Gogo has revealed that its business aviation group, Aircell, has now equipped over 2,000 business aircraft with its Gogo Biz in-flight connectivity system.
The Gogo Biz service was introduced to the market in June 2009. Jet Aviation, a member of Aircell's global dealer network, performed the first system installation with a corporate aircraft operator based in the Midwest USA.
"The business aviation market's passion for the service continues to exceed our expectations," said John Wade, Aircell's Executive Vice President and General Manager. "This brings total adoption to more than 4,000 air-to-ground systems in the business aviation and commercial aviation markets."
Gogo Biz allows passengers and flight crews to access the internet above 10,000 feet in the continental U.S. and portions of Alaska, using their own Wi-Fi enabled laptops, tablets, smartphones, electronic flight bags and other mobile devices. Gogo Biz service is expected to be available in portions of Canada beginning in the first quarter of 2014.
