Passengers travelling with Virgin Atlantic will soon be able to take advantage of ultra-fast broadband services as they fly.

Sir Richard Branson's airline will become the first European carrier to offer Gogo’s in-flight broadband solution - which offers download speeds of up to 70Mb over a local Wi-Fi network - from mid-2015.

This will allow passengers to get online via their laptops, tablets and smartphones, and take advantage of a full range of online services.

In-flight ultra-fast Wi-Fi is being launched as part of a £300 million fleet upgrade being carried out by Virgin Atlantic.

Reuben Arnold, Brand Director at the air carrier, said it is always looking at ways to enhance the on-board experience for its customers.

"Expanding in-flight connectivity across our fleet is just one of the ways in which we are doing this," he stated.

"We were impressed with Gogo’s connectivity solution and look forward to all of our customers being able to enjoy this service whilst they fly."
