[Avionics Today 06-15-2016] Gogo and Delta Private Jets have signed an agreement to deliver a 4G In-Flight Connectivity (IFC) service to DPJ's customers. DPJ, a wholly owned subsidiary of Delta Air Lines, plans to equip its fleet of more than 70 aircraft with Gogos’ air-to-ground IFC technology, Gogo Biz 4G.

The new service aims to enable a 4G experience, including services such as Gogo Vision, allowing flight tracker, weather reports, and additional features; Gogo Text & Talk, allowing passengers to call and text with their personal smartphones and mobile numbers; streaming video and audio, as well as face-to-face conversations with a user's applications; email with attachments; web browsing; among other features. The service is available in the continental U.S. and large portions of Alaska and Canada.

The new agreement builds upon Gogo’s relationship with Delta's commercial fleet and represents the first multi-aircraft adoption of Gogo Biz 4G in the private aviation sector, according to the company.
