What We're Building

For the longest time, innovation in travel has been driven by a focus on the distribution of more, better or faster content to travelers. Sadly, innovation without the underlying product offering changing has its limits.

When we founded FLYR, we realized that particularly because of the industry’s focus on distribution, a wealth of data is available to those that can process its sheer volume. With access to various such data streams, we started understanding how products such as airline tickets are priced and what signals could help us to look into the future.

Using this insight, we create, price and distribute new financial solutions that enable travelers to lock a fare, pay over time (0% APR, No credit check), or get a discount thanks to a predicted near-future price arbitrage.

Our team consists of prize-winning data-scientists, software engineers that dream code at night, and business-building entrepreneurs with backgrounds in travel and enterprise technologies.

We have the most amazing pastry place next door :)
