Farecast casts off

Posted by Tricia Duryee at 2:29 PM

Seattle-based Farecast announced today that it is launching the public beta of its airfare prediction Web site.

The company said that traveling from Seattle and Boston can now get free airfare predictions to 120 domestic markets.

The age-old question the site helps people answer is: Should I buy now or later?

"Deciding when to buy airfare has been a guessing game for consumers until now," said Hugh Crean, Farecast's president and chief executive. "With Farecast's airfare predictions and recommendations, online travel shoppers are empowered with better information to make more confident and smarter airfare purchase decisions."

Kim Peterson wrote about the company in May when it announced its private trial.
