United Airlines launches the first-ever ‘Map Search’ feature
United Airlines recently announced that it’s the primary U.S. airline to introduce an interactive map feature powered by Google Flight Search Enterprise Technology. Customers can access Map Search on United.com to simply compare and buy flights, supported departure city, budget and site type, including popular park, skiing and cultural destinations.
This new digital tool displays fares during a map view, allowing customers to simultaneously compare and visit a spread of destinations during a single search. Customers can apply over a dozen filters to their map search, including viewing non-stop only flights, specific or flexible dates, and one-way or round-trip options.
Additionally, customers can set their preferred departure city and maximum price preference, and filter options supported the sort of destination they’re looking to go to. In addition to the filter options available on Map Search, MileagePlus members also can use the tool to look at all of their past travels with United. With the “Where I’ve Been” feature, the map will highlight all the destinations a customer has traveled to with United.
Linda Jojo, Executive vice chairman for Technology and Chief Digital Officer said in the press release that they’ve reinvented the way people look for flights and introduced something new for their customers that’s simpler, provides better results and is straightforward to use. She added that leveraging the facility of Google’s Flight Search technology, they are ready to provide an all-in-one solution that streamlines the search process and allows their customers to more easily find the flights that suit them the best.
