Planning a flight trip ? Cortana can help you with that

2:51 PM
Cortana can now plan trips just by seeing that you got a flight confirmation email. When a flight confirmation email hits any of the inboxes on your phone, Cortana infers you have an upcoming trip and will ask you whether you need help tracking the trip. If you say yes, Cortana tracks this trip in the Notebook, allowing you to find key trip-related information, all in one place — no more sifting through multiple emails or different email accounts to find the information you need.

  • You can now ask Cortana “show me my flights” or “show me my trips” to access all your flight and travel plans at any time. You can also get info about specific flights in a number of ways, including through a combination of destination, month of trip and airlines — e.g. “show me my flights to Seattle in December with Emirates.”
  • Cortana will now let you know when online check-in opens up, giving you the chance to grab the best available seats. Clicking the link takes you straight to your airline’s check-in page. Cortana will also give you the latest weather at your destination and a five-day forecast, helping you decide whether to pack the sandals or the snow boots.
  • On the day of your flight, Cortana starts monitoring traffic conditions a few hours before your flight and lets you know when to leave for the airport. Once at the airport, Cortana provides a venue map, so you can quickly drop off your bags.
  • If you are flying internationally, Cortana brings up a currency convertor to help you in converting local currency to foreign currency.

To get help with this new trips feature, go to Cortana > Cortana’s Notebook  > Interests, and then tap Add  > Travel > Trip Planner.
As always Cortana is getting better and better day by day. What do you think guys?
