Aircell launches smartphone-geared in-flight calling, texting technology
Aug 30, 2013 (AIRLINE INDUSTRY INFORMATION via COMTEX) --
Colorado USA-based in-flight connectivity equipment and services firm Aircell (NASDAQ: GOGO) said that its Gogo Biz service will expand to include voice capabilities starting October 1st.
Gogo Biz was originally launched in 2009 as an Internet-only service in the business aviation market. Because Gogo Biz operates on Aircell's air-to-ground technology, its voice calls are among the clearest in aviation on par with mobile phone calls on the ground.
As a "two-in-one" service, Gogo Biz offers Internet and voice capabilities from a single system, which can eliminate the need for separate systems, dramatically reducing equipment requirements and installation costs.
Monthly voice plans for Gogo Biz start at USD 134.95/month, which includes 60 voice minutes.
In flight, passengers and flight crews can use the new Gogo Biz voice capabilities on their own smartphones and/or with Aircell's new cabin handsets, the firm said.
Shipments of the Gogo OnePhone will begin October 15th.
