Bangalore: Google is planning on bringing its popular ‘Flight Search’ service to India, creating jitters among the local travel sites, which fears the search giant’s dominance on web may cause their downfall, reports Economic Times.



Flight Search, the flight aggregator service from Google first launched in the U.S. and then in parts of Europe, lets users compare fares offered by airlines and book tickets directly from airline websites. It is quite popular with the travelers for its innovative service model that allows open-ended searches based on criteria other than destination; for example, a user may search for flights within a range of times and a budget and be offered various destination choices.



While the news about the launch is just a word from the source close with Google’s affairs in India, but the company’s 'Start Searching India' campaign, which was launched last month, aimed at providing users with instant responses on weather and flight status, among other things, is largely considered as a precursor for Flight Search launch in India. And Google India said in May that it does not comment on future plans or speculation when asked about its plans the launch.
