Fleapy: No-Nonsense Cheap Flight Hunting
IMO, entrepreneurship and the desire to make stuff are sorely lacking even among college CS students, that’s why I’m always excited to see my peers launching products and businesses.Â A while ago some Purdue studentsÂ created Fleapy, a website which finds the cheapest Air Asia flights. (Don’t ask me how they came up with that random name though, God knows decent, available, 6-character and below domain names are hard to come by these days)
I played with it a bit myself, and was pretty impressed – its simple, well-made and does its job well. Its best used when you’re dead set on getting the cheapest fares possible, and are flexible on which dates/times you actually fly. Really, just a couple of clicks and you’ll be taken to the actual Air Asia page to book your flight – no sign-in required! Here are some screenshots:
Hopefully Fleapy takes off – its a good example of home-grown entrepreneurship, and it shows that there is space for new ideas, even in the Malaysian market. So whether you’re looking to book a flight right now or sometime in the future, check it out!
