ITASCA, Ill. – Aircell, the world’s leading provider of airborne communications, has introduced the Gogo Monthly Subscription, a new pricing option that can be used across the entire fleet of more than 800 Gogo equipped aircraft. Gogo Monthly Subscription offers the best value for frequent fliers who want to stay connected regardless of their airline choice. This new option automatically renews each month and is available for US $34.95.
“Building on the strong demand for our existing 30-Day product, frequent flyers are telling us that they want a single pass that provides a seamless and convenient way to stay connected across all Gogo equipped airlines,” said Michael Small, Aircell’s President and CEO.
Passengers can purchase the Gogo Monthly Subscription through the inflight portal, just as they do today. Once registered, passengers will have Internet access on all Gogo equipped flights. Though it will be redeemable on all equipped airlines, Gogo Monthly Subscription will initially be available for purchase on AirTran Airways, American Airlines, Delta Air Lines and Virgin America; all airlines that have equipped a high percentage of their fleet with Gogo.
Aircell’s goal is to offer airline passengers a wide range of pricing options. In addition to the new subscription product, Aircell will continue to offer Gogo passes for single flight segments, which start at $4.95.
Gogo is currently available on all AirTran Airways and Virgin America flights and on select Air Canada, American Airlines, Delta Air Lines, US Airways and United Airlines flights. Later in 2010, Alaska Airlines and Continental Airlines will join the family of Gogo equipped carriers.
