With the launch of Pokemon Go app and the never ending list of emoji's being created (yes! I am a fan of the Kimoji also) I am not surprised in the least, that we now have a #WorldEmojiDay.
Who would have thought it?!
I pretty much use Emoji's in everything from emails, text messages and even to respond to people...just using emoji's!
So when I heard Cheapflights, the global flight search and travel deals website, is celebrating World Emoji Day on Sunday 17 July 2016 by launching the world’s first emoji flight search function, I had to tell you all about it!
My Italian & Photography skills are getting better on this trip! Il dolce far niente - "the sweetness of doing nothing" 🇮🇹 I took this on the veranda of the #Monterosso Train Station with a🍺 in hand! #travelextakeover #italy #views #postcardfromitaly #travelblogs #travel #travelblogger #tbloggers #relax #travelphotography #lifestyle #ildolcefarniente #wanderlust #goodvibesonly
We all love travel...that's one of the reasons you like my blog, correct? So you'd be delighted to know, that Cheapflights have made booking with them that bit easier!
Cheapflights has mapped 40 destinations across the world with popular emojis based on a few common associations with each destination.
For example, users can search using a koala and a sushi and get flights from Sydney to Tokyo, or a union jack flag and bike for London to Amsterdam.
Launching initially as a prototype, Cheapflights is the first flight search engine to use its proprietary search technology in this way. The release follows the launch last month of Cheapflights Chat – a Facebook Messenger bot providing flight, hotel and weather results based on you simply asking the question plus Cheapflights Chat now has the emoji search functionality as well.
Emoji search is available on the Cheapflights mobile site in select markets globally including the UK, Australia, Canada, South Africa and New Zealand and eventually on the Cheapflights app by the end of 2016.
Does this make you want to book your travel through Cheapflights? And how well do you know your emoji's? Do you have any emoji's you'd like to create?
