Visitors to the Skyscanner site have noticed a few changes recently; here’s why…

More airlines
Skyscanner originally focused on budget airline flights however we’re adding scheduled and charter flight prices to our site to increase the number of options for your journey. We have already added over 90 airlines, including KLM, United, Virgin, LOT, XL, and Pegasus, so that you now have access to price information for over 57,000 routes – and we haven’t finished yet. We’ll continue to show you who flies a route in our “Need Alternatives” section regardless of whether we have a price or not, so you can make an informed decision.

Same great search tools
Whilst this work is progressing well, some of our popular search tools such as the graph or calendar price comparison views aren’t ready yet. Budget flights are unaffected but if you’ve tried to search for a scheduled or charter flight from our homepage and haven’t been able to compare prices in the usual way then please don’t worry; our techies are hard at work making sure these views will be available for all flights soon.

Improved search options
Tried our improved route map or scheduled, worldwide search? We have lots of other tools planned to help make your search experience easier and more personal so keep watching this space.

New features
As if all that wasn’t enough, we’ve just added Skyscanner news which features the latest flight search technology stories, airline updates, details of how you can join our team as we grow and tips on top travel topics with Nick’s Travel Bytes. Coming soon – our new Isoprices feature which will deliver a map of best prices for flights from your selected departure airport direct to your computer or mobile every week.

So it’s all go but we hope you can be patient whilst we make Skyscanner bigger and better than ever.
