Google released today its initial version in the US of their new Flight Search, which will compete with websites such as Orbitz, Kayak and TripAdvisor, to find the best airfares.
Google entered this business in April, when the US authorities approved the purchase from ITA Software, which developed the most used flight locator tool.
The aim was to incorporate airfares and routes to the result of someones search in your browser, which can be done now with Flight Search.
The company said that the service provides results very quickly and tells you when are the least expensive days to travel.
“This is only a first glance: the takeoff, not the final destination”, said Kourosh Gharachorloo, Director of Engineering at the Californian company, adding that the flight offers which appear on each search is still limited to some US cities and only reflects roundtrip fares in economy class.
Internet users can access to Flight Search through www.google.com/flights.
