Google now shows you which flights offer what features

Has it got Wi-Fi? In-flight entertainment? Fear not, Google Flights has the answers

Google Flights has just received a major upgrade and now lets you check out which airlines offer what features, so you can get exactly what you want.

Flying can be a tedious experience, especially if you're on a long-haul flight with just a book and your iPod to keep you entertained. Well, now thanks to Google Flights, things may have got a bit easier.

Google has teamed up with flight comparison site Routehappy, to integrate their data into its search portal.

This means fliers can now go on to Google Flights to check which airlines offer what amenities, such as Wi-Fi, in-flight entertainment, power sockets and more.

The information could prove very handy, i.e. for travelling businessmen who need internet access to do work or the classic comfort craver, who wants extra leg room to kick back and relax.

Gianni Marostica, Director of Business Development for Travel at Google, said: “We know people are looking for more information about the flights they're taking before they buy, so integrating Routehappy Happiness Factors is a great addition to Google Flights.”

“Now even more people have access to comprehensive flight amenity data and useful flight search information,” he added.

This is a big boon to consumers, as it makes it far easier for users to decide which flights offer the greatest perks.

Robert Albert, Routehappy's CEO, said: “Air travel has never been more differentiated, with airlines investing billions of dollars in their products and fundamentally changing how they sell flights.”

“We're thrilled to be partnering with Google in bringing useful information to flyers everywhere.”
