“Mobile is one of the fastest-growing channels in travel. In fact, a lot of our current traffic growth is coming from tablet and mobile. Our audience is doing everything from their phones, and yet when it comes to booking a flight, it can still be a fairly painful process,” said Lucas Lain, director of mobile development, StudentUniverse. “This application makes booking a cheap flight on a mobile phone as seamless as ordering food or requesting a cab. It is a must-have for student travelers looking to find cheap flights.”
