Fresh from launching a service to allow users to get detailed search results based on their physical location instead of just nearest airport, Travelfusion has also integrated a mapping device.
The UK-based consumer-facing and B2B metasearch engine now allows users to select any location on a Google map for the From and To fields of a trip.
The map automatically works out the postcodes/zipcodes and then returns results based on the point-to-point parameters.
The system also allows users to use maps to view airports within their region (All London, for example) and obtain results for individual departure points.
The TravelFusion system is now moving quickly to position itself ahead of the Zoombu project from Oxford, UK.
Zoombu recently finalised a round of funding but is still in closed beta and unlikely to have the same spread of destinations and departure points as TravelFusion has launched within its point-to-point product.
