After acquiring a flight info software company (ITA Software) in 2010, Google added a new category to Google.com for searching results related to domestic U.S flights. The Flight Searchfeature however was limited to desktops desktops only, until now.
Google was working hard for a long time to make it easy for finding flight results directly from Google.com on mobile too. And the result paid off! So, from now onwards Google users will also be able to find flights departing from the US on their mobile device.
Now, when you will search for flights between different places, on your mobile you will notice a table which will display available flights including duration and prices. The table will offer you the option to adjust dates on the page or click any flight to further research and book your trip.
To great extent, the new flight feature will prove useful for users who prefer portability. The feature on mobile browser promises many benefits as on desktop but with more ease.
