As reported in the New York Law Journal, the firm paved the way for Fareportal Inc., one of the largest online travel groups in the country, to move its New York City-based headquarters one mile uptown to the Sports Illustrated Building.

Fareportal relocated in December from 213 W. 35th St., where it had been a tenant since 2004, to 135 W. 50th St., where it leases space on the fifth floor from investment firm AllianceBernstein.

“The move to 135 W. 50th St. represents an important milestone in our company’s history,” said Sam Jain, CEO and founder of Fareportal.

Founded in 2002, Fareportal has more than 1,800 employees and seven offices in four countries. More than 300 employees are now housed at its space at 135 West 50th Street. In addition to its Web-based portals, Fareportal provides other services such as travel offices, call centers, mobile applications and online sites reaching more than 15 million travelers who perform more than 30 million searches monthly.
