unveils new search product

2nd May 2007 has launched a new Flight Search product that searches multiple
airline and travel agencies and features a revolutionary new user interface
that allows users to easily scan and filter thousands of airfare and flight
combinations in real-time.A flight search entered on is sent to all of Bezurk’s airline and
travel agency partners who respond to Bezurk with prices, flight details and
seat availability. Results are then standardized and augmented with rich
product information before being streamed to the user’s web browser. This
saves the user from having to visit each website individually and to perform
the same search over and over in order to find the best flight deal.

A search for a busy city-pair such as Singapore-Hong Kong often returns a
hundred or more airfares and thousands of different flight combinations. The
new Bezurk flight search interface is designed to simplify the sifting
process by allowing a user to apply multiple product filters to the results
set in real-time and to see at a glance in the Best Fares Matrix the best 3
prices for each airline.


“We’ve been beta testing and tweaking our flight search product for several
months now,” said Ross Veitch, Chief Product Officer, “Our new
version includes more booking partners, is significantly faster, has more
powerful filters and is much easier to use than our beta versions. For
travel shoppers in the Asia Pacific region there is no better way to save
both time and money when looking for the best deals on airfares.”



The rich functionality, fat client interface utilises cutting edge AJAX
technology to make sorting, filtering and comparing travel products
effortless for the end user. It also allows Bezurk to progressively stream
search results from each partner straight to the user’s browser without
having to wait for all partners to finish returning results, delivering a
fast and intuitive user experience.

Features in the new user interface include:

* A comparison of prices inclusive of all airport charges, taxes, fuel
surcharges (where available) is shown so a consumer can make a true price
comparison between competing suppliers

* Filtering of search results by airline, price range, departure/arrival
time, number of stops, stopover airports, plane type, airports, cabin class
or booking website

* Sorting of search results by price, departure time, arrival time or flight

* Detailed flight information including: flight #, flight arrival and
departure times, stopover information (where and for how long), type of
plane, whether it is a code-share and if so which airline is operating the

* Fare details including booking partner name & website URL, base fare, tax
and total fare (where available), fare type and fare rules (where available)
