A Silicon Valley start up by the name Vayama launched today what it says is the industry’s only dedicated international travel Web site. It’s also claiming to offer the largest selection of international airlines, flight and fares.
Vayama, which incorporates Ajax technology, said it offers access to the flight inventory of airlines not previously available online as well as specific fare and route combinations. Examples of this include booking a trip on Iberia from New York to Rome, China Eastern from Los Angeles to Ho Chi Minh or Hawaiian Airlines from San Francisco to Sydney.
Features of Vayama include an interactive world map, 3-D seat maps, the ability to book flights to other cities and countries beyond the original destination, flight comparisons and a narrowing of search results based upon criteria such as total travel time or connecting airports.
