Gogo, a leader of in-flight connectivity and a pioneer of wireless in-flight digital entertainment solutions, announced today a partnership with previous ‘Disruptor of The Day’ recipient HotelTonight to bring last minute hotel deals to passengers who connect with Gogo using their tablet or mobile device.  The service will be available to those passengers flying to more than 30 + destination cities in the U.S. served by HotelTonight.  A complete list of destination cities can be found here.

Access to HotelTonight will be available through tablets and mobile devices only and will be free.  To access HotelTonight while in flight, passengers simply need to open their Wi-Fi enabled tablet or smartphone, launch their browser and click on the HotelTonight promotion on the Home page.

“This unique mobile partnership is one more way Gogo is bringing relevant destination related content to passengers through our multimedia platform,” said Ash ElDifrawi, Gogo’s chief marketing officer. “Our new multi-media platform enables our airline partners to customize online experiences in air to reflect their brand and offers them the flexibility to provide a robust set of experiences such as destination-related content, travel information, news, movies, shopping and more. Much of this content is free to passengers via their own Wi-Fi enabled device.”

“HotelTonight brings consumers simple access to same-day deals at top rated hotels,” said Sam Shank, CEO of HotelTonight. “Working with Gogo, travelers can score a great hotel deal, whether they are on a last-minute trip or just forgot to book a room – even at 35,000 feet.”
