ITASCA, Ill., June 28 /PRNewswire/ -- Just in time for the busy summer travel season, Aircell, the world's leading provider of inflight connectivity, has introduced a new way to purchase before flying, making it easier than ever to stay connected at 30,000 feet. Providing the best value for travelers who want to stay connected when they fly on any of the nearly 1,000 Gogo-equipped aircraft, Gogo Unlimited monthly subscription can be purchased on the ground at www.gogoinflight.com. To kick off this convenient new option, if you start your Gogo Unlimited monthly subscription at www.gogoinflight.com, Aircell is offering the first month for only $19.95, more than a 40% discount from the normal $34.95 price.
"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," explained Michael Small, Aircell's President and CEO.
Gogo Unlimited monthly subscription was introduced in April 2010, providing travelers with monthly unlimited Internet using any Wi-Fi enabled device on all Gogo-equipped flights. The monthly subscription starts immediately and renews automatically, and can be cancelled at any time. Aircell's goal is to offer airline passengers a wide range of pricing options. In addition to Gogo Unlimited, Aircell will continue to offer Gogo passes for single flight segments, which start at $4.95.
Gogo is currently available on all AirTran Airways and Virgin America flights and on select Air Canada, Alaska Airlines, American Airlines, Delta Air Lines, US Airways and United Airlines flights.
