Got a flight and want to make sure it’s on time?

Don’t worry, google got it set for you.

Google is announcing new features for its plane-ticket search, including offering more information about flight fares, and predictions of flight delays even before the airline knows, Phone Arena website wrote.

Google Flights will be able to offer you the reasons behind flight delays, however, predictions will only appear if Google was at least 80% confident with its call.

The search giant uses a combination of historic data, recent flights status information and algorithms to come up with flight times.

All it takes you to look up flight information is to type the flight carrier and flight number or route into Google to know all about it.

The Google Flights search engine is available from your mobile (or desktop) browser at www.google.com/flights.
