Google Flight Search:Fear for Yatra,MakemyTrip & Cleartrip

#1 Postby Shivani » Tue Jul 02, 2013 3:35 pm

Google has come out with a great product in the market..A great effort by Google portending the launch of its flight travel search service in India is creating fear among online flight portals, who fear their business model is under threat. As we all know that Google has already proved its dominance in the search engines..Gmail & Youtube are also amongst some of its best products usually browsed by the people.

Flight Search - first launched in the US and then in parts of Europe - it lets users compare fares offered by airlines and book tickets directly from airline websites. It is creating a threat to Makemytrip, Yatra and Cleartrip, that it can really prove to be a damage their business.In response to this they are planning to consider steps to protect their interests, including a possible complaint to the Competition Commission. As they are calling it an issue of serious discrimination when it comes to search online travel ports.

Last month, Google launched a 'Start Searching India' campaign aimed at providing users with instant responses on weather and flight status, among other things, this was called as a curtain raiser to the eventual launch of Flight Search in India. Flight Search is likely to be popular among India's fast-growing internet user base..but Google with this launch has to face some serious issues which are going against it..
