CAMBRIDGE, Mass.-- ITA Software, Inc., a leading provider of innovative solutions for the travel industry, today announced the launch of its airfare shopping mobile app, OnTheFly, for the Apple iPhone and iPod touch. Airlines and travel distributors can license and integrate OnTheFly into their branded mobile products and booking platforms to take advantage of this new sales and service channel. Travelers can also download the shopping-only version for free from the App Store to search for optimal fares and itineraries.

Built on QPX, ITA’s airfare pricing and shopping engine, OnTheFly offers the same advanced, powerful comparison shopping features used by many travel companies and by ITA’s Matrix airfare search application at OnTheFly enables users to easily shop for optimal airfares for any itinerary in the world and provides comprehensive choices to tailor the search and shopping experience. Specific features include:

* Flexible airport selection automatically suggests additional airports around origin or destination and allows multiple airports to be selected
* Intuitive travel date selector enables users to specify either single or multiple departure and arrival dates in one calendar interaction
* Fine-grained control over search parameters allows users to specify number and type of passengers (such as adult or child), departure and arrival times, number of permitted stops, cabin class, and others
* Easy-to-read chart summaries of search results enable easy comparison among airlines, number of stops, travel dates and airports, as well as total mileage and carbon emissions for each trip
* The ability to build an itinerary flight by flight makes it easy to explore multiple options, with controls for sorting flights by airline, price, departure time, arrival time, flight duration, and number of permitted stops
* Full disclosure of exact airfare calculation, including all taxes and fees, provides all information necessary to make a reservation and purchase the ticket
