I’m a big fan of airline searches that offer a lot of filters. As someone who’s always on the lookout for good deals and good places to visit I appreciate the ability to customise my searches to a degree where what I’m presented with is actually relevant to my needs.

The ability to search prices to a number of destinations in a single search is one I like a lot (I just wish Google Flights would let me search more than 5 destinations at a time) and the ability to weed out mixed-cabin itineraries is another filter I wish more sites would provide…but I never really considered the latest addition to Norwegian’s search facility.

Norwegian’s search filters are, as you’d expect, more geared to people going on vacation than they are to people traveling on business so that’s why you can choose filters like this one:

And why you can easily search for fares across all of Norwegian’s network by month rather than having to pick specific dates – here’s what the airline is offering out of London Gatwick for the month of October for example:

Surprisingly the Norwegian fare filter is actually quite poor as there’s no differentiation above €80 – you’re either shown fares under €80 or fares which cost more.

But the latest filter is quite cool and, more importantly, possibly quite useful.

It’s probably pretty obvious to most that destinations in Northern Europe aren’t going to be particularly warm for most of the year and that you’re unlikely to ever be cold whatever time of year you visit the Caribbean…but it’s not always that clear for other destinations.

Now Norwegian has you covered.

Travelers can now filter out destinations that they consider to be too hot or too cold for their needs and, as someone who’s regularly having to check the temperature of places I’m thinking of visiting, I quite like this.

Believe it or not the filters can really help narrow a search down

Here’s what you’re offered if you’re looking for an October city break where the temperature will be 20 degrees (Celsius) or higher if you want to fly in and out of London Gatwick on non-stop flights in October:

Yes, just two destinations….but at least that helps to cut down on any decision making!

The filters aren’t perfect – if you search for US destinations where the temperature will be higher than 20 degrees (Celsius) in October you’re not offered LA (LA is almost guaranteed to be warmer than that in October) and if you search for a “sun and sea” trip you’re offered Bangkok as an option (I’m pretty sure there’s no sea anywhere near Bangkok) – but overall they can be very useful.

The one major missing filter appears to the option to filter for premium cabin fares.

Bottom Line

I like the Norwegian search filters – they’re very useful if you’re not set on one specific destination and want to see what your options are given whatever constraints you’d like to place on your trip.

When premium fares are added and when Norwegian eventually gets around to making the fare filter more flexible there won’t be many airlines with a better search facility.
