Flight Search shows you a map of how much flying to different cities will cost.
Google announced an update to its Flight Search service for booking travel that’s now available for Android tablets such as Google’s own Nexus 7 and the iPad.

Noting a big increase in the percentage of people using tablets to not only search for, but make their travel purchases, Google today announced an update to Flight Search.

A study by Telemetrics found that 46% of all U.S. tablet users who search for travel also purchase travel services on the device.

“We also know that people use their tablets differently than they use their desktop,” said Google’s Rani Manoharan, a user interface designer, in a post at Google’s ITA travel blog. “That’s why we’ve optimized our Flight Search experience for those who prefer to search with a tablet android, such as a Nexus 7 or an Ipad.”

Among other features, the Flight Search service presents you with a map of the U.S. showing major cities with a price next to each showing how much it would cost to fly there from your current location. Touch a city to start the reservation process.

“With the touch of your finger, you can easily explore places to visit on the map and see prices updated in real-time for each destination,” said Manoharan.
