SAN FRANCISCO - Google is elevating the quality of its search results for airline tickets.
The Internet search leader's revised approach to airfare queries appeared Tuesday in a newly opened "flights" section of Google.com.
It provided the first glimpse at how Google intends to use the tools it picked up from its $676 million purchase of leading airline fare tracker ITA Software.
The deal raised fears that Google would use its power to stifle competition in the online travel sector, prompting the Justice Department to demand a series of concessions before approving the acquisition in April.
The flights section includes a map showing the round-trip cost to fly to several cities from where a search request is being made.

Experts, enthusiasts, owners and journalists agreed – Orb seemed like the best chance at a Triple Crown champion since Affirmed in 1978.
Oxbow has won the Preakness, ruining Orb's bid to capture the Triple Crown.
Baltimore police said Preakness revelers behaved themselves for the most part in the hours leading up to the big race.
