Pelikin Bags Duffel
Pelikin bags Duffel travel app Pelikin has unveiled a new partnership with flight tech platform Duffel, enabling the company’s users to book flights through Duffel’s range of airline partners, a move foreshadowed by Travel Daily last month (TD 24 Jun).
The partnership will see Pelikin integrate into Duffel’s Flights API, a development Pelikin CEO Sam Brown believes will provide its users with access to the best flight deals in the market.
“Offering flights via our app has been a feature we’ve been keen to add, but getting all of the various accreditations and building a platform capable of doing it in a way that benefits our customers made it almost prohibitively difficult and timeconsuming…Duffel removes these barriers,” Brown said.
The integration has seen Jerome King recruited as Head of Flights to manage the new service, where he will work with airline partners to design flexible products for younger travellers.
