Expedia is also focusing heavily on mobile expansion. Khosrowshahi said the company has “excellent traction,” especially with downloads on iOS devices. Next up: Android donwloads, which trail iOS downloads.
“One of the muscles we have to work out and flex is how to drive Android downloads in general,” Khosrowshahi said, adding the company’s app, across Expedia brands, has 150 million downloads.
Expedia is continuing to optimize its websites on mobile, a process still in its early stages. Thus, mobile conversion rates and length of stay trail their desktop counterparts. “We’re working very hard to build conversion,” Khosrowshahi said.
