Kayak displaying Routehappy flight amenities in searches

Routehappy has entered into an agreement with Kayak that enables Kayak to display flight amenities in its search results.

Routehappy ranks flights according to the amenities they provide, and data from its Scores & Amenities application program interface (API) will be integrated into Kayak search results. That data includes information on the aircraft, seats, layout, WiFi, entertainment, power outlets and food.

Amenities information is displayed in the form of small icons in the search results. When a user hovers over the icons, a pop-up window provides more information. Further flight details can be accessed by clicking a link in the pop-up window.

For instance, a plug image denotes that in-seat power is provided on a flight. The pop-up window tells the user that it’s available on both the departing and returning flights in question. The further details section informs the user that seats are equipped with both power and USB outlets.

According to Routehappy, it has data on almost every flight worldwide. The company regularly researches amenities by aircraft, cabin, schedule and route.

Kayak is a subsidiary of the Priceline Group.
