Gogo to give free access to Weather.com sites
Gogo and The Weather Channel will now offer passengers free access to Weather.com and Weather Underground on any Gogo-equipped aircraft.
Passengers can receive up to date weather information on their smartphone, tablet or laptop for their destination city or any city they choose. They can launch their browser and find the Weather.com website without paying for an Internet session. Access to weather.com and wunderground.com via laptop is available now, and the ability to use smartphone apps will come online in the first quarter of 2014.
"We know that checking weather information is one of the top things people do when they access the Internet in flight, especially during this time of the year when weather can have a big impact on travel plans. We are excited to be able to offer them that information for free through our relationship with The Weather Channel," said Ash ElDifrawi, Gogo's chief commercial officer.
“This partnership is a great example of two companies coming together to provide a convenient and valuable service for users," said Mike Finnerty, Senior Vice President and General Manager at The Weather Channel.
