Google’s Flight Search app has gone global with new support to check out and compare flights from the U.S. to destinations including Amsterdam, Buenos Aires, and Venice.

Google debuted its flight search tool in September and starting placing flight search results at the top of regular searches in December. The flight results also pop up when you type a query like “flights from New York to San Francisco.” And now you can search for cities around the world too, as long as you start in the U.S.

“Since we launched Flight Search, we’ve heard from many globetrotters eager to use the feature to search for destinations outside the U.S.,” Google said in a company blog post. “Starting today, you can find flights, including international destinations, from the U.S. quickly and conveniently.”

Flight and travel search competitors such as Expedia, Priceline, and Kayak have expressed frustration with Google Flight Search. Since travel sites rely on Google for some of their traffic, any time Google places its results at the top, it’s likely taking traffic and sales away from those sites.

Take a look at Flight Search below with its new support for flights from the U.S. to Amsterdam.
