ITASCA, Ill., July 28, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Gogo (NASDAQ: GOGO), a leading global aero communications service provider, announced today that it has launched a first of its kind wireless in-flight entertainment experience with Delta Air Lines called "Delta Studio."
The new wireless in-flight entertainment product will offer passengers a variety of television shows and movies that will be streamed wirelessly to passengers' own Wi-Fi enabled devices. Passengers sitting in premium seats will be able to access all of the content free of charge, while economy customers will have access to most titles for free.
"This type of integrated experience is a game changer for Delta and sets their entertainment offering apart from competitors," said Ash ElDifrawi, Gogo's chief commercial officer. "In addition, Delta Studio marks an important shift in how Gogo builds and delivers its products. Our goal is to provide the underlying technologies that enable our airline partners to create customized experiences for their customers."
To access the content, a passenger can simply launch the browser on their laptop, Android or Apple tablet, or iPhone device and they will automatically be directed to Delta Studio. Gogo's seat selection technology integrates with Delta's flight records through an API that will serve up the appropriate content when a passenger enters their name and seat number.
"This technology ushers in a new era of customer relationship management in the air that will allow Gogo to help airlines target content, products and services at the seat level while in flight," added ElDifrawi.
