Skift Take

Momondo Group looks like it is working out some of the duplication from the 2011 merger of Cheapflights and its Danish rival, Momondo.

Metasearch travel company Momondo Group is restructuring its UK operation.

Commercial director Sarah Hanan is leaving Momondo’s Cheapflights unit as part of the shake-up with an unspecified number of other roles are also under threat.

UK-based Cheapflights bought Denmark-based Momondo in 2011 and eventually rebranded itself as Momondo Group. The enlarged company has grown steadily and is forecasting an increase in revenues of 30 percent year-on-year in 2016.

Momondo does metasearch, comparing flight and hotel prices in search results, while Cheapflights started as a deal-publisher and has been transitioning to metasearch.

A spokesperson for Cheapflights said: “We’re currently in consultation with a few members of our London team, as part of an organisational review exploring how we mitigate duplication and streamline delivery to accelerate our growth even more.

“We can confirm that commercial director Sarah Hanan has chosen to leave Cheapflights and our meta sales function will now report in to our global team based in Copenhagen. Our UK newsletter operation will be staying in London, reporting in to managing director Andrew Shelton, and is unaffected.”

TTG was the first to report Hanan’s departure.
