TripAdvisor185 TripAdvisor Buys Flight Info App GateGuru[1]TripAdvisor (TRIP[2]), like most travel companies, is always looking for new ways to enhance its customer’s experience. In its efforts to do this, TripAdvisor has acquired GateGuru[3], a mobile app that provides real-time updates on travel conditions.

The details of TripAdvisor’s acquisition of GateGuru are undisclosed.

“GateGuru nicely complements our existing flights products and we look forward to working with the GateGuru team as they continue to manage the GateGuru app and add great functionality to the TripAdvisor mobile experience,” Steve Kaufer, co-founder and CEO of TripAdvisor told TechCrunch[4].

TRIP stock was largely unaffected by the purchase, sliding marginally early Wednesday.
