Travelling is breaking boundaries. To travel is to fuel that inner spark of natural curiosity that leads us to explore. Leads us to pursue new ways, and see the world in a different light every day. Discover new places. People. Faces. Gestures. A world of unexpected opportunities.
In 2006 a small group of skilled and dedicated Danish developers united around a mission: to open the world. Challenging the dogmas of the flight industry, they created momondo: a free, independent online flight search offering full price transparency across the market. Putting their highly specialized skill within coding, robot building and programming to work, they provided people with an un-manipulated listing of all flight prices in the entire world – and made it available to everybody.
momondo builds on a rare blend of humanity and technology, infused by the Danish founder and entrepreneur Thorvald Stigsen, who possesses a unique mix of creative intuition and mathematical skills from his diverse background in it-programming and modern theatre. The ambition was and still is to create a global brand – not merely a functionality like most competitors, but a bold and colourful travel universe to unite users, inspiring to meet the world eye to eye.
Inspirational travel search is not just a matter of data, it is bringing data to life. Giving them a voice, a tune, a colour and an expression – transforming them into insights that open our eyes to new possibilities and paths of adventures.
In the end it is all about people. Bringing people to exchange new ideas and share genuine stories. There is nothing like being there looking each other in the eye.
