Google Now contextual Info shown on Maps


Saw contextual information at work on Google Maps. While hovering above Trivandrum city, I noticed a date linked to the Airport place-marker. 


Curious about the date, I checked the place info page and voila, that was my flight info. I had a ticket with destination as TRV. Google Now placed it on Maps just because I was panning over the destination city. 


It was my first experience and hence quite surprising. Was the date info was already with Maps since the time Google Now got the itinerary or was the info was passed on just when I browsed over Trivandrum city?
