4/9/2008 Update: AirDig is Now Open to the Public.
If you’ve followed this blog for any amount of time, you may have seen our posts about finding cheap flights. After putting together the list of sites that we’ve always had success with, we realized that there was no good tool or search engine out there that would let you search ALL the sites we liked through a single interface.
There are 5-10 websites that we’re always found good results with and each one would require you to enter in airports and dates individually, which takes a lot more time. There are a few sites out there (like Booking Buddy) that do offer a centralized search of other sites, but 1. they open up in new windows and 2. their “recommended sites” are seemingly biased to what’s more profitable to them (higher commissions) rather than what might be better for you, the traveler.
So since there was no search tool out there that would do everything we wanted it to do, we created AirDig.com.
It lets you search all the most popular flight search engines in one place, on one page. You can take notes as you search, and they’re automatically saved for you. It’s the best way to ensure you’re getting the best possible deal on airfare.
The site is currently in private beta, so we’re giving this blog’s readers our first batch of invites. If you want to be one of the first people to test drive this new Super Flight Search, drop us an email or a comment and we’ll send you an invitation to sign up.
P.S. We’re giving away the first 300 invites.
