“Travellers across the world will now be able to quickly and easily find and compare the best Etihad Airways flights within the fun and easy-to-use Google Flight Search tool,” said Nicola Simionato, General Manager for Google Travel in Europe.
Flight Search can be accessed by clicking on ‘Flights’ on the navigation bar on Google’s search results page, by either going directly to www.Google.Com/flights, or by entering the flight search terms then clicking on the sponsored unit that appears.
