Via.com is an Indian online travel agency. In early 2006, Via.com was started by Vinay Gupta and Amit Aggarawal in a small garage in Bangalore when they were solving the problem of how to make travel easier for the consumer. They saw a very fragmented travel market in India, primarily driven by cash, which was lacking quality products and services. The idea of selling travel FMCG style was born there.

Launched on July 28th, 2006 as flightraja.com and incorporated in May 2007, Via has silently revolutionized the Indian travel industry. In 2011, Flightraja Travels, parent company of Via.com, has acquired Jalandhar based travel company TSC Travel Services Private Limited. Lifemojo, the healthcare company based in Bangalore, that originally started as real time health services providers, and later moved on to selling products online through an e-commerce platform had been acquired by Via in 2012. In January,2013 Travel package website, TravelMasti.com had been acquired by Via.

Its major competitors are MakeMyTrip, Yatra and Cleartrip etc.
