[TechCrunch] Hipmunk Lands A Big Acorn: ITA (And Soon Google?) Will Help Power Their Airfare Results

Hipmunk exists to disrupt the flight search experience online. Obviously, the key to this is to have the best and the most results. The Hipmunk results have already been solid. But they’re about to get better thanks to a key partnership.

Announced today at the PhoCusWright conference, Hipmunk has signed an agreement to use ITA Sofware to help power their airfare results. Specifically, they’ll use ITA’s QPX product to look up airfare pricing. Those results, combined with Hipmunk’s tech, should make the service even better.

Hipmunk is one of the companies trying to change the poor experience of setting up travel online. It’s awful.

Sounds like Adam & Steve had a productive PhoCusWright Conference presentation :) I hope my mustache and I represented hipmunk well here in SF at the Web 2.0 Summit.
