Accommodation services provider Airbnb has launched Airbnb Trips.
The company said Trips is a people-powered platform designed to make people's travel easy in three key areas — Experiences, Places and Homes, with Flights and Services to be added in the future.
Airbnb CEO Brian Chesky said:"Until now, Airbnb has been about homes. Today, Airbnb is launching Trips, bringing together where you stay, what you do, and the people you meet all in one place. We want to make travel magical again by putting people back at the heart of every trip."
Trips launches with around 500 Experiences in 12 cities worldwide — Los Angeles, San Francisco, Miami, Detroit, Havana, London, Paris, Florence, Nairobi, Cape Town, Tokyo and Seoul.
In 2017 the service will be launched in 50 more cities.
Airbnb is planning to introduce booking of flight tickets and tables in restaurants.
