Alaska Airlines announced today that customers traveling on Wi-Fi-equipped planes will be able to use Gogo® Inflight Internet service at no cost, courtesy of American Honda Motor Co. Inc., through Dec. 9, 2010.

With Gogo, Alaska Airlines passengers with Wi-Fi-enabled devices can browse the Web; access online music, games, podcasts and webcasts; send and receive e-mail; and connect to virtual private networks while flying. The easy-to-use service provides passengers with full Internet access on any Wi-Fi-equipped laptop or personal electronic device at speeds similar to wireless mobile broadband services on the ground.

Since May, Alaska Airlines has outfitted more than 70 percent of its Boeing 737 aircraft with the Gogo service and expects to complete fleet-wide installation in early 2011. 

Aircraft equipped with Inflight Wi-Fi have a Wi-Fi symbol located outside the aircraft’s boarding door and information about the service in seatback pockets. Gogo is available above 10,000 feet, following an announcement approving the use of portable electronic devices.
