Meet the new Flight Search Panel and Calendar Fare Insights. Travelers constantly seek the best flight deals and frequently modify their travel dates to secure the lowest available fare. Now, airline marketers can entice travelers to make purchases by directly showcasing insights into the best fares by travel class and across dates within the flight search panel.
Airlines can enhance the shopping experience for users searching for the best deals by utilizing Everymundo’s new Calendar Fare Insights feature within the Flight Search Panel. This feature helps users find what they are looking for more quickly and efficiently at the beginning of their search.
Meet the new Flight Search Panel + Calendar Fare Insights
Airlines can place the new Flight Search Panel + Calendar Fare Insights across all airTRFX pages, offering the option to incorporate fare-related details into the calendar date picker. This innovative feature in the Flight Search Panel enables airlines to guide travelers in choosing the best travel dates or destinations aligned with their preferences and budget, while also driving high-quality traffic to their booking engine.
What is the Calendar Fare Insights feature?
The Calendar Fare Insights represents the premium feature of the new Flight Search Panel airModule. This feature, based on data availability, enables airline marketing teams to incorporate fare information within the calendar modal. By color-coding fare tiers, this functionality allows marketers to display the best fare options and provide insights on the lowest travel days for the upcoming year. For example, an airline can showcase its fare tiers as $110+, $344+, and $577+. These tiers will display fares as LOW, MEDIUM, or HIGH for the route specified over the next year.
Each tier is calculated by taking the lower and higher fares from all available future fares collected for the route selected, and setting them in three groups (33% lowest fares into the lowest tier, the following 33% into the Medium, and the higher 33% into the high tier). The starting price of each tear is the one that will appear on the calendar. Each tier is calculated based on the selected route and next year’s available data.
The main benefits of the Calendar Fare Insights feature:
- Highlights dates based on low, medium, and high fare tiers for easy selection before proceeding to the booking process.
- It has an easy-to-understand, intuitive, and user-friendly interface.
- It’s personalized to the airline’s brand and aligns with the design of the airTRFX pages.
- Compatible with Flexible Dates and Blackout Dates integrations.
- Available on both small and large viewports.
- Additional Low, Medium, and High indicators (dots) are displayed for accessibility compliance (CAAC 2.0)
Tiers are displayed in this premium calendar, calculated based on the traveler’s selected route, journey type, and travel class. In addition, this calendar feature can be adjusted to match your airline’s brand guidelines as defined on the EveryMundo Design System (EMDS).

Is this feature supported in all versions of airTRFX?
All airTRFX pages (both Template pages and Custom pages) support this feature using the latest technology and the most recent version of the Flight Search Panel. You can consult your Customer Success Manager to ensure your current versions are compatible with this new premium feature.
Can I personalize the color selection of the fare insights tiers?
Yes, you can personalize the price tiers’ color palette according to your customer’s preference while following the default/standard options.
What is the expected behavior if no fares are available on the EveryMundo platform for any given date? Can the user still book?
Highlighting their tier provides additional information about Fares Insights. Users can book all days from the search panel, and this feature offers extended fare information for those dates.
Why did EveryMundo use tiers and color-coding rather than specific daily fares?
The color-coding approach provides various benefits to travelers and airline marketers. It tackles the issue of handling long currencies in limited UI spaces, especially on mobile devices. Furthermore, it enhances user-friendliness when scanning for travel dates. This UI technique, commonly used by major market players, eliminates the need for users to learn a new behavior. Moreover, it decreases the chances of fare accuracy problems while motivating users to initiate a search.
Is this feature available for Packages and Hotel Search Panels?
No, we don’t have it available at the moment, but it’s included in our product roadmap. We plan to enable this feature across our products based on market demand.
How can I activate this feature on my airTRFX pages?
This product is ready for use and doesn’t require development. To acquire the Flight Search Panel + Calendar Fare Insights and inquire about estimated delivery timelines, please reach out to your Customer Success Manager.
