NetJets signs connectivity upgrade agreement with Gogo

The 10-year agreement gives NetJets the opportunity to upgrade its entire fleet of aircraft to the AVANCE platform, including 5G and Gogo’s global LEO broadband satellite service, depending on the aircraft’s mission. Gogo is planning to launch its Gogo 5G in the third quarter of 2024 and its OneWeb powered LEO service in the second half of 2024.

The new agreement between NetJets and Gogo Business Aviation provides NetJets the ability to upgrade their U.S. aircraft to Gogo AVANCE L5, Gogo 5G, and Gogo Galileo, the company’s Low Earth Orbit (LEO) broadband satellite service. NetJets Owners in Europe will also have the benefit of Gogo Galileo.

“We are committed to providing our Owners with an exceptional travel experience, and Wi-Fi is a critical component,” said Brad Ferrell, Executive Vice President and Chief Administrative Officer for NetJets. “Our Owners require reliable connectivity to continue their workday or connect with entertainment in-flight, which made AVANCE L5 and Gogo 5G the right platform to meet their needs, especially when traveling across America. Meanwhile, Gogo Galileo is an ideal solution for our European jets: It delivers high performance, it can be installed on any of our aircraft, and it’s backed by Gogo’s award-winning global customer support.”

For NetJets’ aircraft in Europe, Gogo Galileo offers two fuselage-mount antennas: HDX, which is designed with a small form factor that can be installed on any size business aircraft, including super light jets and large turboprops, and FDX, which is designed to fit on larger aircraft and will deliver best-in-class performance.

“Gogo is excited to continue our long-term partnership with NetJets,” said Sergio Aguirre, Gogo’s president and chief operating officer. “With more than 450 U.S. aircraft currently equipped with Gogo’s systems, upgrading to AVANCE L5 will improve performance by three times, and Gogo 5G will improve performance several times that. Meanwhile, we are also bringing an even better experience to operators throughout Europe and around the world with Gogo Galileo.”
