Brno-based SkyPicker just raised $500K and acquired WhichAirline

The Brno-based startup Skypicker, a booking engine for low cost flights, recently secured $500K in seed funding from Touzimsky Airlines.

Skypicker was founded in 2012 and was initially funded with $24K from a Czech entrepreneur and angel investor named Jiří Hlavenka. In December 2013, Skypicker.com also acquired its competitor WhichAirline.com, a meta search engine for flights. WhichAirline.com, which is also based in Brno, was founded in 2010 by Lukas and Barbora Nevosad.

Skypicker’s booking engine for flights already operates with an extensive database of budget flights in Europe. According to GoalEurope, Skypicker now plans to expand sales of tickets from Europe to the rest of the world, specialising in the low-cost segment.
