Airline employees and their families have access to seats that aren’t shown on Kayak and Priceline, making ID90T a valuable source for a very specific type of travel search. It’s current customer base and funding indicates the platform will continue to penetrate the 22 million-strong market.

ID90T, a startup building an airline employee travel platform, announced a $3 million second round of financing today.

The funding was led by Gerbera Capital and Mexico Ventures, with participation from existing investors Baroda Ventures and Thayer Ventures.

The company’s main product is its a cross-carrier ticketing platform, a booking tool, that lets airline employees automatically reserve seats for themselves and their eligible travelers. Employees can use the platform for business or travel purposes and book flights on their airline or other carriers.

ID90T’s goal of reducing employee ticketing costs for airlines appears to be working given its 32-strong client base, which includes American Airlines, Delta, Untied, Virgin Atlantic, and Aeroflot.
