Aircell has introduced an online purchase option for its Gogo Unlimited monthly WiFi subscription with an introductory offer pricing the first month at $19.95 instead of the normal $34.95 if bought on the ground at www.gogoinflight.com.
"Frequent flyers love Gogo Unlimited as a single pass providing a seamless way to stay connected across all Gogo equipped airlines. Now this product can be purchased right from home or via a mobile device before you even get to the airport," comments Aircell president and CEO Michael Small.
Introduced in April 2010, the subscription provides unlimited monthly internet access using any Wi-Fi enabled device on all Gogo-equipped flights. The monthly subscription starts immediately, renews automatically and can be cancelled at any time.
Aircell says it will continue to offer Gogo passes for single flight segments, which start at $4.95, and that its goal is to offer a wide range of pricing options. Its web site currently lists a range of single flight, 24-hour and 30-day passes.
Nearly 1,000 aircraft are Gogo-equipped, Aircell adds. The service is currently available on all AirTran Airways and Virgin America flights and on many Air Canada, Alaska Airlines, American Airlines, Delta Air Lines, US Airways and United Airlines flights.
