[Avionics Magazine 05-27-2016] Gogo's business aviation division announced at this week's European Business Aviation Conference and Exhibition (EBACE) that the company's Gogo Cloud wireless content delivery network is expanding in Europe.
Gogo Cloud is currently available at the Jetex FBO at Paris-Le Bourget Airport (LFPB), and will be installed at two additional FBOs in the United Kingdom by the end of August 2016: London City Airport Jet Centre (LCY) and TAG Farnborough Airport (FAB) located just outside central London. All three are key strategic locations in two of Europe's largest and most important cities for business travellers. Paris-Le Bourget was the busiest business aviation airport in Europe last year with more than 50,000 movements, and TAG Farnborough consistently ranks in the top five busiest business airports in Europe. Additional FBOs will be added in Europe throughout 2017.
Gogo Cloud allows customers of Gogo Vision — the company's in-flight entertainment (IFE) service — to automatically receive the latest updates whenever they visit a Gogo Cloud location. When an aircraft arrives at a Gogo Cloud location, Gogo's UCS 5000 smart-cabin system automatically connects to the Gogo Cloud Wi-Fi signal and does a complete content update without any intervention from the flight crew.
