TripAdvisor Flights Brings Greater Transparency and Selection to Online Flight Searches
More Flyer Power: Enter destination, travel dates, number of travellers, including options for return, one-way or multi city and TripAdvisor returns hundreds of options to find the best price and itinerary

TripAdvisor®, the world's largest travel site*, today announced the launch of its flight search engine in Australia, allowing travellers to find the perfect flight for their travel needs. The flight search engine, now available on, offers a number of innovative features including a first-of-its-kind Fees Estimator for all those extras that some airlines charge and airline ratings from real fliers.

"Over the past three years, TripAdvisor Flights has helped tens of millions of travellers across North America and Europe uncover worldwide flight choices and the lowest airfares," said Bryan Saltzburg, General Manager of TripAdvisor Flights. "With the launch of TripAdvisor Flights in Australia, we are excited to bring our flight search to even more travellers around the globe. Now, Australians will have access to the most comprehensive set of tools to research flight options, from our innovative Fees Estimator to airline ratings from fellow fliers."

TripAdvisor offers one of the widest selections of flight choices available on the Web. Travellers will be able to see direct booking links to several travel companies in Australia including Expedia, Zuji, Jetabroad and BYOJet. Domestic and regional low-cost carriers will also be included.

Australians travelling within Europe will also benefit from unprecedented travel options with TripAdvisor's display of comparative rail itineraries, alongside flight options via Rail Europe Australia.

Additionally, TripAdvisor Flights offers a number of helpful features to make flight search much easier, including:

• An innovative Fees Estimator that helps travellers better understand the true cost of their flight with airline baggage, meal and credit card fees, all in a single Australian dollar display.
• Thousands of airline ratings from real fliers show how different airlines stack up across eight flight experience categories.
• Availability of flight search through the TripAdvisor app and mobile website.
• Colour-coded seat maps from SeatGuru that enable travellers to distinguish the best seats from the worst.

TripAdvisor Flights is available from today on and through the TripAdvisor mobile apps for the iPhone, Android, Palm and Windows Phone 7 smartphones, and the iPad.
