Skyscanner, a leading global travel search engine, recorded a 70% increase in flight searches from Delhi to Kolkata from 18 to 24 May, 2015, compared to 11 to 17 May, 2015. The increase in domestic searches to Kolkata is expected to be triggered by Delhiites travelling to Kolkata to witness the IPL finals scheduled on May 24, 2015 at Eden Gardens.

In addition, Skyscanner commissioned a nationwide survey, revealing the habits and preferences of 1,000 IPL fans across the nation. The survey revealed that Virat Kohli has stolen the hearts of more than 50% of the female respondents as the hottest cricketer this IPL season. On the other hand, AB de Villiers – the master of 360 degree batting – clinches man of the tournament with the support of a third of the respondents.

The survey also revealed that close to 40% of female respondents are dissatisfied when their better halves are enjoying the action packed matches. Interestingly, close to 30% of them are likely to join in and cheer for their favourite IPL team.

With 7 days to the IPL finals, fans can continue to give tips to players on playing smart cricket and travelling smart as part of Skyscanner’s #SkyscannerSmartsters campaign, with a chance to win free flight tickets to anywhere in the world.
