CAAS launches online travel portal offering best airfares

SINGAPORE: Singapore's latest travel portal offering some of the best airfares around is not the brainchild of a dotcom entrepreneur.

Instead, it is an effort by the Civil Aviation Authority of Singapore (CAAS) to enable users to compare the best deals for flights into and out of Singapore at a glance and to make bookings.

At, a search engine will comb over 100 websites in real time for the best airfares on offer.

Search results will include fares on both full-service airlines and low-cost carriers, with the lowest airfares featured upfront.

The portal also has information on accommodation, tour packages and upcoming events.

CAAS' director-general and chief executive officer, Lim Kim Choon, said the portal would also help travellers explore the Asia-Pacific region from Singapore, and is part of the authority's ongoing efforts to enhance Changi Airport's attractiveness as an air hub.

ED's notes:

Best air fares or best packages or not.. i do not know and will adopt the wait and see but wat i see is that our Almighty Gahmen has decided to up the recession speed and unemployment rates by entering a already dying trade of middlemen.

Well Done $ing@hb0re... Truly Uniquely
