Welcome to the friendly skies of Google Airlines – Google airlines flight booking service, that is. Google has rolled out one of their new services, and this time it’s Google Flights, which allows you to book airline reservations through Google’s flight engine instead of one of the more established competitors, like Expedia or Travelocity.

Explains Kourosh Gharachorloo, Engineering Director at Google, of the new Google Flights search service, which incorporates the technology of ITA Software, which Google acquired earlier this year, “when you search for flight information on Google, for example “flights from Chicago to Denver,” you will see a “Flights” link in the left-hand panel. This link leads to our new Flight Search feature, and is offered in addition to the flight schedules which have been available since May.”


According to Gharachorloo, the advantages of the Google Flights search service include:

– Get super-fast results. Speed is critical to all the things we love on the web, and travel planning should be no exception. Making changes to dates, destinations, and filters should be as fast as we hope you’ve come to expect from Google.

– See a simple list of the most relevant flights. Flight Search shows you an easy-to-scan list to help you get to your destination quickly and inexpensively.

– Figure out when to travel. Quickly see which travel dates are least expensive by dragging the date selector forward or backward, or check out the bar chart to compare lots of dates at once.

– Consider your destination options. Flight Search helps you explore possible destinations, letting you filter them by airline, flight time and price. For example, you can use the map and filters to see where you can go from San Francisco within 3 hours for less than $300.

Google says that the two primary factors used in choosing flights are cost and overall travel time.
