NetJets has reached an agreement with Gogo Business Aviation that provides NetJets the ability to upgrade their U.S. aircraft to Gogo AVANCE L5, Gogo 5G, and Gogo Galileo, the company’s Low Earth Orbit (LEO) broadband satellite service. NetJets Owners in Europe will also have the benefit of Gogo Galileo.
Brad Ferrell, Executive Vice President and Chief Administrative Officer for NetJets said: “We are committed to providing our Owners with an exceptional travel experience, and Wi-Fi is a critical component. Our Owners require reliable connectivity to continue their workday or connect with entertainment in-flight, which made AVANCE L5 and Gogo 5G the right platform to meet their needs, especially when traveling across America. Meanwhile, Gogo Galileo is an ideal solution for our European jets: It delivers high performance, it can be installed on any of our aircraft, and it’s backed by Gogo’s award-winning global customer support.”
The 10-year agreement gives NetJets the opportunity to upgrade its entire fleet of aircraft to the AVANCE platform, including 5G and Gogo’s global LEO broadband satellite service, depending on the aircraft’s mission.
Sergio Aguirre, Gogo’s president and chief operating officer said: “Gogo is excited to continue our long-term partnership with NetJets. With more than 450 U.S. aircraft currently equipped with Gogo’s systems, upgrading to AVANCE L5 will improve performance by three times, and Gogo 5G will improve performance several times that. Meanwhile, we are also bringing an even better experience to operators throughout Europe and around the world with Gogo Galileo.”
