Although Uber started as an online car-hailing service, it has been expanding its business since then. It has launched various transportation booking services in the UK, and recently added a flight booking service.
According to sources, Uber has started to provide domestic and international flight booking services in the UK, and hopes to become a travel booking platform that provides a wider range of services.
They have expanded their reservation service to trains and buses in the UK last year, and it is said that the train reservation service is quite popular in the local area, and the usage figures have increased by about 40% every month since the service was launched.
This flight reservation service is a cooperation between Uber and the reservation platform Hopper. Every time a successful reservation is made, Uber can draw part of the commission from it, but the commission sharing ratio has not been announced.
This one-stop service is expected to facilitate users to book point-to-point complete travel, including Uber from the airport to the hotel can also be completed on the same platform.
The service is only available in the UK for the time being, and it remains to be announced when similar services will be available in other regions.
