MakeMyTrip’s brands, including Goibibo and redBus, will leverage the large customer base of Flipkart to drive online bookings, the company said in a statement.

The deal will kick off with domestic flight bookings in the next few weeks, followed by hotels, bus and holiday packages.

“This partnership will help us reach out to an even wider consumer base and open up the online travel market in a significant way,” MakeMyTrip founder and group CEO Deep Kalra said.
