Google announced that it is now showing flight info right in Google search results on certain flight related searches. This is an extension of the company’s Flight Search feature introduced back in September.
Flight Search was initially available via the left-hand navigation bar on the SERPs, but now they’ll just be the default search experience when Google thinks that’s what you’re looking for.
“ For example, if you search for [flights from San Francisco to Las Vegas] you’ll see a table that shows available flights, including duration and prices. You can adjust dates on the page, or click any flight to further research and book your trip,” says Emmet Connolly, UX designer on Google’s Flight Search feature.
“Over the next couple days, you’ll start to see the flight results appear for searches whose origins and destinations are currently supported by our Flight Search feature,” adds Connolly. “ In the short term, those results are limited to domestic US flights. The flight schedule feature will continue to provide information about nonstop routes around the world and across 11 languages.”

Google has quickly become much more useful for those flying around the U.S. Here’s the video Google released when it introduced Flight Search:
This week, Google also introduced interior Airport maps.
Of course, airports aren’t the only places where Google is doing interior maps.
