US Airways will offer in-flight Wi-Fi

US Airways is the latest major carrier to announce a partnership with Aircell that will put the latter’s Gogo in-flight Internet service onto US Airways’ planes. Installation of the Aircell technology will begin early in 2010, the company said, and will start with US Airways’ domestic A321s. The airline said it will put up a map on its website (www.usairways.com) showing which routes will be the first to offer in-flight Wi-Fi, and as the installations proceed over the course of next year, the flight displays on the web site’s booking screens will show a Wi-Fi icon next to flights that are equipped with the Gogo service. US Airways said the fees for the service will reflect “Aircell’s standard pricing structure,” which ranges from $5.95 to $12.95 per flight, depending on length of the flight and the type of device a passenger uses to access it.
