Skyscanner Reveals new Look
SINGAPORE, February 22, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --
Leading travel search site Skyscanner today unveils a dramatic new redesign, rolling out the new look simultaneously across all platforms and markets in 29 languages.
"The launch date was only decided back in November and we have been flat out with the re-design since then," said Marketing Director Frank Skivington.
He explained the drive behind the new look and feel for the site; "We are very focused on design at Skyscanner, but probably with more emphasis on making the product as good as it can be - giving travellers a comprehensive one stop search site for flights, hotels and car hire and bringing clever new features and brilliant functionality to our users as fast as possible.
"The constant evolution and expansion of the site also means we are dealing with a moving target when it comes to design. And of course we also have the challenge of localising the brand for our many international sites, from Russian to Korean, so it has been an interesting project, to say the least!"
The new design has been developed with the aim of concentrating on the Skyscanner ethos of delivering a brilliant core offering, while keeping the interface simple, beautiful, fast and functional. One of the objectives for the project was to reflect best practices in design for usability as well as look good, so customer testing and feedback sessions were built in to the redesign process.
Skyscanner fans will be pleased to find all of Skyscanner's very clever search tools are still on the site. Customers can still see at a glance which days are cheapest to travel across a whole month, and search for 'everywhere' to see which destinations have the best flight deals on offer.
"We've tried to make all these very popular elements easier to find and use, as well as paving the way for some very exciting new features and search options that will be launched later in the year," said Skivington.
Skyscanner is a leading travel search site providing instant online comparisons for millions of flights on over a thousand airlines, as well as car hire and hotels.
