Delta Connects Crew With Mobile Devices

Delta has rolled out connectivity on Nokia Lumia 820 mobile devices for its 19,000 in-flight professionals. The phone will be connected through Gogo and will allow Delta's flight crew to process credit card payments in real time. "Delta's use of Gogo's network in this capacity is truly historical," said Gogo's president and CEO, Michael Small. "We see this as the first step in supporting the entire aircraft and airline operations through in-air connectivity related services. The possibilities are significant in terms of the applications that can be built to aid airline efficiency and passenger services in the future," added Small. "Whether that's providing a glimpse of weather ahead, offering passengers connecting gate information, or processing payments for other goods and services."
