Aircell, Avjet Hit Gogo Biz Milestone
Aircell said Avjet Corp., an international provider of aircraft charter and management solutions, has reached the mid-point in a program to equip its charter fleet with Aircell’s Gogo Biz in-flight Internet service. More than 50 percent of Avjet’s charter aircraft now offer the service.
Gogo Biz allows passengers and flight crews to enjoy high-speed Internet capabilities above 10,000 feet in the continental U.S. and portions of Alaska, using their own Wi-Fi enabled laptops, tablets, smartphones, electronic flight bags and other mobile devices.
Mark Lefever, President of Avjet Corporation, said, “In-flight Internet service has quickly become an expected amenity in the charter industry. In today’s market, it’s actually becoming increasingly difficult to book charter aircraft without it. Avjet is pleased to be equipping its fleet with the service that passengers want the most. We’ve been very pleased with Gogo Biz – the service has been fantastic, passengers love it and the economics are very positive.
“We debuted the service on two additional aircraft in the last 60 days and we have several more installations in the planning stages. By this time next year, we expect most of our fleet will be equipped with Gogo Biz,” concluded Lefever.
