Airbnb is determined to become a hub for planning a person’s whole vacation.

The company’s latest effort is Flights, a project that looks to compete with sites like Priceline and Expedia, according to a report from Bloomberg. This way, Airbnb could become a destination for people seeking air travel as well as places to stay. Flights could also be one of the new sources of revenue it’s looking for as it continues to grow.

Already, Airbnb has been looking for extra initiatives to boost business: Last month, the company made it possible to book tours and restaurant reservations through Airbnb Trips.


The project is still in early development, and an initial public offering is likely in the next 18 months, Bloomberg reported, citing unnamed sources.
