Flight search site Fly.com is planning to be in the same markets occupied by parent company Travelzoo, although the order in which new categories will be added appears to have changed.
Fly.com was originally scheduled to launch in Germany at the end of March 2010 but this was delayed and the site now be unveiled in the coming weeks, according to new vice president of business development in Europe, Aaron Ritoper.
Such delays aside, coinciding with when the previous head of Fly.com, Brian Clark, left the business, Ritoper says the global roll-out for the site could could follow a similar path to when Travelzoo stretched out across Europe and elsewhere after finding its feet in the US.
To date, Fly.com is only available in the US and the UK - the latter market getting a bit of a PR push this week under the umbrella of an official launch, although in reality the site has been up and running since October 2009.
In recent months the site has added most of the main online travel agencies and established direct connects with the airlines, Ritoper says.
Interestingly, Clark's previous plan to launch hotel and car hire categories on the site by the end of 2010 appears to have been altered for another category entirely.
Ritoper, a former member of the rival Skyscanner team in the UK, says a package holiday category will be unveiled "fairly soon" rather than arguably more complicated sectors such as car hire and hotels where - once again - direct connects are more reliable.
However, package holiday search in meta is notoriously difficult to build and then scale, according to an executive from a rival site, although Fly.com has a distinct advantage as the mothership Travelzoo has existing relationships with multiple operators and could feasibly stream in content from its existing agreements.
