We could be seeing a “Google Flight” app headed to the Android market soon as the search giant has announced that their acquisition of ITA Software – organizers of airline data – has closed. The U.S. Department of Justice finally approved the deal last Friday after nearly a year of antitrust trials. (This is what T-Mobile and AT&T have to go through, in case you didn’t know.) Now that it’s closed, Google will begin integrating their team into the Google Plex to begin work on “exciting new flight search tools for all our users.” Read those last three words carefully – surely a flight application for Android will come of this. Google Flight doesn’t sound like a bad name at all. [via Google]
