AirTroductions Built by DataArt Reaches 10,000 Members
AirTroductions, the first website allowing one to choose a seatmate before boarding your commercial flight, built by DataArt for Airkarma, achieved a major milestone when it registered its 10,000th member, in just over four months since launch.
Developed by DataArt, AirTroductions is scalable and customizable to every airline passenger's needs and requests and can grow with the industry. AirTroductions immediately shows travelers everyone else who has entered their profile for the same flight, and for a small fee ($5.00 round trip) users can contact anyone on their flight. If they like each other, they can switch their seats at the airport.
AirTroductions currently boasts members from over 75 countries and virtually every airline. The site supports journeys which consist of single or multiple consecutive flights, and provides an automatic match search and notifications on particular matches. The portal's front end incorporates a slick design and intuitive functionality, while the administrative interface integrates an embedded Content Management System, with highly customizable and easily administrable features.
"Our growth has been nothing short of amazing," said founder Peter Shankman. "DataArt has managed the technical aspect of scaling up the site without a hitch," he said. "With 10,000 members, we've proved the model works. Now it's time to really grow the site and take it to the next level, where every traveler has multiple matches on every flight," he said.
