DSC_0259Virgin America announced that it has completed the upgrade of all of its aircraft to Gogo’s ATG-4 in-flight Internet service.

Gogo’s new ATG-4 service is significantly faster than the original ATG system.  ATG-4 supports three times the peak bandwidth to the aircraft, or 9.8 Mbps versus 3.1.

Virgin currently has 53 Airbus A320 family aircraft in its fleet.  The airline performed its final ATG-4 installation this week on an Airbus A319 plane called “Jane,” tail number N526VA.  The San Francisco-based airline said it was the first to have an all ATG-4 fleet.

In conjunction with the milestone, the airline launched a Twitter and Instagram contest asking passengers to share their best “office in the sky” moment.  The prizes will include a round-trip for two on Virgin, an Apple iPad, or one year of Gogo in-flight Internet service.
