Infographic: Staying Connected in Air

When it comes to staying connected at 36,000 feet, tablets and smartphones now make up a whopping 67 percent of the devices being used to connect to Gogo. Tablets are the most preferred device at 35 percent, followed closely by laptops (33 percent) and smartphones (32 percent).

Apple devices are still reigning above the clouds, following the tablet trend with the iPad being the device of choice. Among all mobile devices being used to connect through Gogo, 84 percent carry Apple’s iOS operating system while 16 percent carry the Android operating system. If you look only at the smartphones our customers are using, the iPhone makes up 73 percent and all Android devices make up 26 percent, with Blackberry and Windows based devices each making up less than 1 percent of devices being used in air.

So, what are our passengers doing once they connect at 30,000 feet? It’s no surprise that general Web surfing ranked as the number one in air, online activity users want to do. Besides Web surfing, passengers spend their time in flight accessing personal email, engaging in social media, checking sports scores and shopping. Business travelers ranked accessing their work email and finalizing reports as the most frequent activity above the clouds. Passengers also utilize Gogo to explore their final destination’s weather, entertainment options and directions upon their arrival.

  5. Great stats. How about the split between desktop OS platforms – my sense is that you see way more Mac laptops on flights and in airports than the single digit market share figures suggest?

  8. Gogo is a paid service, right? I’m assuming these numbers are for people who pay and use the paid connection. I’d be curious to hear what the platform percentages are for people who connect, see that it’s a paid service, and then disconnect before paying.

    • If the #2 browser is Internet explorer, which isn’t supported on Android or Mac, then what mix of devices in use are Windows based since both Safari, Chrome and Firefox also run on Windows?

    • Gogo’s service is domestic US only and not available on all airlines/flights; the data is from the Gogo service, so that’s what you’re looking at.

  31. Hello,
    My name is Davide and wanted to thank you for the interesting infographic. Very well done. Moreover, Gogo appeared on our website just today in an article. I hope you do not mind I used the stats from the above infographic. After all, it’s free publicity for you I suppose.

    Thanks again

    Cheers

  36. Has anyone considered that maybe Android users in general are just too non-tech savvy to figure out how to use this service? I know there’s an image of Android users as the ultimate techie geeks out there but everyone I know who uses Android has no clue about how to use half of the features on their device. Not trying to be insulting about it, but that’s just what I’ve observed.

  87. Maybe you should take a look at your own marketing. Your webpage makes no note of an android app even existing, only that it can be downloaded on itunes. Then take a look at your app in the Google Play store. More than 35 of 81 reviewers gave it 1 star. Maybe more android users would use your service if you made a better app. Then maybe the usage stats would be a little better.

  92. I Don’t think your user base covers a broad enough demographic, many will be travelling business people, many of whom will have their Apple device because of what they represent, their image, their attraction, if they had anything else their company would look, for want of a better word… cheap.
