A NEW innovation from
Cheapflights.co.uk has given ‘Esc’ keyboard keys everywhere a new lease of life with the launch of its innovative EscEscape (pronounced ‘Escape Escape’) browser extension tool, putting a range of short getaway options just two-taps away from users.
Launching in the UK, US, Canada, Australia and New Zealand, and South Africa, ‘EscEscape’ is a free-to- install extension for Google Chrome users. When a user taps their keyboard ‘Esc’ key twice, a live flight search runs to find the cheapest, quickest and smartest return flights to nearby #destinations.
Results are pulled from Cheapflights’ own search engine API and the users’ nearest airport is detected as their departure airport. The flight results open in a new browser tab and will be the cheapest option for a weekend break in the next eight weeks. The user is then free to go ahead and book if they like the look of what they see – if not, another ‘double tap’ of the Esc key throws up a new option.
“We want people to rediscover their ‘Esc’ key, and make it their shortcut to escaping for real - double tap quick,” comments Andrew Shelton, Cheapflights’ Managing Director.
Initially, a choice of five destinations will be featured each day, selected at random from the top 200 searched-for #holiday hot spots on the Cheapflights website and app, per market. For the UK, US, Canada and South Africa, only flights within a five-hour flight time are selected.
