Amazon adds bus tickets in India in pursuit of superapp strategy

The Times of India reported that Amazon is in talks to add hotels and train ticketing.

Amazon may have shut down its embryonic hotel booking business back in 2015, but that didn’t mean it was done with the travel sector.

Earlier this year, Skift broke the news that the company was starting to offer flights for sale via a partnership with Indian online travel agency Cleartrip.

The move was part of the plan to bolster Amazon’s position as a superapp, at least in India, and unsurprisingly it hasn’t stopped there. The tech giant has now added bus tickets via a partnership with MakeMyTrip-owned RedBus.

“Over the course of time, [the] Amazon app has become the one-stop destination for the shopping and payment needs of our customers” said Vikas Bansal, director, Amazon Pay.
