Here’s a New Way to See if Your Flight Has Wi-Fi

1 minute read

In-flight Wi-Fi is an amenity frequent flyers are coming to expect because everything’s amazing and nobody’s happy. Now Google and a startup called Routehappy are working together to make this actually-mind-blowing-when-you-think-about-it luxury easier to find.

Routehappy already tracks various amenity offerings across millions of flights to let passengers know more about what features they can expect before they board their flight. That information will now be incorporated into Google Flights search results to show users whether a given flight offers Wi-Fi, power outlets and other perks.

Some competing flight booking websites like Kayak already present info on Wi-Fi availability.

Google Flights also has some other nifty features, like a year-long summary of flight fares between two cities so travelers can determine what time of year tickets are cheapest.
