Frontier Airlines to add the Gogo system to the 32 Embraer ERJ 170s and ERJ 190s

Frontier Airlines (2nd) (Denver), a wholly-owned subsidiary of Republic Airways Holdings, Inc. (Indianapolis), has announced it will add the Gogo® inflight internet service on its Embraer fleet. Frontier plans to have the service installed on its fleet of 32 ERJ 170 and ERJ 190 aircraft by the end of 2010.

Gogo internet access will be available for purchase starting at $4.95, based on length of flight and type of device used to access Gogo. Once connected, customers can use Gogo to check e-mail, log into a corporate VPN, watch their favorite Frontier commercials and more.
