Travel search engine Kayak will be releasing a free iPad app in time for the Apple computer’s arrival in the UK later this month.
It will feature flight search services with an “iPad-optimised user interface” for UK consumers.
It will also allow users to simultaneously see flight search results and the site’s filtering tools, and will integrate user’s search history.
After the initial launch the company has announced plans to rapidly expand features including hotel search, car rental search, trip itinerary management and “new features designed for the unique iPad experience.”
Kayak chief architect, Bill O’Donnell said: “We believe the iPad is an amazing platform for our travel search and planning services, so we’re very excited to develop a Kayak app in time for the iPad launch.
“More than 1.3 million people have already downloaded our mobile applications across iPhone, Android and BlackBerry devices, and we expect Kayak users will be early iPad adopters as well.”
