Travel price-comparison website Cheapflights.co.uk is planning European expansion. The London company, led by chief executive David Soskin, takes complex data – as many as 14m prices from hundreds of travel companies – and presents them in a simple format online. Its fast-growing American business now accounts for about a third of revenue. The firm says it may consider a trade sale, flotation or private-equity deal in 2007. Sales rose 57% a year from £2.8m in 2003 to £6.9m in 2005.
