June 20, 2016 – Following the signing of a fleet-wide agreement, Gogo will soon be delivering a 4G inflight experience to Delta Private Jets (DPJ) customers.
DPJ, a wholly owned subsidiary of Delta Air Lines, plans to equip its fleet of more than 70 aircraft with Gogo Biz 4G, which will enable passengers to access features such as movies, TV, flight tracker, weather reports, cell phone calling and texting, streaming video and audio, and web browsing – all on a proven network in the continental USA and large portions of Alaska and Canada. Gogo Biz 4G leverages Gogo’s existing air-to-ground network and technology. The Gogo Biz 4G equipment package incorporates dual-band 802.11ac Wi-Fi service and other features – all from a single box. The agreement builds upon Gogo’s relationship serving Delta’s commercial fleet.
David Sneed, EVP and COO of DPJ stated, “We are proud to further differentiate our company by becoming the first to offer Gogo Biz 4G on a fleet-wide scale. After careful evaluation of the available options for inflight connectivity, it was clear that only Gogo could deliver a robust experience on a proven network.”
Following the successful completion of the initial phases of flight testing, Gogo Biz 4G remains on track for launch in the second quarter of 2017.
“Our goal is to deliver a robust 4G experience inflight,” said John Wade, Gogo Business Aviation’s EVP and general manager. “After thorough testing on our existing network at altitude, including air and ground congestion, we are confident Gogo Biz 4G’s performance will meet the expectations of Delta Private Jets and delight its customers.”
