Frontier Airlines passengers travelling on the carrier’s Embraer 190 fleet can now surf the web using onboard WiFi provided by Gogo.
“Adding WiFi to our Embraer fleet is another example of Frontier’s commitment to providing our guests with a comfortable and easy travel experience,” explained Dan Krause, vice-president of marketing and customer experience for Frontier. “We’re confident that the availability of onboard WiFi will improve the flying experience of those who want to remain socially connected during their travels.”
Frontier’s onboard Gogo WiFi service has pricing for laptop service at $4.95 on flights up to 650 miles long, $9.95 for flights from 651 to 1,150 miles long, and $12.95 for flights 1,151 miles and longer.

“Gogo is extremely excited about the opportunity to help the numerous travellers who fly Frontier’s Embraer fleet stay connected and entertained in flight,” said Ash ElDifrawi, Gogo’s chief marketing officer. “As the number of WiFi-enabled mobile devices continues to grow, those passengers who have come to expect connectivity will be able to connect on Frontier.”
