My Flight Zone is a well-known travel agency specializing in inbound tours to Sri Lanka. LAYOUTindex designed and developed a brand-new website that focused on being informative to the visitor as well as providing them functionalities such as tour selection, hotel information and flight bookings.
The client approached us as he had identified many shortcomings in design and functionalities in his existing site then. He also had a requirement where he wanted to allow users to book flights using the AMADEUS platform through the My Flight Zone website in addition to providing users as much information as necessary regarding their destination, hotel and tour packages. Considering all these requirements, LAYOUTindex came up with a homepage design that impressed the client so immensely that he left the designing of the rest of the pages in the very capable hands of our design team.
The design of the website focused on two main aspects, promoting destinations such as Sri Lanka and generating inquiries for trips/tour packages. Destinations were promoted by having much information on the website regarding countries, its cities and the activities you can do in that country in aesthetic manner. All the content along with colorful images gives a website visitor a yearning to experience the country in person. We also incorporated advanced search facilities with clear call-to-actions to enable visitors easy navigation to the more popular pages of the website. After an analysis of past website visitors we also found out that the website was accessed by a vast number of mobile users. The design was also made responsive to cater to these users.
Once the design phase of the website was completed, development of the website started. The website comes installed with a powerful content management system that allows website administrators to add/change content (text & images). The system is also configured to auto generate SEO-friendly URLs, titles and meta descriptions for each page that is created via the CMS back-end. Each page can also have customized meta and open graph tags added via the CMS back-end. In addition to this we integrated the Amadeus platform into the website so users can directly search for flight availability and book seats for their trips. This is a very useful feature that many travel agents overlook in their websites.
Some of the programming languages and platforms used in developing this website were PHP, Java, jQuery, CSS, HTML5 and Bootstrap.
