Google Inc. (NASDAQ:GOOG): It is undoubted that the journey by air is one of the best way to travel. In addition, if the airlines provide you with added technological freedom, they the journey will surely become much better. It is true that more and more flights are now providing free WiFi service to its customers in order to provide a better journey. The barriers of not using a cell phone in an airplane while taking off and landing has been broken way back but not for all. So now, Google allows you to find out the flight that will allow you the technological freedom, so that you plan accordingly.
According to the reports, Google has teamed up with Routehappy, to provide the users with various information related to the flight that they wish to take. Routehappy is a flight rating service that collects reviews and data from various travelers and airlines and drafts it to provide the users with an insight to what they must expect from the airlines. The users provide ratings, which they call ‘happiness rating’ determining how happy they are with the flight.
The good thing is that from now on, whenever you search for a flight on Google, the insights from Routehappy will be displayed with the general information like arrival time, departure time, etc.. This will certainly allow the users to plan their trips in a much better way. Insights to be displayed includes information like availability of WiFi, power outlets to charge your devices, etc.. Although, these sets of information might seem to be trivial issues, but during a long journey, these things do matter.
Gianni Marostica, Director of Business Development, Travel, Google, said in a statement:
“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.”
Another good thing is that Google will not restrict the services under any boundaries. Thus, with the service available to all, it will be a much better air way journey, when you can choose the best one for you in all aspects.
