Six months after announcing that The Platinum Card from American Express members will receive complimentary, unlimited WiFi access from Boingo Wireless, American Express OPEN has announced that in 2015 (on a not yet specified date), The Business Platinum Card from American Express OPEN cardholders will receive 10 complimentary Gogo Inflight WiFi passes annually. These passes can be used to access internet on any Gogo-equipped flight segment, regardless of the length of the flight and whether it’s domestic or international.

Amex Business Platinum Cardholders will soon receive 10 complimentary Gogo Inflight passes a year.
Amex Business Platinum Cardholders will soon receive 10 complimentary Gogo Inflight passes each year.

Coupled with the ability to access Boingo hotspots while in airports, cafés, etc., this new benefit should be helpful to business travelers, even though it only covers 10 trips each year. Gogo In-flight generally costs $16 for an all-day pass, so the 10 passes are worth $160; Gogo otherwise charges $59.95 per month of unlimited use, and offers occasional discounts like $5 for one hour of use.

The enrollment website won’t be announced until the benefit is available, so I’ll let you know when an enrollment link has been released. Once you sign up for this new program, you’ll receive the benefit automatically every year as long as you keep the eligible card.
