Andrew started SkyAlliance in 2019. They detail the beginnings of their company in their Starter Story interview: 
Q: How did you get started on SkyAlliance?
It all started at Heathrow Airport. I was and currently still work at the airport as a security officer in Terminal 5.
When I first started the role I had learned how to develop software, code and also web design. However, I didn’t know what direction of business to pursue with these skills. In the role of a security officer, you interact with the masses of passengers passing through every working day.
I would often come across a certain type of passenger that really concerned me. Passengers who had missed their flights. I once met a lady who was distraught about missing her flight to New York one Sunday afternoon.
It was her first time flying. She opened up to me about how she was charged £200 more to rebook her flight. I thought to myself that this was totally unacceptable and I wanted to help this lady, but at the moment in time I could not do anything to assist her.
That’s when the idea of building a travel search engine sparked into my head. “What if I could build something to help people like this?” (I actually said that to myself). So I got to work. Within a year I had built my initial platform. Now to validate that everything worked perfectly I thought I’d share my platform with some of my work friends. The only way to validate everything was up and running to perfection was to wait for my first booking.
