Last year, Google launched an experimental flight search feature called Explore Flights which allowed users to explore destinations and provided a list of fares over time for choosing their flight according to the trending prices on different dates. Explore Flights still exists as a standalone feature, but many of its characteristics have been incorporated to the Flight Search feature.

Have a look at this video from Google to get a deeper insight into the updated Flight Search feature:

Some of the changes to the updated Flight Search feature are mentioned below:

Full Screen Map View: The updated feature gives users the option of panning the entire world on a map. They can simply click on the map and get a full screen view of all the cities they wish to fly to. Also, users can view photos of the top attractions for each city and see the change in prices during holidays or any time of the year.

Personalized Recommendations: When the user enters a particular destination, Google will automatically generate cards for the most popular places in the region based on the user’s search history. The users can also see a map for the location of these places and the lowest fare as well as time taken to fly to each of these places.

Google assures, with the updated version of the Flight Search feature, planning a travel will be much more fun and interesting.
