Routehappy, a startup product differentiation platform for air travel, has announced a worldwide agreement with Google to integrate flight amenity data from its Scores & Happiness Factors API into Google Flights results. This integration will allow Google Flights users to see and compare amenities by flight, including seat type, and availability of in-seat power and wi-fi.
“Air travel has never been more differentiated, with airlines investing billions of dollars in their products and fundamentally changing how they sell flights. Airlines and distributors need data, content, and tools to manage their product differentiation,” said Robert Albert, Routehappy CEO. “Google Flights is innovating flight search in powerful new ways, including offering lightning fast search and now more comprehensive amenity data for flyers.”
