Airline passengers around the country are praising the new product offering made by InFlight Labs, LLC. The company has announced the availability of an innovative new online service called InFlight Messenger that makes use of an aircraft's Wi-Fi Internet connection to provide passengers with real-time two-way communications while in-flight.
InFlightMessenger.com™ integrates all the best features found with text messaging tools and instant messengers to create a unique experience for subscribers -- advanced, real-time communication while in the air.
Using a laptop or iPad (support for the iPad will be coming soon), subscribers can access InFlight Messenger's simple web interface. Passengers can send and receive unlimited text messages through the web interface, which takes between 4 to 7 seconds, even at 30,000 feet in altitude. Messages can be sent to any cell phone in the United States. According to Tiffany Van Alst, Head of Strategic Alliances for InFlight Labs, LLC, "This powerful tool offers the ability to send messages to groups of up to 25 persons at one time. It also provides the means to maintain text conversations in the air -- it's a powerful tool for business productivity, as well as for personal communication."
InFlight Messenger offers several innovative features. Two of these are the Message History function and the Text Message Calendar. The Text Message Calendar feature allows a user to input appointments, events and schedules for business colleagues or family members. A text message reminder will then be sent to the individual any hour, day, month or year. Replies to the reminder are forwarded directly to the subscriber's cell phone, whether or not the user is currently logged in at the InFlightMessenger.com website. Ensuring the highest possible connectivity is that simple.
Tiffany Van Alst states; "InFlight Messenger will be an added incentive for passengers to sign-up for InFlight Wi-Fi services from companies GoGo InFlight and Row 44."
InFlight Messenger will be priced at $1 for a 30-Day Pass and $1.99 for a 90-Day Pass of unlimited use. Currently, customers can sign up free of charge for this new service by visiting www.InFlightMessenger.com.
