MUMBAI, Sept. 16 (Xinhua) -- India's second-largest online travel platform, EaseMyTrip, has expanded its international footprint to the Philippines, Thailand, and the United States as part of its second phase of global expansion, the company said in its filing with the Bombay Stock Exchange Thursday.
Established in 2008, the company has incorporated wholly-owned subsidiaries in these three countries after having established in the United Arab Emirates (UAE), Singapore and Britain earlier in the first phase of expansion.
"We see a wider global market open for travel, and we believe that EaseMyTrip is well-poised for explosive growth internationally," said Nishant Pitti, CEO and Co-Founder of EaseMyTrip.
The company anticipates a huge pent-up global demand for the travel and tourism sector in the coming months and hence has expanded into new territories.
It will also launch a localized travel search engine in each global subsidiary. Currently, the search engine developed for the UAE is live, and the subsidiaries in Singapore, Britain, the Philippines, Thailand, and the United States are set to follow suit.
