Easy Trip Planners Ltd on Wednesday reported a 23.4 percent decline in consolidated net profit at Rs 23.34 crore for the fourth quarter ended March, impacted by lower revenue and higher expenses.

Consolidated revenue from operations during the quarter under review stood at Rs 60.9 crore as against Rs 66.47 crore in the corresponding period a year ago, it added.

Air segment bookings grew by 13 percent to 20.5 lakh in the fourth quarter as compared to 18.2 lakh in the year-ago period, the company said.

In the ongoing fiscal, the company said it aims to continue its growth across the air ticketing segment and expand its hotels and holidays segments too. It will look to open corporate offices across UK and US markets as part of efforts for global expansion.

The company has already established its corporate office in Dubai.

On the outlook, Easy Trip Planners said, ''We believe that the next few years are set to be the golden period for Indian OTAs (online travel agents) as the travel and aviation industry, with significant support from the government, will witness a strong growth trajectory.''
