Gogo Vision to Expand Across Delta Connection Fleet
Gogo announced that it will expand its Gogo Vision wireless in-flight entertainment service to Delta’s entire two-class and Delta Connection fleet of Gogo equipped aircraft. Installation on the airline’s domestic fleet is expected to begin in 2012 and be completed by 2013, with new international Wi-Fi service that includes Gogo Vision expected to be completed by the end of 2015. By the end of the upgrade, more than 950 Delta aircraft will be equipped with Gogo connectivity and Gogo Vision.
Videos for Gogo Vision will be stored on a server on the aircraft, and streamed to customers’ Wi-Fi devices. Introductory prices will range from $0.99 per television show, to $3.99 for full-length movies from leading Hollywood studios. Titles can be sorted by various categories, including genre, length, movie, or show, and customers can preview the programs before purchasing them.
Along with the installation of Gogo Vision, Delta will also be upgrading its fleet to ATG-4, Gogo’s next generation connectivity solution. The technology is expected to improve Delta’s existing air-to-ground network.
