ITASCA, Ill., July 15 /PRNewswire/ -- Summer is in full swing and both seasonal and business travelers alike will be heading to the airport armed with their Wi-Fi devices, from laptops to iPhones, looking to stay connected in-flight. Leading airlines are deploying Gogo® Inflight Internet service on more flights every day, making the service available to more people and on a greater variety of flights than ever before. To accommodate this growth and passengers' varied travel needs, Aircell has launched two new pricing options for the service: a Flight Pass for short haul flights and a 24-Hour Pass, aimed to make using Gogo even easier for passengers making one or more Gogo-enabled connections or same day roundtrips.
"Gogo Inflight Internet is for everyone, and our customers are as different as the destinations they choose and reasons they travel," said Tom Weigman, Executive Vice President of Wireless Services. "Our goal is to offer a service and pricing structure that will meet each of their unique needs. As Gogo Inflight Internet service becomes ubiquitous, flying time really is becoming 'my time.'"
For the serious road warrior (or air warrior, as the case may be), Aircell also offers the Gogo 30-Day Pass, which allows unlimited use of Gogo Inflight Internet service over a 30-day period on a single airline for $49.95. This pass is currently available on Delta Air Lines, Virgin America and AirTran Airways flights. Standard mid-range (approximately 1.5 to 3 hours) and long haul Gogo Flight Pass pricing is still set at $9.95 and $12.95, respectively.
Aircell will continually assess customer feedback and work to provide the most innovative and convenient offerings to Gogo customers. Accordingly, Gogo pricing and accessibility options will continue to expand throughout 2009, and Aircell will explore additional Gogo subscription options, to offer passengers the ultimate access to the Internet, in-flight.
