Back in September, we launched
an early look at our Flight Search feature
, which was developed to help people find faster, more flexible, and more useful results for online travel searches.
Flight Search results have been available by clicking on “Flights” on the left-hand navigation bar on the search results page, or by going directly to
. But we’ve heard from you that you’d like to see more options to find flights and prices even more easily and quickly.
Starting today, we’ll begin showing flight information right in your Google search results on certain flight related searches. For example, if you search for [flights from San Francisco to Las Vegas] you’ll see a table that shows available flights, including duration and prices. You can adjust dates on the page, or click any flight to be taken to Flight Search to further research and book your trip.
Over the next couple days, you’ll start to see the flight results appear for searches whose origins and destinations are currently supported by our Flight Search feature. In the short term, those results are limited to domestic US flights. The
flight schedule feature
will continue to provide information about nonstop routes around the world and across 11 languages.
Once you've booked your flight and are on your way, if you're traveling through one of the many U.S. airports whose floor plans we
to Google Maps for Android, you can easily see where you are and what's around you from the convenience of your mobile device.
