new features in the upcoming weeks and months.”

Cheapflights Ltd
Founded in 1996 and profitable since launch, Cheapflights (cheapflights.com) is the UK’s leading UK flight price comparison web and pioneered the travel price comparison model on the internet. It also introduced pay-per-click in the UK in 2000. Cheapflights is one of the few British internet companies successfully to establish an operation in the USA . Launched in May 2003, and currently with 2.5 million unique users a month it is already in the top 13 USA travel sites (Hitwise US).

Cheapflights does not sell any flight deals or travel products. Each day, it sorts millions of flight prices from hundreds of travel partners worldwide. It then publishes a filtered current list of the best deals. These deals can be accessed online or by telephone direct with the advertiser from links or information on our site. This makes Cheapflights one of the most comprehensive independent online publishers of flight deals available. It also has well established opt-in subscription weekly newsletters on both sides of the Atlantic with over 4 million subscribers. The Company has launched UK and USA "Flight News" blog sites, These have become major interactive communities to inform and assist travel consumers on both sides of the Atlantic.

Hitwise's statistics show Cheapflights as being the UK's top vertical search and comparison site for the past 17 quarters. Cheapflights now accounts for just under 1% of all UK PPC advertising and 3.2% of all UK online travel display adverts according to recently released IAB figures. The Company's unique user numbers reached almost 6.00 million globally in January 2007.

Cheapflights estimates that it generated travel product sales of over US$1.8 billion for its advertising partners in 2006. These advertisers read like a Who’s Who of the travel world - ranging from British Airways, Thomson, Expedia, Travelocity and Thomas Cook to specialist operators like STA Travel, Mark Warner and Iglu.

In January 2007 Cheapflights invested in the Icelandic global flights planner, dohop Ltd and is represented on the dohop Board. The dohop free website enables travellers to research available flight routes and scheduled departures and arrivals worldwide and operates as a separate business to Cheapflights. It facilitates journey planning and is particularly helpful for finding unusual flight connections. David Soskin and Hugo Burge, CEO and Vice Chairman respectively of Cheapflights launched HOWZAT media LLP, in January 2007, an investment fund for start-up and early stage dotcoms. It will seek out global opportunities in internet media, including, but not exclusively, in the travel sector. Sites already invested in: social networking travel site wayn; residential property vertical search site zoomf; and TrustedPlaces, a next generation reviews and social networking website focussed on recommended places to Cheapflights' status as an independent online travel price search and comparison and travel news site makes it a natural starting point for finding travel deals and up-to-date travel industry information from a neutral source.
