“Adding Wi-Fi to our Embraer fleet is another example of Frontier’s commitment to providing our guests with a comfortable and easy travel experience,” commented vice president of Marketing and Customer Experience for Frontier, Dan Krause. “We’re confident that the availability of onboard Wi-Fi will improve the flying experience of those who want to remain socially connected during their travels.”
“Gogo is extremely excited about the opportunity to help the numerous travellers who fly Frontier’s Embraer fleet stay connected and entertained in flight through Gogo,” said Ash ElDifrawi, Gogo’s chief marketing officer. “As the number of Wi-Fi-enabled mobile devices continues to grow, those passengers who have come to expect connectivity will be able to connect on Frontier.”
