In FY22, consolidated revenue from operations stood at Rs 235.37 crore as against Rs 138.5 crore in FY21, Easy Trip Planners said.

In the ongoing fiscal, the company said it aims to continue its growth across the air ticketing segment and expand its hotels and holidays segments too. It will look to open corporate offices across UK and US markets as part of efforts for global expansion.

The company has already established its corporate office in Dubai.

On the outlook, Easy Trip Planners said, “We believe that the next few years are set to be the golden period for Indian OTAs (online travel agents) as the travel and aviation industry, with significant support from the government, will witness a strong growth trajectory.” PTI RKL AJ AJ
