Snap Travel Center, which helps consumers purchase airline tickets and travel trailers through its website, is looking for $400,000 to purchase a plane ticket, a trip to a theme park and a helicopter, according to a regulatory filing.
The filing by the Los Angeles-based company comes as the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) and other regulators are working to crack down on the practice of online travelers toying with flight tickets and buying travel trailers.
Last month, the FAA fined Snap Travel for $1.2 million for selling an online flight plan that did not have any information on where the flight was scheduled to take place.
The Federal Aviation Regulations prohibit the sale of any flight plan “unless the person who sold the ticket or trailer had an active FAA ticketing account.”
According to the filing, the company said the goal is to help consumers purchase plane tickets with ease and avoid the problems of dealing with ticket brokers.
The company said it is also “committed to providing accurate, up-to-date information on the prices and availability of available flights.”
The filing did not specify how much the company is looking to make.
Snap Travel has not responded to requests for comment.
The FTC filed the case in late March to enforce the federal law that bans online sales of tickets and transportation trailers.
The agency said online ticket brokers were “peddling and selling counterfeit and pirated tickets” in 2015.
In its filing, Snap Travel said it has a history of improving its ticketing service and said it believes the FTC’s action is justified.
