The new fund raise is significant with the global aviation industry going through its toughest times. The investment will help Mystifly to continue to strengthen its product and technology, data science & machine learning capabilities & addressing airline payments inefficiency while weathering the COVID19 storm, said the leadership team at Mystifly. The leadership team added that a fund raise amidst the crisis reflects the confidence of our investors on the business and the industry pain point & opportunity Mystifly is solving.
Rajeev added that “The era of airline retailing & efficient payments has begun and the current crisis has made this transition faster than what was anticipated earlier. Airlines will significantly improve their bottom-line by saving on payment costs and becoming new age retailers as they can make more relevant offers, including services with higher margins than just the flight seat price. There is no doubt that Retail Airlines will be the new talk of the town in the coming months, just as how Low Cost Carriers were about 10-15 years back.”
