Google launches quick flight lookup tool

Aims to make searching for flights easier

Google has launched a quick flight lookup tool, allowing users of its search engine to easily find flights to and from various cities in Australia and the world.

The search function works when users of Google type in their current city, flight destination and precede this with the word “flight”, which then brings up the flights available on that day.

Users are also able to type in the name of one city after the word “flight”, with departure information from the one location appearing in the search results.

While the program currently only works with major cities and is in beta, Google has already made it available in 10 languages.

In a blog post from Google, the search engine giant said flight information is one of the most popular things users of Google search for, and that it hoped to expand into more tools in the future.
