Our favorite inflight WiFi provider just made life a little cheaper (and easier) for travelers lucky enough to be flying a Gogo Inflight enabled plane.
Flights shorter than an hour and a half now let you get your online fix for just $5.95, and passengers who are making multiple trips in a 24 hour period can pay a single $12.95 fee for a full day of access.
These new options come in addition to the existing $9.95 (up to 3 hours) and $12.95 (3 hours or more) plans. Gogo Inflight also offers an all you can eat 30 day option for $49.95.
Some minor fine print is involved with the plans – the 24 hour access plan is only valid on AirTran and Delta flights. The 30 day plan will work on AirTran, Delta and Virgin America.
A full overview of the pricing options can be found here.
With 420 planes now in service using the Gogo Inflight service, Aircell is now the undisputed world leader in inflight Internet access. What started with just a handful of planes on a couple of routes, has now evolved into multiple airlines with fleet wide Internet access – all in under 12 months time, an amazing accomplishment.
