Travel guide publisher Lonely Planet has made one of its first major changes since being acquired and turned to Skyscanner to power its flight search engine.
The move is being touted as "the first time that Lonely Planet has hosted an own-branded flight search engine", although the ex-BBC owned brand has worked with Skyscanner rival Kayak for many years to feature flight search tools within its main website.
The latest version of flight search, provided by Skyscanner, sits within the travel "Bookings" section of the site (although bookings are made on the supplier airline or OTA's website) alongside search tools for hotels, car rental, adventure tours, sightseeing tours and insurance.
The flight tool is also available on the mobile version of Lonely Planet.
Lonely Planet has worked with a number of providers for its flight search over the years - including Kayak from 2005, which the following year then sat alongside meta white label provider Global Travel Market for European users and Berzurk (which later became Wego) for Asia-Pacific.
Skyscanner will be handling flight search for users in each region.
The remaining travel service providers on the recently redesigned Lonely Planet include Booking.com, HostelWorld and Expedia Affiliate Network (for hotels), GA Adventures, Intrepid and World Expeditions (for adventure tours), Viator (for activities and things to do) and CarTrawler (for car rental).
Lonely Planet bought travel planning startup TouristEye for an undisclosed fee in November last year.
