Gogo to offer Gogo Vision on JAL's domestic fleet
Gogo has announced today that it will add Gogo Vision to Japan Airlines' (JAL) entire domestic fleet.
Gogo Vision is Gogo's wireless inflight entertainment service that allows passengers to rent movies and television shows and stream to their own Wi-Fi enabled laptops or tablets.
"Gogo Vision is a natural add-on service to Gogo's connectivity product as it adds very limited incremental costs to the airline once the connectivity service is in place," said Niels Steenstrup, Gogo's senior vice president, global airline sales. "Gogo Vision becomes an extremely low cost way for airlines to offer a robust inflight entertainment solution to its passengers that they can then stream to their own Wi-Fi enabled devices."
The Gogo Vision platform will contain Japanese produced content as well as JAL original content.
"Adding Gogo Vision to our fleet is just another way for us to bring passengers a unique and completely refreshing onboard experience," said Yoshiharu Ueki, JAL's president. "JAL passengers will be able to use the Internet to stay connected and productive and Gogo Vision will help keep them entertained."
Gogo recently announced a partnership with JAL to provide inflight internet on the same fleet. The new service is expected to be available to JAL passengers beginning in the summer of 2014.
