Virgin America has a pleasant surprise for its business travelers. The San Francisco based airline announced the launch of its in-flight social network that is definitely set to boost the morale of travelers booking tickets with it. The airline teamed up with app maker HereOnBit to develop this unique concept. Internet and technology is fast paving way into the airlines even when it is soaring miles above the ground.

The airline intends to offer easy connections on its business class and hence has gone ahead to create this in-flight social network. The aim of this app is to persuade travelers flying in this class to communicate with each other without having to bother about getting up from their respective seats. There is no better way to offer smooth connections than this. The ever-changing technology is certainly proving beneficial for the airline industry and most carriers are utilizing it to the best of their capacities.

The airline, which flies to more than 50 destinations worldwide, is fast catching up with its other counterparts. Virgin America will now use this location-aware app and help travelers connect through other accounts such as Facebook, LinkedIn, and Twitter. The new app helps them view personal details of fellow passengers and access their photographs, names, workplace, and other relevant information.

This app is best suited for travelers who are on their way for a conference. It will help them discuss work, plan the next strategy, and interact with each other without distracting or disturbing others. The app will be fully functional on all flights by the end of this month.
