Ahoy launches REAL-TIME flight inventory search engine (beta)
When you search for flights on aggregators and search engines, the result you are seeing are cached availability and pricing from flight inventory databases. Doing it like this substantially reduces the time it takes to fetch and show you flight results. Also, search requests against flight ticket inventory is limited, so its more cost efficient to fetch all data a few times a day, and show you speedy, but outdated, results.
Have you ever found a perfect flight?
It has the right price and at the right time, just days before departure. You can’t believe your eyes, clicking quickly to book it. Only when landing on the next page do you find out that the price is higher, or the ticket is no longer available for sale.
If you book flights far in advance, or if you are fairly flexible on time (tourist behaviour), then this doesn’t matter too much. However, if you need to be in a specific airport tomorrow at 9am, then this back and forth finding tickets which are no longer there, or arriving on pages with higher prices can be a royal pain.
Our search fetches only real-time results
Initially it will take a few extra seconds than what you are used to, BUT when you click on the flight you want, and go to pay *swoosh* no surprises.
You won’t know what to do with all that extra time you suddenly have on your hands. You can grab a cup of coffee or do some light stretching. ☕️
