The English version of Uber expands with the option to also book flight tickets.
Before that ditch the company a partnership with online travel agency Hopper. Financial details of this are not known, but it is likely that the companies will share that income.
Uber says it aims to provide a “door-to-door” experience across virtually every conceivable mode of transportation. In addition to taxi transport, it also includes Uber Boat (with Thames Clippers), train tickets (National Rail and Eurostar) and bus transport (National Express and megabus)
Hopper connects to Uber through its B2B product Hopper Cloud.
Uber saw first-quarter gross revenues from transportation rise 40 percent to $5 billion (PDF). This resulted in net sales of USD 4.3 billion (+72%).
