Etihad Airways has launched a partnership with Google to make it more convenient for travellers to view the airline’s flight schedules and fares on the search engine’s flight search tool.
Using Flight Search, travellers in Canada, the US, the UK, the Netherlands, Spain, France, Italy, Germany, Poland and Ireland will be able to explore and compare flights to and from any of Etihad Airways’ 103 destinations, and view live ticket prices for more than 1,400 of the airline’s weekly flights.
Flight Search can be accessed by clicking on “Flights” on the navigation bar on Google’s search results page, by going directly to http://www.google.com/flights , or by entering the flight search terms on Google and then clicking on the sponsored unit that appears.
Once users are on the Google Flight Search tool, they are able to quickly and easily conduct searches for different flight routings, use an interactive map to explore possible destinations and view live ticket prices.
Once users have selected the flights they want, they can click the “Book” button to proceed to the Etihad web site to purchase their tickets without having to fill in their flight choices again.
Flight Search can be accessed on tablets, smartphones and desktop computers.
