Vayant Travel Technologies says its recently released FastSearch technology offers the same as Google Flight Search, with the difference being that it offers worldwide fares.
The company, which unveiled the solution at Travel Technology Europe last month, aims to provide cost effective air search for travel companies with results delivered in miliseconds.
FastSearch, which is purported to work without caching, has evolved in recent weeks with the development of a user interface to demonstrate its sub-second search responses to travel industry customers.
The solution is currently in beta and the company is hoping the calendar and map-based interface will attract industry players to sign up.
According to chief commercial officer Brannon Winn, Vayant is not setting out to develop interfaces but wants to show customers what they could build themselves.
He adds that the company is taking on three to four customers, mainly mid-to-large European online travel agencies, for the beta and plans a full commercial launch at the end of April.
Meanwhile, a Google spokesperson declined to comment on Vayant's claims, adding:
Since sharing our first look at the Flight Search feature back in September, the response has been overwhelmingly positive, and we’re continuing to focus on developing and delivering the best possible experience. Having great competitors is a huge benefit to us and everyone in the search space. It makes us all work harder, and at the end of the day users are the ones who benefit.
