Google Flight Search

Dear Readers,

After the phishing issue with my online account i just came out of that tension. Thanks for everyone who mailed me/called me.

Today i am gonna share with you on the new flight search feature that Google has introduced. On July 1st 2010, google announced an agreement to acquire ITA Software for $700 million. This will help all Google users to find better flight information online. Google will not set or sell any airfares but it will allow us for better search in cheap air fares.

The above picture shows the onebox display that Google gives for our search on newark to mumbai flight with the help of ITA software. As per Marissa Mayer, "Once we've completed our acquisition of ITA, we'll work on creating new flight search tools that will make it easier for you to search for flights, compare flight options and prices and get you quickly to a site where you can buy your ticket."

Click here to see the online demo of ITA softwares technology which includes interactive screens, color coded bar's for flight comparison etc.

ITA Software is an airline IT and services provider at the forefront of a new generation of technology that is changing the way the travel industry works.
