Delta Adds Gogo Vision Video-On-Demand and Wi-Fi Portal
Delta Air Lines launched new in-flight entertainment options in conjunction with its wireless partner Gogo. The Delta Connect Wi-Fi portal offers passengers free access to real-time travel information, destination content, news and information, and on-line shopping. Gift.com and OpenTable.com are included in the free content.
In addition, Delta announced the deployment of Gogo’s new video-on-demand service, Gogo Vision, on its fleet of 16 Boeing 757-300 aircraft. Gogo Vision allows passengers to continue viewing a movie after they have landed, in case they didn’t have time to finish it while on the flight. Delta is Gogo’s second partner for the service; it was launched in August on American Airlines.
Delta Connect and Gogo Vision are available to passengers regardless as to whether they purchase Gogo’s Wi-Fi service. There is a fee ranging from $.99 (television programs) to $3.99 (movies) for the entertainment service.
