Google today announced that its Flight Search tool has launched in Ireland.
Irish users will now be able to compare flight times and prices directly from the Google search results page.
Irish travellers will also be able to click through to the Flight Search website (www.google.ie/flights) and conduct more advanced searches.
Ryanair and Aer Lingus will both be represented in Flight Search on Google.
Cera Ward, Country Manager Large Customer Sales, Google Ireland said: "Traveling is fun and we think the research behind the journey should be fun too. We want Irish travelers to be able to search, compare and book their flights as quickly and efficiently as possible and we want them to enjoy the process too. That is why we have developed a flight search tool which is interactive and easy to use as well as working hard to build relationships with many different airlines across the world."
Declan Kearney, Aer Lingus Director of Communications said: "Aer Lingus is delighted to partner with Google on Google Flight Search. Airlines today need to offer customers as many flight and service options as possible, so we're excited about this new way of connecting customers with our great value fares. Today to coincide with the launch in Ireland we're offering E20 off a return fare to Europe for travel in May while flights to the USA are from E269 (each way) and Canada from E239 each way in May."
