Evaly, leading e-commerce platform in the country, has acquired online travel agency Flight Expert recently.
Flight Expert is conducting operations all over the world. It has partnerships with more than 500 airlines and more than 9 lakh hotels and resorts in Bangladesh and international markets.
The company has more than 50 employees in its Dhaka and Chittagong office.
Though it couldn't be verified how much Evaly invested on Flight Expert, sources said it was valued more than $5 million by third party valuation process.
Arif R Hossain, Chief Marketing Officer (CMO) of Evaly said, "Even if Flight Expert is fully acquired by Evaly, the company will operate independently. The previous board of directors will still be in the current board of Flight Experts, and the scopes will be further increased by hiring more manpower."
Evaly hopes to make a significant contribution to the tourism industry through Flight Expert and to continue working on more industries in the future.
Evaly officially started its journey on December 16, 2018. In past two years, more than 5 million consumers and more than 20,000 large, small and medium entrepreneurs have joined this platform, though it has bad reputation for delayed delivery.
Besides, Evaly is also coming up with various new initiatives in the online business sector. After E-food, they are moving forward with E-jobs and E-health.
