If you’re flying on Virgin America flights this summer (July 1- Sept. 30) make sure to ask for a Chromebook before lift-off.
Google has partnered with the airline to allow guests on select Virgin American routes to check out a Chromebook at their departure gate and take it on board.
Is WiFi available and is it free?
Yes. Boot up in 8-seconds and start surfing the web for free at 35,000 feet courtesy of the Gogo network.
If you happen to be traveling from the San Francisco International Airport’s (SFO) Terminal 2, Boston Logan International Airport (BOS), Chicago O’Hare International Airport (ORD) or Dallas-Fort Worth International Airport (DFW) check out the Google “Chrome Zone” to get in on the fun.
If you have any questions there will be Google Chrome Staff on hand at the participating Virgin America gates to help out.
Caesar Sengupta, Director of Chrome OS at Google says: “Designed for people who live on the web and are on the go, the speed, simplicity and security of Chromebooks are an ideal choice for today’s travelers. We’re pleased to partner once again with Virgin America to keep travelers connected and productive no matter where they are – even at 35,000 feet.”
