In this day and age where social media and e-commerce are ruling the digital space, half a dozen travel e-commerce companies have plans to take about 1,500 people onboard in the coming year. Most of these hirings would be done for technology, product development and marketing profiles. This has come at a point when most startups are finding it hard to stay afloat. However, the travel industry has its own reasons to not get affected by the downfall in the startup sector. With frequent flash sales that have made flying cheaper, leisure travel is the new in thing for urban Indians. With this, the travel market is showing signs of promise, and travel companies like Goibibo, TravelTriangle and iTraveller have plans to increase their staff to at least double of what already is. Other established players, like Yatra, MakeMyTrip and Cleartrip, have plans to hire for their technology teams. For working professionals too, travel space is an exciting place to be. "Travel is a great place to be in because it's so realtime and dynamic. I like the energy of constantly being updated and ahead of the curve," Vaibhav Arora, digital marketing manager at TripHobo, told ET. These perks include easy access to travel and hotel deals, not to forget constant updates about discounts and good times to book airline tickets.
