Bing and Kayak Team Up Against Google

The companies announced today that in the coming weeks, Kayak will provide flight search results in the U.S. for Bing Travel. Financial terms were not given. Connecticut-based Kayak and Microsoft’s Bing were already allied against Google’s acquisition of Cambridge, MA-based ITA Software. Kayak filed for an IPO in November, sparking lots of discussion about its future strategy. You can read more early commentary on the Kayak-Bing partnership at All Things Digital and Tnooz.
