GOGO Vacations Expanding at an Accelerating Rate
Gogo will have approximately 600 total 2Ku aircraft online across 10 airlines by the end of this year. The company has shortened installation times to less than two days, which is less than half the time that it typically takes to install a broadband satellite connectivity solution.
These installations mean GOGO is covering almost all airlines across the globe, including American Airlines, Air Canada, Japan Airlines, and British Airways. Because of these efforts, if you’re a regular flyer, you’ll now have the ability to enjoy fast Wi-Fi.
GOGO Travel Net Service is Perfect for Business Flyers
A fast Wi-Fi service is a major perk for any airline customer. After all, flights can be pretty dull, especially during long-distance travel.
Let’s say you’re out on a business trip, and you’re aiming to close a deal with a huge investor. You need to be in constant connection with your team to go over your pitch. If your plane has GOGO connectivity, you no longer need to worry. GOGO’s Wi-Fi service is capable of providing 15 Mbps to each passenger’s device. The company says their service offers enhanced connectivity and works perfectly even for video streaming.
GOGO was designed for people traveling in business, which is why it’s the perfect web companion for people who can’t afford to take take time off — even when traveling.
GOGO Vacations Start During Your Flight
Even if you’re traveling for pleasure, long vacation flights can still be quite the drag. With the GOGO vacations experience, however, this doesn’t need to be the case. Your flight time will feel much shorter if you have something to watch or listen to during the trip. What better entertainment to kill time with than Netflix or YouTube?
That’s right. It’s now possible to stream series and movies during your flight without buffering. GOGO says that you can even stream Spotify, Youtube, and Netflix at the same time without loading hiccups. This is possible because GOGO has multiple modems installed in the plane.
Now, your flights will be more entertaining and convenient thanks to the GOGO Vacations experience. It essentially starts your get-away vacation as soon as sit in your seat. Because of this service, GOGO is the dominant player in the flight industry. GOGO’s COO said that they are expecting to double their installations in this year’s fourth quarter.
Currently, the company estimates 600 aircrafts across 10 airlines will be online by the end of 2017. GOGO hit its 200th installation milestone this past June. One of the reasons for this growth is that GOGO’s installation time has been reduced to two days. This is less than half the time it usually takes to fit an aircraft with an internet connectivity satellite, allowing them to dominate the airline broadband market.
Thanks to the in-flight GOGO trip experience, you can stay connected during your flight. Furthermore, GOGO keeps you updated with what’s happening on the ground. Lastly, and most importantly, you’ll be able to kill the bane of long-haul flights: boredom.
