    CheapAir.com today announces the release of its new mobile app featuring voice-activated flight search. The CheapAir app, available now for iPhone and iPad, is designed to make it as easy as possible for people on-the-go to search for the best deals and most comfortable flights by talking instead of typing.

    Now, when CheapAir users search for flights from their mobile device, they can simply say a request like, "Chicago to New York, May 5th to the 10th" or "L.A. to Vegas tomorrow coming back Sunday" and the robust app will find matching results from hundreds of airlines, without the need to fill out a search form. The innovative app uses semantic language technology that was first developed by CheapAir for Easy Search, the revolutionary free-form search experience available on its website. This proprietary technology translates spoken words into a travel query for fast, effortless flight results. App results display the same level of detail as the website, including amenity information like which flights have WiFi, personal video monitors or live TV.

    The CheapAir mobile app comes at a time when the use of mobile phones for travel information is growing significantly. According to The Digital Consumer report by Tealeaf, an IBM Company, 15% of consumers are already using the mobile web for travel services, and 13% are using mobile travel applications downloaded from one of the top app stores.
