As part of its ongoing growth and expansion strategy in South America, Kayak acquired Mundi, Brazil’s first online travel metasearch site.
Mundi will continue to operate as a separate brand, a short statement from Mundi said.
Brazil’s online travel market is “soaring,” according to Phocuswright, and distribution companies describe the market as healthy.
Kayak entered the Brazilian market, which is becoming increasingly competitive, in May 2014.
Tnooz will add additional details to the story as they emerge.
