We at Dohop have been quite busy since our last blog post. As the industry has started to better understand the unique possibilities our technology has to offer, Dohop continues to announce new and exciting partnerships. The most recent additions to our partnership network includes the Russian search giant Yandex, Europe’s largest airline Lufthansa, the reputable London Gatwick airport, and Aeroflot, Russia’s largest airline.

Dohop & Yandex

After months of hard work, Dohop finally announced a partnerhip with Yandex. Yandex is one of Europe’s largest search engines and accounts for almost 60% of all search traffic in its home country of Russia. In January of this year alone, Yandex saw 67.1 million unique visitors, mostly from Russia, Ukraine, Kazakhstan, Belarus, and Turkey. It is currently the 19th most visited website in the world.

Yandex will now rely on Dohop’s world leading flight search technology for content in an effort to improve the quality of their own search results.

Our cooperation with Yandex is a big step forward for Dohop. It validates the hard work and innovation we have put into our flight search technology and lets us help an emerging market find and book flights. We are thrilled that Yandex decided to use our solution and look forward to working with them.“ – David Gunnarsson, CEO of Dohop.

Dohop & Lufthansa

Dohop recently entered into a partnership with Deutsche Lufthansa, Europe’s largest airline. This partnership adds to Dohop’s ever-growing network of airlines that work directly with Dohop. Instead of having to book through online travel agents, Dohop users can now book directly with Lufthansa after finding their prices in the search results.

Dohop is now one of the first travel search websites to offer Lufthansa tickets directly through the airline without any charge and supports our mission of giving Dohop users a variety of options at low prices.

“This adds yet another direct airline partnership to our portfolio,” says David Gunnarsson, Dohop’s CEO. “Our continued commitment to working directly with airlines is really something our users appreciate, as they prefer to book directly with airlines. This increases their happiness and improves our conversion rates.”  says David Gunnarsson, CEO of Dohop

Dohop & Gatwick

Dohop and Gatwick recently announced a groundbreaking service in the travel industry, GatwickConnects. This service allows users to book connecting flights through London Gatwick and have them guaranteed by Gatwick. This means that passengers can enjoy the low prices of self-connect flights and the peace-of-mind that comes with a single ticket connecting flight. If you miss your self-connecting flight, Gatwick will guarantee you a refund of your second flight. More information here.

“GatwickConnects is an excellent example of what Dohop’s technology is capable of providing, both to consumers and to airports. We are very happy that London Gatwick chose to use our technology for what is clearly a ground-breaking product in travel.” says David Gunnarsson, Dohop CEO.

Dohop & Aeroflot

The most recent partnership is with Russia’s largest airline, Aeroflot. This new venture allows travelers to search Aeroflot’s 119 destinations around the world on Dohop.com and finalize their booking directly on Aeroflot’s website. We are very excited to be working directly with one of the oldest airline in the world that currently operates flights in 51 countries and has seen significant growth since last year.

“We have been working with Aeroflot for a while now to make sure we have a cooperation that both parties are happy with, and I think we have achieved that. Most of all, it’s our customers in Russia and of course all over the world that will be happy, as they have the opportunity to book directly with yet another one of our airline partners. Our goal is to have direct relationships with as many airlines as possible, since our customers always prefer to book directly on the airline website,” says David Gunnarsson, Dohop CEO.

Looking Forward

Dohop is already working on several exciting projects and forward to working with new partners is 2016. The pursuit of beneficial partnerships will continue to be one of Dohop’s primary focus areas. These partnerships are an effective way for us to accomplish our goal of giving travelers the variety and low prices they deserve.
