Google offers Flight Search to go

Google has been improving its flight and hotel search results over the past few months, adding capabilities and polishing the overall experience. In accordance with that “iterative” approach Google announced today that flight search will now be available on mobile devices.

To trigger the verticalized results, you need to specify that you want to see flights from location A to location B (US only right now). You then get outbound and return date fields, with lists of airlines and prices. If you click through to “more Google flight search results” there’s a richer presentation with a number of filters to help narrow your choices.

Google flight search for mobile is useful in that it can quickly provide users with a sense of prices and flight options “on the go.”
