About Scott Keyes, Founder & Chief Flight Expert

In 2013, Scott Keyes found the best flight deal he'd ever seen: $130 roundtrip from New York City to Milan. He wasn't planning on going to Milan, but simply couldn't pass up such a good deal.

When he returned home, his friends and colleagues started asking him to let them know the next time he found a great flight deal. The email list he built was the start of Scott's Cheap Flights.

Today, Scott's Cheap Flights serves nearly 2 million members and has a distributed team of more than thirty travel aficionados.
