New York Times and Expedia

An announcement today out of the US reveals, if proof was ever needed, that newspapers are indeed busily positioning themselves to make the most of the new opportunities associated with travel.

Online travel giant Expedia is to partner with the New York Times to power its online booking engine via the travel section of the NYTimes.com website.

Users, the press release says, will have access to Expedia's "latest technology and deep travel content, as well as the widest selection of vacation packages, flights, hotels, rental cars, cruises and in-destination activities, attractions and services".
