Gogo has partnered with hotel booking service provider, HotelTonight, to offer last minute deals to passengers connecting with Gogo using their tablet or mobile device in-flight.
The service will be available to passengers flying to more than 30+ destination cities in the U.S. served by HotelTonight. Access to offers will be available through tablets and mobile devices only and will be free. Passengers can access the deals by opening their Wi-Fi enabled tablet or smartphone, launch their browser and click on the HotelTonight promotion on the Home page.
“This unique mobile partnership is one more way Gogo is bringing relevant destination related content to passengers through our multimedia platform,” commented Ash ElDifrawi, Gogo’s chief marketing officer. “Our new multi-media platform enables our airline partners to customize online experiences in air to reflect their brand and offers them the flexibility to provide a robust set of experiences such as destination-related content, travel information, news, movies, shopping and more. Much of this content is free to passengers via their own Wi-Fi enabled device.”
“HotelTonight brings consumers simple access to same-day deals at top rated hotels,” declared CEO of HotelTonight, Sam Shank. “Working with Gogo, travellers can score a great hotel deal, whether they are on a last-minute trip or just forgot to book a room – even at 35,000 feet.”
