Tuesday 17 November 2015 | 12:34 CET | News
Gogo's Text & Talk service was launched by private aviation company Wheels Up on selected Wheels Up aircraft. Fleet-wide installation will be completed by the end of 2015. Wheels Up members will have complimentary access to in-flight texting and calling capabilities in addition to existing Wi-Fi and entertainment options. The service works via a smartphone app and Wi-Fi connection. It is designed to be easy to use as it mimics the operation and native features of the passenger's device, including Caller ID, contact lists and call histories. It uses the passenger's own mobile number.
