Google Speed Up & Simplify Flight Searches

The horror of having to crawl through a huge list of different flight times has just been simplified by Google. The internet giant has upgraded their search engine so that flights can be found quicker and more efficiently.

All you have to do now is type the word “flight” at the beginning of the search, followed by the city you are going from and to. Mashable has given the example of a flight from Los Angeles to San Francisco, with the search term of “flight la sf” being all that is needed. You can type the full words or abbreviate, it should yield the same results.

Obviously being a new feature, so far Google has listed major airports in major cities, so do not feel too downhearted at the moment if the little airport in your local town has not been given the flash new search treatment. The feature is available in a variety of languages, those being English, Spanish, French, Italian, Russian, German, Polish, Dutch, Brazilian, Turkish and Catalan.

If you fancy a quick last minute journey from your local airport then simply type “flight X”, and all originating flights should be displayed. To see what jets are landing in your airport, type “flights X”. X of course being the name or initial of your airport. Have you used Google’s quick new flight search feature yet?
