Apart from the deals and offers on travel, what distinguish EaseMyTrip android app from other travel apps is its exclusive feature of Airplane Chat. This feature was introduced with a motive to break the monotony of airline journeys where passengers are asked to keep their phone on flight mode.
"Long-haul flights happened to be really boring for us and even in-flight entertainment could not help in killing time during the journeys. So, I always used to think that there should be something that not just keeps us engaged but can also help in networking with like-minded people," said CEO EaseMyTrip, Nishant Pitti who introduced the app along with his brothers Rikant and Prashant.
"This idea clicked into our mind when I along with my brothers were discussing the same thing and we finally agreed to develop a tool that may help the travelers in spending their travel time comfortably. And the result came in the form of Airplane chat feature of our Android app," added Nishant.
Earlier, the company announced registering profit worth Rs.30 crore in the previous financial year, despite expanding rapidly in terms of infrastructure, revenue and product offerings. It recently completed 10 years of operations, clocking a turnover worth Rs. 2000 crores. (ANI)
