Singapore, April 12, 2017: Leading travel marketplace in the Middle East and Asia Pacific -- Wego.com -- has become the fastest loading mobile travel site in the world.
This is a result of implementing Accelerated Mobile Pages (AMP) combined with Progressive Web App (PWA).
The speed outranks other global travel sites with a score of 90, where others have a median score of 51. Google experience is that40 percent of consumers will leave a site if a page takes longer than three seconds to load on mobile, with 79 percent unlikely to return.
Says Honey Mittal, Wego’s Senior Vice President, Product: “By rebuilding the static pages using AMP, and the core search experience with PWA, Wego has decreased page load time from around 12 seconds to between 0.50 and three seconds. Over 70 percent of Wego’s searches take place on mobile and increasing site speed was key to upgrading the user experience, and ultimately increasing engagement and conversions.”
“Slow mobile page loads are intensely frustrating, especially during the travel shopping journey,” Mittal adds, “Wego’s website now opens seamlessly, loading in the same time it takes to open Wego’s popular travel app"
