Mystifly has raised total funding of $13 Mn to date, including the latest fundraise.
Mystifly was founded in 2009 in Bengaluru by Rajeev Kumar. The startup, which has been headquartered in Singapore since 2015, offers SaaS solutions to airlines and other travel intermediaries. It offers multi-source shopping that unifies airline offers, order management and payments on a single platform enabling offer discovery, ticket order management, ancillary sales, post-booking services and payments.
“The pandemic has made us more resilient, and our investment in multi-source search, servicing and payments platform has resulted in a self-onboarding enterprise-level air travel platform for airlines and travel intermediaries,” Mystifly CEO and founder Kumar said.
The startup enables online travel agencies and travel intermediaries to access a vast inventory of airfares. It claims that over 20 Mn air travel bookings have been made and settled through its platform.
Mystifly has offices in Singapore, the UK, the US, and India and claims to offer services to 3,000 clients, including 700 airlines. It counts ecommerce platforms, fintech companies, travel management companies, wholesalers, and aggregators among its clients.
“Mystifly is…empowering intermediaries to be digital first while also offering enhanced attributes to make consumer’s decision-making easier. Through the pandemic, the company built various solutions for multiple stakeholders proving to be an anti-fragile business, well positioned to scale from here on,” said Nanika Kakkar, Investment Director of CSVP Fund.
Mystifly competes with the likes of Travel Boutique Online, InteleTravel, Airlines Reporting Corporation and Travelzen.
