Gogo Offering Free Inflight Facebook Access
Gogo Inflight Internet said today it would offer free access to Facebook for the month of February for passengers on seven major airlines.
In partnership with Ford, Gogo is offering free Facebook access on American Airlines, Alaska Airlines, AirTran Airways, Delta Air Lines, United Airlines, US Airways and Virgin America.
"Facebook continues to be the number one website visited by travelers using Gogo at 30,000 feet," said Aircell Chief Revenue Officer, Jim Berrien.
"Our commitment is to offer great inflight experiences to our users, and unique marketing opportunities to advertisers.”
When the plane has reached 10,000 feet and people are allowed to turn on electronic devices, they can visit the Gogo wireless network, open their browser and click on the Ford/Facebook banner.
The service is available to users on all Wi-Fi enabled devices, including laptops, smartphones and PDAs.
