should be resalable
Empowering travel brands with cutting-edge
A major problem to solve
During the Covid crisis, we realized that the travel industry needed a tool to offer customers more flexibility while still selling non-refundable fares. Fairlyne was born.
Building a team
Gilles, Michael, and Morgan teamed up in the Accor IT executive committee, working on one of the most exciting hospitality distribution platforms in the world.
The big decision
We decided it was the perfect time to start building our dream resale platform. Fairlyne was officially launched, and we moved into our first office.
We successfully raised a pre-seed round from key C-Level executives in the travel industry. Shortly after, we nailed the development of the Ouigo resale program and launched it a few months later. Looking at the impressive first week results, we knew we were on to something big! Shortly after we were selected by PhocusWire as one of the most innovative travel startups for 2023.
Building tomorrow’s travel
To build on our early success, we decided to raise our seed round and secure a 3M€ investment from some of the top European and American VCs: SpeedInvest, Kima Ventures, Evolem and FJ Labs. In the meantime, we recruited Yann Cohen-Addad to lead our Sales team.
