Jet Edge and Gogo Business Aviation announced a new long-term partnership whereby the Avance L5 connectivity system will be installed across Jet Edge’s AdvantEdge and managed super-mid and large-cabin fleet. Avance L5 is designed to deliver a 4G inflight wi-fi experience.
“Jet Edge is proud to partner with Gogo, the industry leader for high-speed wi-fi,” said Bill Papariella, CEO of Jet Edge. “The Avance L5 system is truly a game-changer for connectivity in the air. Providing inflight streaming and overall faster speed is yet another way we are enhancing and evolving our fleet to deliver an exceptional private aviation experience for our clients.”
Jet Edge offers an extensive selection of point-to-point super-mid Bombardier Challenger and large-cabin Gulfstream aircraft in the USA and said the move would make it the first fleet to be entirely equipped with Gogo Avance L5.
The conversion is slated for completion by the end of the third quarter of 2021. The commitment to an all-Avance L5 charter fleet has already begun, with more than 20 aircraft now equipped with Gogo’s 4G wi-fi.
“Our relationship with Jet Edge goes back many years and we’re thrilled they’ve chosen Gogo to provide connectivity across their entire fleet,” said Sergio Aguirre, president of Gogo Business Aviation. “By upgrading to the Avance L5, it shows the commitment Jet Edge is making to its clients to provide the best inflight connectivity and entertainment experience in business aviation, with a path to Gogo 5G in the future.”
The Gogo system enables the use of streaming services such as Netflix, YouTube and Hulu; video conferencing; and on-demand movie viewing. Passengers are able to access high-speed internet for web browsing on their personal smartphones, laptops and tablets. Real-time data for cockpit apps, and remote diagnostics and support, are also available.
