ITASCA, IL. – Sept. 20, 2013 – Gogo (NASDAQ: GOGO), the world leader of in-flight connectivity and a pioneer in wireless in-flight digital entertainment solutions, is partnering with Allstate to offer passengers 30 minutes of free in-flight Internet access on their smartphones during weekend flights.
“We are extremely excited to work with Allstate to offer benefits to all Gogo in-flight Internet users who fly during the weekend,” said Ash ElDifrawi, Gogo’s chief commercial officer. “This partnership with Allstate is a great example of the ways in which Gogo is working with leading brands to reach a highly connected audience while they are in the air.”
“The partnership with Gogo provides another opportunity for Allstate to be a part of the good in people’s lives,” said Bob Wasserman, senior vice president, e-Business Marketing, Allstate Insurance Company. “Connecting with friends and family while in the air allows Allstate to bring the Good Life to customers and non-customers alike.”
Starting September 21, the free 30 minute sessions will be available to passengers on all Gogo equipped flights with the exception of Gogo equipped Air Canada aircraft.
Five years ago, Gogo revolutionized the in-flight experience by offering an Air-To-Ground, cellular based network that enabled passengers to connect to the Internet above 30,000 feet and traveling at speeds in excess of 500 miles-per-hour. Today, more than a million passengers a month use the service to stay connected in-flight. Gogo’s connectivity service can now be found on nearly 2,000 commercial aircraft over nine major airline partners. More than 7,000 commercial flights each day are connected using Gogo’s service.
