Travel search firm consolodating three city offices into new 28,000 sq. ft HQ at Quartermile
Online travel search provider Skyscanner has announced it will consolidate three offices to a new headquarters at Edinburgh's Quartermile development.
Skyscanner, which now employs around 140 people, will move all of its staff currently working from three city centre offices to a new 28,000 sq. ft office over two floors at Quartermile One.
The new headquarters will give Skyscanner room to grow its workforce to up to 300 employees.
Shane Corstorphine, Skyscanner’s chief finance officer, said: “It’s been a priority for a while to get the team housed in one Edinburgh office and we think Quartermile ticks all the boxes for our new global headquarters.
“We remain centrally located, are right next door to one of the world’s leading technology research departments and in close proximity to Scotland’s growing Internet start-up community.
“We’ve also got plenty of extra space as our headcount continues to grow.”
Skyscanner says 25 million people now visit its search engine site every month making it the world's fastest growing travel website.
The company opened an Asia-Pacific office in Singapore last September as part of a wider global expansion plan.
Skyscanner was founded in Edinburgh in 2003 by IT professionals Gareth Williams, Barry Smith and Bonamy Grimes.
