Airlines are looking at new ways to make more money and attract more customers and a way to do so is by offering in-flight services. From today, seven major airlines are giving access to Facebook on their Wi-Fi network all month. This forms to be a part of the promotion with Gogo inflight internet that allows you to connect to the net from 30,000 feet up in the air.
The airlines that will offer the free Facebook service are Virgin America, United Airlines, American Airlines, Delta, AirTran, US Airways and Alaska Airlines. If users want to use the service to sites other than Facebook, they will have to pay extra. Prices start from $4.95 for a short flight to $12.95 for a long one.
Gogo said that Facebook is the most-visited site via its services in the air. Gogo serves about 1,100 commercial aircraft and almost 5,000 private planes.
I personally love the Gogo service, when I tried it, it was amazing to see internet work from up so high and the feeling of being connected. What else now you can make a Skype or a VOIP call from 30,000 feet in the air without having to pay for the expensive international calling that a airline would charge.
Tip: Type is this code – trygogo to get free internet access in the air.
