Although 2023 is almost ending, our team is still working full-thrust to deliver convenient new features every week. This time, we are completely revamping our Journey Planner experience, allowing you to work on multiple journeys in parallel and share journeys with friends and family via URL (even to anonymous users!).

What’s New?

New UI

We’ve redesigned our Journey Planner’s experience to be even more intuitive and user-friendly. The top bar now displays more options.

Work on Multiple Journeys at Once

It’s now possible to work on multiple journeys at once! Tap on the first button (Journey List) to see your active/saved journeys and switch between them.

Create New Journeys

Tap on New to start working on a new Journey:

Create a new journey.

Immediately after, you will see a new empty journey under your list of journeys:

Share a Journey

This new feature becomes extremely handy when organizing a trip with a group. It helps evaluate different options while seeing exact information, such as flight numbers, dates, and cities involved.

Once you are ready to work on an itinerary, tap on Share to get a unique link you can send to friends and family.

They will see a summary of your itinerary and a map when opening the link.

Unshare a Journey

If you ever want to stop sharing your itinerary, tap on Unshare.

Copy to Clipboard

The legacy Copy to clipboard option is still there if you want to paste it into a note and have it at hand when calling a service center or just save your trips on the side.

Remember you can also paste it back into AwardFares into a new journey.
