Google Flight Search reaches France, Italy, the Netherlands, Spain and the UK

Google Flight Search reaches five European countries, skips the backpacking trip

While Google Flight Search covers the far corners of the Earth, many of the people who live in those corners haven't had a similar option to explore the world of air travel. Google is taking at least a small step toward ending that discrepancy with a fresh expansion to Europe. Jetsetters in France, Italy, the Netherlands, Spain and the UK can now find flights to and from many parts of the world, with prices and languages tailored to their home countries. As before, travelers can both see real-time prices, gauge the best (read: cheapest) time to book a vacation and filter flights through criteria like prices, timing and WiFi. There's no surprises for locals if they've had the luxury of using Flight Search before -- we just wish we'd had access in time for our recent trip to Barcelona.
