This additional information will display the flight schedule between two specific cities, which became the location of the user's vacation destination. The search results will be displayed in the box below Google's paid search results.
"This is just a small step to enrich the travel information to be more easily found," said Google Software Engineer, Petter Wedum, reported by the Wall Street Journal, Sunday (29/05/2011).
Flight information service comes seven weeks after the Internet giant is successful in acquiring ITA Software for USD 700 million. For information, ITA Software has specialized in managing the airline data, including flight schedules, availability and prices.
But in his blog, Google said the display of travel information in the search results are not using ITA Software's search technology.
Previously, Microsoft had already been serving a similar service at the Bing. Microsoft's search engine also provides a search for flight schedules and ticket prices.
