Airport car service Wingz announced today that it closed an $11 million series B round led by Expedia. The startup also announced that it appointed Chris Brandon as its new CEO.

The investment, Wingz said, will be used to “extend the company’s U.S. footprint,” which already operates in 18 airports, mainly in western America.

Wingz, which said it has “more than 20,000 active users,” allows travelers to schedule in advance airport rides with fixed prices. As an obvious Uber and Lyft competitor, Wingz filed a petition last week to start offering its service to Los Angeles International Airport.

Altimeter Capital and Salesforce.com CEO Marc Benioff also participated in the investment.

Correction: Wingz has 20,000 active users.
