DALLAS, Feb. 9 /PRNewswire/ -- FareCompare LP, a provider of next- generation airfare search technology, announced today the deployment of an airfare search engine on the Google map platform that helps consumers quickly find the cheapest way to reach multiple destinations.

The map shows all these options in an easily readable format.
