New Travel Web Site Offers Revolutionary Tool for Searching and Planning Flights

Optifly.com is a new tool for finding low cost flights and getting a visual picture off routes for the best experience in planning travel.



    ST. LOUIS, MO, April 17, 2009 /24-7PressRelease/ -- A new travel Web site is giving consumers access to a revolutionary tool that can help them quickly search for and find low-cost flights.

The one-of-a-kind travel Web site, located at Optifly.com, employs the latest technology to offer advanced features that users won't find anywhere else. Optifly is the first and only tool that provides flight options using a combination of low-cost and major commercial carriers. "Given that there are over 200 low cost carriers that provide cheaper flights and also fly direct routes that many of the major carriers do not, considering them in your flight options can save you significant time and money," said Bryan Cooley, CEO of Atama Group LLC, which operates the travel Web site.

Optifly takes a unique approach to flight search technology. It factors in all of the options--not just the most common ones or those that generate the greatest profit for carriers. With Optifly, traveler can actually save money using major commercial carriers and dominant search engines such as Expedia. "For instance, Cooley explained, "we found tickets to Columbia for $300 less than the Expedia defaults by forcing a connection through Miami. Not only did this save money and allow for flying on the same dates, but it also saved flying time and required one less connection."

As another area of distinction: Optifly is the first and only tool that allows users to "visualize" their flight routes. "This is very important because it gives you better introspection into your trip," Cooley said. "You can see when you might be flying out of the way or notice other places that you can stop en route."

Travelers can use Optifly to save money on tickets to almost everywhere, including China, Paris, New York City and Cancun. And they can search for low-cost tickets to their destination in record time. "Instead of waiting 60 or more seconds for a result on Expedia or Orbitz, Optifly provides answers in less than a second," Cooley said.

With the cost of air fares, Optifly represents a very valuable and timely tool for budget-conscious consumers and business travelers. For more information about the unique travel Web site, visit www.optifly.com or contact Marketing Director Jessi Elgin at (888) 372-3640.
