Gogo Business Aviation has been selected by Canadian fractional ownership aircraft AirSprint Private Aviation for its in-flight connectivity (IFC). AirSprint will begin upgrading its Cessna Citation and Embraer aircraft to Gogo 5G—making it Gogo’s first Canadian fleet customer.

“We strive to provide the highest level of service, and we are always looking for new and innovative ways to enhance our fractional owners’ experience—seamless inflight connectivity (IFC) from Gogo was an easy decision,” said James Elian, President & CEO of AirSprint. “Gogo’s 5G system will allow us to provide the best-in-class IFC our owners expect.”

Gogo 5G is expected to deliver speeds five to 10 times faster than current speeds, at approximately 25 Mbps on average, and 75-80 Mbps at its peak. Expansion of the Gogo 5G network in Canada will add significantly more time for inflight connectivity for operators flying in or through the country. Gogo is the only air-to-ground (ATG) company in business aviation with coverage in Canada and Alaska.

“AirSprint’s selection of Gogo 5G reinforces the value of ATG connectivity for aircraft flying in North America that demand exceptional speeds,” said Sergio Aguirre, president and COO of Gogo.

As of June 30th, Gogo reported 7,064 business aircraft flying with its ATG systems onboard, 3,598 of which are flying with a Gogo AVANCE L5 or L3 system; and 4,433 aircraft with narrowband satellite connectivity installed.
