0

United Airlines has announced plans to outfit more than 200 two-cabin United Express regional jets with wi-fi and streaming IFE, with the service expected to begin later this year. The airline intends to install Gogo’s ATG-4 air-to-ground wi-fi product on E170, E175 and CRJ700 aircraft, and to complete planned installations by next summer.

Early next year, United expects to expand personal device entertainment to these aircraft, enabling customers to select from a wide range of movies and television shows to view on their wi-fi-enabled iOS and Android devices using United’s mobile app, as well as on laptop computers.

“United is pleased to extend our growing Wi-Fi and personal device entertainment platform to our fleet of larger regional jets,” said Jeff Foland, United’s executive vice president of marketing, technology and strategy. “These new elements will enhance the entire in-flight experience for our customers.”
