Expedia, Inc. (Nasdaq: EXPE), the world's leading online travel company, today announced its entry into India with the launch of Expedia.co.in (http://www.expedia.co.in). Expedia.co.in is the newest addition to Expedia, Inc.'s global portfolio and is the seventeenth Expedia(R) branded site. Its launch marks continued momentum for Expedia in its global expansion efforts, and further emboldens the company's leadership in the Asia-Pacific region.

"The launch of Expedia India provides us an additional foothold as we continue to invest aggressively in Asia to match the enormous scale and potential of the region," said Dara Khosrowshahi, CEO, Expedia, Inc. "Our goal is to grow our international revenue to half of our total revenue, and burgeoning travel markets like India are key to achieving that goal."

In 2007, Expedia, Inc.'s international revenue accounted for 32 percent of worldwide revenue, up from 28 percent in 2006. The online travel market in India is projected to have strong growth potential, and Expedia is looking to establish a leadership position in the market.
