Whether you’re traveling from Moscow to Yekaterinburg, or Saint Petersburg to New York, Google Flights can offer inspiration and help you find the best flights available. Starting today, you can use Google.ru or www.google.ru/flights to quickly and easily compare and book flights — from your mobile device, tablet or desktop. And you’ll be able to see local content, local currency and search in the Russian language.
For example, if you choose Yekaterinburg and click on the departure date field, you’ll see a calendar with the lowest fares for the route highlighted for each day. You’ll also see a lowest fares graph below the calendar that shows how prices may fluctuate based on the season, holidays or other events. Scrolling through a couple of months you can quickly see when is a great time to fly.
Once you select your departure and return dates, you’ll be presented with a list of ‘Best flights’; which represents the best tradeoff of convenience and price. You’ll also see similar flights displayed on an easy to scan timeline — grouped by airline, price and number of stops.
