Gogo Enables In-Flight Calling

Get ready to annoy the hell out of your fellow airline passengers, Android and iPhone users. In-flight Wi-Fi provider Gogo has expanded services to include a free application that will allow calls and text messages to be sent from the air. Calls will be routed through Gogo’s Wi-Fi service and then re-routed to cell phone service carriers. “Gogo Text & Talk is just one more way Gogo is keeping airline passengers connected to their lives on the ground,” said Ash ElDifrawi, Gogo's chief marketing officer. “While we see this as more of a text messaging product for commercial airlines in the United States, the phone functionality is something that some international air carriers and our business aviation customers are asking for.”
