Flightsuit Is Looking to Take The “Work” Out of Organising Business Travel

Flightsuit is an online business travel management solution and one of the 8 startups selected for the River City Labs Accelerator Program, a six-month intensive program that aims to turn startups into scaleups.

The company was founded by solo-entrepreneur Scott Hutchens who was previously both the founding CTO of Ladbrokes Australia and CTO of Flight Centre’s Australian corporate travel business.

Startup Soda had the opportunity to sit down with Scott to learn more about his startup and the persistent problems he sees in the business travel sector. As Scott went on to explain, “Flightsuit’s mission is to take the work out of work travel.  I’ve seen first-hand that the technology needs of business traveller’s are simply not being met. This means that they fall back into slower, more traditional forms of communication with third-party travel agents or using individual websites to book each element of their trip.”

It was this realisation that led Scott to build Flightsuit, a platform that helps busy business travellers book and manage upcoming trips with ease, while also helping their employers understand and optimise spend.
