Travel software company Datalex has reported a 24% rise in revenue for the first half of the year to $30.3m, when compared with the same period in 2016. 

This included a 9% rise in platform revenue to $12.8m.

The firm saw double-digit growth across a number of its other key metrics over the same comparative timeframe, including adjusted EBITDA (+17% to $5.4m), and profit after tax (+21% to $1.6m).

Datalex said growth in the first half of this year was fuelled by the addition of Swiss International Airlines to its platform - along with two Chinese carriers.

The company makes the software that airlines use to sell flights and other products and services online.

It lists Aer Lingus, JetBlue and Lufthansa Group among its customers.

Commenting on the results, Datalex CEO Aidan Brogan said: "The market opportunity continues to expand as more airlines undertake the transformation necessary to prosper in the digital economy.

"We continue to see a strong new customer pipeline across global markets.

"Our priority is to continue to invest in scaling the organisation and new platform capabilities to generate new revenue streams and execute on the market opportunity."
