Arranging to fly from A-to-B should take less than a minute.That's the thinking behind mobile app, Sparrow Flights, that hopes to revolutionise the travel experience.Hannah Sinclair has more.

From the spare room in his apartment in Sydney's inner west, Adrian Ciaschetti and his business partner, David Shepherd, can monitor the flight path.

It's a handy piece of real estate that's been transformed into a home office since their app took off in July last year.

Mr Ciaschetti says there's a simple problem his app is working to solve.

"If you've ever booked a flight online, you'll know how frustrating the experience can be. It's not very easy to use, things time out and changing flights can be a nightmare, it's like a half-hour phone call."
