TravelAdvisor acquires GateGuru

Flight and airport info app GateGuru has been acquired by TripAdvisor.

GateGuru gathers user generated content and other info about airports for flyers and allows them to access flight details including delay information, real time updates on flight status, waiting times at security, weather forecasts, detailed maps and other relevant airport information.

TripAdvisor and GateGuru will work from their respective HQs but will not doubt be working together closely to enhance their joint services. The team will together work to enhance the services offered by the two companies.

TripAdvisor CEO Steve Kaufer said many trips include flights in the itinerary and TripAdvisor has consistently developed products that allow search and pricing information. TripAdvisor also has SeatGuru.com, an award winning application that offers seat maps.

GateGuru will complement the existing services of TripAdvisor. It will continue to work on the GageGuru app while adding more functionality to the TripAdvisor mobile site.
