Google may soon have another weapon in its travel search arsenal. While only in testing stage right now, the company has a new tool out called Flight Explorer. You can access it at

TheNextWeb appears to have spotted the tool, and Matt McGee at Search Engine Land got a statement out of Google:

Flight Explorer is a an experimental feature of Flight search that allow users to explore flight destinations. The feature enables users to consider multiple destinations and multiple days at once, all using live prices, quickly.

According to McGee, it’s the “most fully realized implementation” of the data Google gets from its ITA Software acquisition.

You can browse fares for flights by trip length, number of stops, airlines, duration, outbound times and return times.

The feature is not part of Google’s Flight Search offering, but if the test is deemed successful, it most likely will be.
