ANYONE TAKING A flight in the near future will be able to rely on Google for updates as it now includes Irish airlines in its flight search service.

The service, which works similar to sites like Skyscanner, allows users to compare flights between different airlines, looking at the cost and times each one is leaving at.

Users can also search for flights under a number of different requirements such as how many stops each one takes, their price, the airline used, times of departure and how long the flight will take.

Flight from both Aer Lingus and Ryanair will feature in the service alongside other international airlines like KLM, British Airways, and Air France.

The head of communications for Ryanair, Robin Kiely, said the partnership is “one of the latest digital innovations we have rolled out” and will be followed by other services like mobile boarding passes, and a new app and website.
