Wi-Fi software and services specialist, Boingo, and in-flight connectivity provider, Gogo, have partnered to now offer Boingo customers Wi-Fi access during flights.Passengers can log in to Gogo using their existing Boingo account. This premium service access (not included in monthly plans) includes more than 1,100 aircraft from nine carriers, providing robust internet access above 10,000 feet.Senior vice president of business and corporate development for Boingo Wireless, Luis Serrano declared, “The Boingo Roaming Network now extends six miles above the Earth thanks to the expansive fleet of Gogo equipped airplanes. Gogo’s in-flight network is a key addition to our roaming portfolio, especially since inflight access is one of the most requested service enhancements we receive through our customer feedback channels.”“Making Gogo more easily available to more customers who already have a Wi-Fi billing relationship ultimately helps us ensure that everyone stays connected in air, online,” commented Ash ElDifrawi, Gogo’s chief marketing officer. “Boingo’s extensive customer base brings a legion of active Wi-Fi users into the planes, already armed with a username and password, who can log on right away.”The service is immediately available for Boingo customers via the Gogo home page or by using the latest Boingo Wi-Finder app. By simply using the “Roaming” button at the bottom of the redirect page, users will be able to choose Boingo as their provider and log in with their existing Boingo username and password.
