New Delhi, January 13, 2015 (Online News India): If you love to travel and shop around for great deals, Flight Search can offer inspiration and help you find the best flights available. Now you can search directly for flights within Google or access google.co.in/flights to quickly find, compare and book flights from your mobile device, tablet or desktop.
Let’s say you live in Chennai and are planning a Republic Day weekend getaway. When you access Flight Search, you’ll immediately see the price and duration of flights to several popular destinations you might like to visit, based on your preferences and previous searches. If you set your dates and tap to expand the map, you’ll instantly see live prices for destinations around the world. A long weekend in Singapore sounds nice.
When you click on the departure date field, you’ll see a calendar with the lowest fares for the route highlighted for each day. You can also use the lowest fares graph below the calendar to see how prices may fluctuate based on the season, holidays or other events. Scrolling through a couple of months quickly shows you when it’s a great time to fly.
Once you select your departure and return dates, you’ll be presented with a list of ‘Best flights’, which represents the best tradeoff between convenience and price. You can always view other flights by scrolling through the summary list or selecting, “Show longer or more expensive flights.”
You can easily select your outbound and return flights and book your flights by clicking on one of the blue partner book buttons.
Gaurang Shetty, Senior Vice President Commercial, Jet Airways, said “Giving our guests access to our flights for bookings through Flight Search will offer another convenient channel to shop for and book flights via their preferred search engine. This is just one more way we’re collaborating with Google on new and innovative technologies.”
“Goibibo.com is the first OTA in India to partner with Google for Flight Search. This is in line with our philosophy and core differentiation of delivering the fastest booking experience to our travelers,” said Ashish Kashyap, Founder and CEO of ibibo Group.
