Google Holiday Gift: Free Gogo Inflight Wi-Fi For Travelers


Google seems to be swinging with the up-coming holiday season. The internet search giant went all crazy once again as it announced the free Wi-Fi Program for the users. After last year’s successful free Wi-Fi promotion which it utilized to advertise the Google Nexus One, the company was pleased to announce the program for the second year. Rather offering the free Wi-Fi service to users at the airports, Google partnered with major airlines to offer free in-flight Wi-Fi access. Passengers would be more than delighted to hear as well as utilize the high-speed internet, making the most their time.

Sundar Pichai, Vice President Product Management at Google, wrote:

On the Chrome team, we’re big fans of innovations that make our lives on the web and in the browser better—and it all starts with more ubiquitous access to the Internet So for this holiday season, we’ve teamed up with AirTran, Delta and Virgin America to offer free Gogo Inflight Wi-Fi on every domestic flight from November 20, 2010 through January 2, 2011.We were excited by the response from last year’s free holiday Wi-Fi program, and thought that this would be a perfect holiday gift to help you stay connected to your loved ones as you head home.

Gogo Inflight Wi-Fi

Google partnered with Delta, AirTran, and Virgin America, which would offer ”Gogo Inflight Wi-Fi”, available for domestic flights only. Users would be provided free internet in the US for the holiday season, as the company is always delighted to give things away. The free Wi-Fi service would be available on more than 700 planes while reaching to as many as 15 million travelers.

Well, last time the company utilized the program to promote the Google Nexus One, this year the company would use the program to promote the Chrome Web Browser.
