Kiwi.com is an online travel agency with amission to move people from any A to any B affordably and conveniently. We developed our own algorithm for finding flight tickets. We created virtual interlining; and we're combining flights, trains, buses, ride-hailing services, and even city micro-mobility in our search.
Our company was founded in 2012 in Brno, Czech Republic, and it's still a young scale-up. The idea for building our product came directly from our CEO Oliver who realized how complicated it could sometimes be to travel smoothly and find suitable flight connections. He wanted to make a difference and make travel better; he had the vision of how to do it, and he started building the team. At the time, the company had only two employees, and today Kiwi.com has its offices in Brno and Prague (the Czech Republic), Bratislava and Kosice (Slovakia), London (UK) and Barcelona (Spain). Forbes awarded us as the most successful Czech startup, and throughout all these years, we reached the point of having more than a thousand employees spread all over the world!
