Gogo is to offer in-flight Wi-Fi passes to travel agents through its new Sabre Red App. The Gogo Red App will be available to US-based travel agents using the Sabre system through the Sabre Red App Centre.
Through this alliance, travel agents who book customer travel using the Sabre Red App will be able to offer their clients the ability to pre-purchase a Wi-Fi pass at a discount whenever they are booking a Gogo-enabled flight.
The pass provides up to 24 hours of continuous wireless internet access on domestic Gogo-equipped flights on participating airlines between destinations within the US, Canada, and Mexico.
Alison Colquhoun, Vice President of Product Marketing, Sabre Travel Network, said: “Gogo is a leading provider of in-flight internet and entertainment and this Red App will enable travel agents to offer customers an amenity that has become a must have for travellers.”
Ash ElDifrawi, Gogo’s Chief Commercial Officer, added: “We know that the more integrated we can get within the decision-making process for travel arrangements, the more likely passengers are to choose to use our services in flight.
“What better way to do that than to partner with the leader in global travel technology and arm the tens of thousands of travel agents that use the Sabre Red App to book client travel so they can easily add in-flight Wi-Fi to their trip.”
