A flights comparison engine is being hosted for the first time by travel media company Lonely Planet.

The firm has partnered with global travel search provider Skyscanner to launch the own-branded system.

The mobile-optimised search engine sits within the booking section of recently redesigned LonelyPlanet.com which claims a community of more than 1.3 million members.

Lonely Planet digital editorial director, Tom Hall, said: “This is an exciting partnership for Lonely Planet. Skyscanner has provided the customisation and flexibility to enable us to fulfil the needs of our growing, global audience.

“It is also a crucial step in our journey to make every part of the travel experience bookable on LonelyPlanet.com.

“Our site is evolving to become a one-stop hub for travellers, providing them with inspiration, and the information and tools they need to plan and book a trip. ”

Skyscanner head of B2B, Filip Filipov, added: “Skyscanner is delighted to be providing its flight search capability to Lonely Planet, enabling it to offer its millions of customers an easy and comprehensive way to search for global flights.”
