This is not just about simple web links any more.”He added: “With Yahoo! OneSearch 2.0, we are fundamentally changing the way consumers use the internet on their mobile phones.”According to the firm, it takes one to two seconds for the technology to recognise the search and another three to translate it into a relevant result on the handset.ReturnOne wayMulti-cityFromAdd nearby airports ToAdd nearby airportsDepart14/08/2019Return21/08/2019Cabin Class & Travellers1 adult, EconomyDirect flights onlySearch flights Map RelatedSkyscanner marks mobile success with 20m app downloads53% of flights searches are now mobile.Chinese airport riots and why caution kills: Alistair Hann InterviewedAlistair Hann, Skyscanner CTO on riots in Chinese airports, Android v iOS, and the next big thing in travel techTravel firm launches new online communityFlight Centre has launched a new online community where travellers can meet to discuss their experiences.last_img
