Skyscanner is a flight search engine that allows users to browse for flights via price and location. Additional tools such as fare graphs, allow users to compare flight prices of any given route over a month period, or the price of weekend flights from any given city. The site is multilingual, offering flight searches in over 25 languages including Chinese, Russian, Portuguese, Polish, Spanish and Japanese. Skyscanner does not sell flights directly; instead, the site can be used to find the cheapest deal for a desired route after which users are automatically transferred to the airline or travel supplier_s website to make their booking directly. Users can search for flights without having to enter specific dates or destinations, creating a very flexible flight search platform. Skyscanner_s proprietary indexing technology means that search results can be found much more quickly than with meta-search engines.
