Aircraft ‘fractional ownership’ airline Jet IT has selected Gogo Business Aviation’s latest system for its fleet of HondaJets, Gulfstream G150s and new Embraer Phenom 300 aircraft.
The aircraft will be equipped with Gogo’s AVANCE L3 system on its fleet of 26 planes. AVANCE L3 comes equipped with Gogo Vision 360 which provides unlimited streaming of on-demand movies, TV programming and news, along with leading digital magazine titles and a 3D moving map. Gogo Vision has a fixed monthly price which eliminates the unpredictability and often high costs associated with inflight streaming.
“After carefully evaluating every inflight connectivity solution, Gogo was the clear winner for the 26 aircraft in our fleet,” said Glenn Gonzales, founder and CEO of Jet It. “We’ve been a longtime customer of Gogo’s and the AVANCE L3 has been proven to meet the needs of our customers. The service Gogo provides is reliable and affordable and their customer support meets the demanding schedules our busy coast-to-coast operations require.”
Jet It currently operates Gogo connectivity systems on its HondaJet aircraft and has committed to installing AVANCE L3 on the remainder of the fleet including every new Phenom 300 aircraft.
“We’re thrilled to partner with Jet It to bring connectivity and inflight entertainment to its travellers,” said Andy Geist, SVP/business development for Gogo. “The AVANCE L3 is the ultimate in scalability and flexibility, and is ideal for midsize and light jets, delivering the benefits of the Gogo AVANCE platform in a small, lightweight form factor.”
Using AVANCE L3, anyone onboard the aircraft can stay connected to email, send text messages, make voice calls, or access flight apps such as moving maps, weather and flight information. For customers looking for full internet connectivity, AVANCE L3 can be enabled to connect to the Gogo Biz data network delivering a 3G experience and is ready for upgrade to Gogo’s global broadband service.
As of September 30th 2022, Gogo reported 3,079 business aircraft flying with Gogo’s AVANCE L5 or L3 system installed, 6,777 aircraft flying with its ATG systems onboard, and 4,484 aircraft with narrowband satellite connectivity installed.
