MakeMyTrip plans to increase its franchisee base by 50%

MakeMyTrip announces plans to grow its franchise business in the country’s top 100+ cities. The company began 2023 with 146 active franchisees and plans to more than double that number by the conclusion of the calendar year.

Rajesh Magow, Co-Founder & Group CEO, MakeMyTrip  states “India has emerged as one of the world’s fastest-growing aviation markets. The government plans to add another 80 airports over the next three years, taking the number of airports in the country to 220 by 2025. The focus on modernising the nation’s aviation market in Tier 2 and beyond cities will also mean an increased contribution from such cities to the overall business mix. We see this as an opportunity area and have initiated a multi-pronged strategy to penetrate deeper nationwide. The franchise network expansion is part of our broader strategy to serve customers in the top 100+ cities of India. The franchise network will help serve those customers who may be more comfortable talking to someone they trust”.

Jasmeet Singh, Business Head, Holidays & Experiences, MakeMyTrip also added “We are targeting like-minded entrepreneurs who share a passion for travel. Industry expertise is an advantage but not a must. Interestingly, more than 85% of the business partners who have joined us over the past twelve months are from a non-travel background.”
