LAS VEGAS, Oct. 13, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- Jet Edge International, a leader in full-service private aviation, has signed an agreement with Gogo Business Aviation (NASDAQ: GOGO) to become Gogo's 5G launch customer.
Jet Edge has AVANCE L5 installed across the majority of its managed, large-cabin fleet and will upgrade 50 of those aircraft to Gogo 5G over a 24-month period.
"Choosing Gogo was an easy decision because of their proven track record of meeting their commitments and delivering the best inflight connectivity in the industry," said Bill Papariella, CEO of Jet Edge. "After a thorough evaluation of other inflight connectivity services, we chose Gogo 5G – it was the obvious choice and we're thrilled to offer it to our discerning clients."
Gogo 5G has been designed to deliver high throughput with very low latency to address the increased demand in data-heavy services and applications in use today, as well as emerging technologies in the future.
Deployment of the 5G network has begun and the onboard hardware is in certification approval. Gogo 5G will serve aircraft operating within the contiguous United States and the nationwide network is expected to launch in the second half of 2022.
"We have a long-standing relationship with Jet Edge and by upgrading to Gogo 5G, it shows the commitment Jet Edge is making to its clients to provide the best inflight connectivity and entertainment experience in business aviation," said Andy Geist, senior vice president of business development for Gogo. "With AVANCE L5 installed across most of its fleet, upgrading to 5G becomes a relatively quick and easy process."
