Skyscanner to Hire 250 New Staff Members

Online flight search website Skyscanner plans on doubling its workforce next year, by adding an additional 250 staff members.  The Financial Times reports that Skyscanner will finance the additional staff through a combination of cash flow and operating profits.  Skyscanner brought in £33.5m in 2012, through click-through commissions and a percentage of all flights booked through them.

Last year, founder Gareth Williams said Skyscanner would grow tenfold over the next three to four years.  He said they are already bigger that their rival Kayak outside of the U.S. and almost match them in size on a global scale.  More than half of the new jobs with Skyscanner will be located in Scotland.
