About the Company

One jaw-dropping flight deal started it all. In 2013 Scott Keyes found the best deal he’d ever seen from NYC to Milan.
When he returned from that trip, his friends all begged him to let them know the next time he found an amazing deal. Scott’s Cheap Flights (now Going) was born.
Today, Going is a team of more than 70 people serving more than 2 million travelers.
