Aircell adds destination guides to Gogo portal
AIRCELL has added destination guides from leading US travel information provider Frommer’s to its Gogo terrestrially based passenger broadband service. Gogo is being trialled by American Airlines in 15 domestic Boeing 767s and has also been selected by Air Canada, Delta and Virgin America.
Passengers on the American Airlines 767s will be able to access Frommer’s content hosted on the aircraft server via their laptops and the cabin WiFi network. Available free of charge on the Gogo inflight portal, the material includes advice on the best hotels in major cities; listings of concerts, festivals, exhibitions, sports events and other events; weather forecasts; and airport guides for the four “hub” cities currently being served by Gogo-equipped aircraft - Los Angeles, San Francisco, New York and Miami.
“As one of the most respected and insight-rich guides in the world, Frommer’s is the travel companion of choice for many,” says Tom Weigman, Aircell executive VP for wireless services. “Now, via its inclusion in Gogo service, it’s being delivered to passengers on the move, when such information can be even more valuable.”
