Use Facebook Free on Flights in February
Ford Motor Company is behind the complimentary services, making Facebook available on Gogo Inflight Internet-equipped planes run by AirTran Airways, Alaska Airlines, American Airlines, Delta Air Lines, United Airlines, US Airways and Virgin America.
Gogo says over 1,100 planes are hooked up to the company's Wi-Fi service.
"Facebook continues to be the number one website visited by travelers using Gogo at 30,000 feet," says Jim Berrien, Aircell chief revenue officer, in a statement.
To take advantage of the promotion, just wait until the cabin crew clears use personal electronic devices in flight, select the Gogo wireless network on your computer, open a web browser and click the Ford/Facebook banner.
"The Ford team is excited to be able to bring Facebook to Gogo Inflight Network users during the month of February," says Alex Hultgren, Ford's digital media manager.
If users want to browse other website besides Facebook while flying, prices to use the Internet for onboard Wi-Fi range from $5.95 to $12.95 depending on the length of the flight.
