Virgin America has announced the fleet-wide rollout of Gogo’s faster ATG-4 WiFi service.

The airline became the first airline to offer Gogo inflight WiFi service on every flight in 2009.

Gogo’s enhanced WiFi product has now been rolled out to all 53 of Virgin America’s Airbus A320 family aircraft.

ATG-4 offers a faster average passenger experience with peak speeds of 9.8 Mbps to each aircraft – more than triple the peak speed of the 3.1 Mbps available with the first generation of inflight WiFi.

Mark Bianchi, Senior Vice President of Technical Operations at Virgin America, said: “Even though Virgin America was the first airline to offer fleet-wide WiFi in 2009 – and still today remains the only domestic airline to offer WiFi access on every aircraft in its fleet – our goal is to continue to innovate and stay ahead of the competition.

“Our team looks forward to reaching the milestone this week of becoming the first airline to install Gogo’s enhanced ATG-4 service across our entire fleet of 53 Airbus A320 Family aircraft.

“This upgrade is the latest in a series of investments aimed at keeping our tech-forward travellers more connected, productive and entertained at 35,000 feet.”

Gogo’s ATG-4 technology includes three innovations: the addition of directional antennas and dual modems on each aircraft and the deployment of EV-DO Rev B technology on Gogo’s airborne and ground networks.

Utilising directional antennas and dual modem technology, Virgin America says ATG-4 increases overall peak connection speeds and ensures a more reliable connection to each and every passenger on board who chooses to connect.
