The search giant is enabling users to type in a flight number and receive information such as the terminal number, gate and whether the service is on time.

The information will be coupled with details of the weather in destination as well as suggested restaurants.

Alternatively, users who type in a city name will receive information on what is going on in the city.

The mobile service is also designed to open up search so user reviews can be pulled in or the ability to book a table.

Yahoo head of product for mobile Gerrit Mueller said: “The opportunity for mobile is very big but so far in terms of having products that create value it has not been there. All these things are coming together now.”

Yahoo has also developed oneSearch providing a search box on the desktop on a mobile phone or device. The search facility gives users suggestions of what they might be looking for once they enter the first three letters.

The company is also launching oneConnect combining social networks such as Flickr, Facebook and Linked In and communications tools such as text, instant messaging and e-mail all accessible from one area.

The services can be seen via PC at
http://mobile.yahoo.com or on mobile http://m.yahoo.com

The company plans to release the services in Europe in 2009.
