Google Flights takes off in Singapore to aid travellers

As the year ends, Google has rolled out a new feature in Singapore christened Google Flights that will help travellers compare flight options and explore new travel destinations.

Google Flights can be accessed via most mobile devices, including tablets and laptops

Users can look for the best routes and fare prices simply by keying in the search terms ‘Flights to’, followed by the name of the travel destination of their choice, in the Google search bar.

In addition, users can compare flight options based on "preferred dates, pricepoint, airlines, connecting airports or even explore flying to alternate airports", Google said in a press release.

Google Flights will also offer users with tips on how to find the best prices for a particular route, when selecting departure and return dates. This will be prompted in the notification bar.

Google said, “Users who need more time to decide on their flights can choose to track a flight and receive email notifications to monitor price changes and travel tips.”

Google can also act as a guide for the people who cannot decide on which countries to travel to as they can get inspiration from the Explore section, which offers ideas on where to go based on popular destinations or activities they are interested in. 

“If you want to get away for a holiday next month just choose 'January' and a trip duration like 'two weeks' to see the dates with the lowest prices to visit each place," said Google in the press release.
