Frontier Airlines is adding Aircell’s Gogo inflight internet service to its Embraer fleet, aiming to to have the service installed on its 32 E-170s and E-190s by the end of 2010.
“Our customers have told us how important inflight entertainment and connectivity is in their travel experience,” remarked executive vice-president and COO Wayne Heller. “We look forward to providing our customers with internet service at 35,000 feet and are thrilled to have Aircell as a partner in this effort.”
Gogo internet access will be available for purchase starting at $4.95, based on length of flight and type of device used to access Gogo. Once connected, customers can use Gogo to check e-mail, log into a corporate VPN, and more.
“We pride ourselves in providing our guests with a comfortable and enjoyable inflight experience,” said vice-president of marketing and branding Ian Arthur. “Each of these amenities, combined with our unmatched customer service, truly provides a differentiated and better experience. We always have an ear to our customers’ needs and will continue to develop an airline that meets and exceeds those expectations.”
Frontier currently offers 24 channels of DIRECTV service and first-run pay-per-view movies onboard its fleet of 52 Airbus aircraft. While the Gogo inflight internet service will be installed on the Embraer fleet in 2010, the carrier will continue to research inflight connectivity options to further enhance the Frontier travel experience.
