Maps at the time of searching flights

Finding the Google API is no longer surprising in a large number of Internet businesses. One segment where it has been most successful is in the case of the sale of airline tickets, which seems to have found a good reception.

For a time I had considered that these services were unnecessary since there are travel operators, but every day there are new sites, and I myself had to resort to one of them on my last trip when I had to change my return itinerary at the last minute. Although the flight solution could be solved by my travel provider, having just 40 minutes to find a hotel would not have been possible if these sites did not exist; It was only necessary to enter the date, city and ready ... to choose.

I was able to make the reservation for a low price, fly quietly without worrying that I would arrive at an unknown destination at 10 at night. 

One of these sites, with the greatest presence in Spain is Destinia, which apart from the simple flight search engine has added extra functionalities with the Google API. See for example, if I am looking for Flights Madrid - Mallorca, just select the itinerary details such as dates, number of companions ... and press the orange button.Flights madrid palma de mayorga











The lower map is built on the Google Maps API that shows the origin, destination and a straight line that unites them.

Additionally, you can see useful information such as time zone, temperature and weather data of both places.

In conclusion, more of the integration of maps, which is interesting because of my affinity with the theme, the functionality of the page is very robust in the search for different solutions related to travel such as:

  • Beaches
  • Hotels
  • Condos
  • Cars.

And of course, flights Cheap.
