US Airways to offer Gogo service from 2010

23rd July 2009 - 18:12 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


US Airways has signed up with Aircell to provide Gogo Inflight Internet service from early 2010.

Full internet access including web, instant messaging, e-mail and VPN access will be available for purchase to US Airways' passengers with laptops, smartphones and other Wi-Fi enabled devices.

“Gogo Inflight Internet will allow our customers to make the most of their flying time by catching up on work or relaxing and surfing the internet. This is an exciting new option for our passengers that we believe will enhance their travel experience,” said Andrew Nocella, senior vice-president, marketing and planning.

Gogo will initially be installed on the airline's Airbus A321 fleet, flying selected domestic routes, which are detailed on a map on the airline's website. Later in 2010, customers will be able to see if Wi-Fi is available on a specific flight by looking for the Wi-Fi icon while booking their flight on the website.

The pricing for Gogo Inflight Internet on US Airways will be announced closer to the launch date. Customers will be able to choose service from Aircell’s standard pricing structure, which currently ranges from $5.95 to $12.95, depending on the length of flight and type of Wi-Fi enabled device used.

“Gogo is for anyone who wants to make plane time their time,” said Jack Blumenstein, president and chief executive officer of Aircell. “Whether you want to stay connected to the office, your family or friends; whether you want to work, play or learn; Gogo is for you. We look forward to working with US Airways to bring the world to its passengers.”
