Google Flight Explorer

Google Flight Explorer

Google Flight Explorer is a brand new feature seen today that will show you ideas for places to visit based on your selection of home airport and the country or continent you plan to visit next.

Just mover-over the graph to check prices for multiple carriers, currently US-based only, which is connected to its usual Flight Search page. This tool is extremely useful to help you explore multiple destinations in a region, for multiple dates, and multiple lengths of stay for carriers working the routes (including any alliances).

You can select filters such as number of stops, airline and departure and arrival time, and the results will update on the page without refreshing. This is an experimental feature of Flight Search that allow you to explore flight destinations and consider multiple destinations and multiple days at once, all using live prices, quickly.

Kayak and many other sites have already been doing this for a while now, but it’s interesting to see how Google Flight Explorer shows you results for different airlines flying to different destinations, all in one page. And in a beautiful manner!
