November 9, 2010 - AirTran Airways, and Google Chrome, the innovative web browser from Google unveiled a unique promotion to bring free inflight Wi-Fi to all AirTran Airways passengers this holiday season. AirTran Airways is the only major airline to have Wi-Fi on every flight.  

From November 20, 2010, through January 2, 2011, AirTran Airways passengers will have free access to Gogo Inflight Internet. The service allows passengers with Wi-Fi enabled devices like laptops and smartphones to surf the Web while inflight.  

"We are delighted to join forces with Google Chrome to give our loyal customers free inflight Wi-Fi," said Tad Hutcheson, vice president of marketing and sales for AirTran Airways.


"We pride ourselves on offering the most consistent, high-quality flying experience to our passengers, and we are happy to add to that experience free Wi-Fi on every AirTran Airways flight this holiday season." First launched just over two years ago, Google's web browser, Chrome has become known worldwide for its speed, simplicity and security. With a sleek user interface, cutting-edge speed improvements and an innovative security architecture, Chrome lets users browse the modern web faster and safer than ever before.  

AirTran Airways passengers will find that this browser was designed with a concentration on speed and simplicity, making it quick to start up, load web pages and run complex web applications. Additionally, built-in detection of malware and phishing sites help provide greater protection to users while they surf the web.  

"We are constantly working to help provide a better web experience to users around the world," said Sundar Pichai, Vice President of Product Management at Google. "Whether it be building a better browser with Chrome or bringing free Wi-Fi to air travelers this holiday season, we are constantly innovating to ensure users' access to the web is fast, simple and seamless".
