Gogo to Provide Coverage Over Canada
Gogo announced that it will begin serving passengers on commercial and business aircraft flying over Canada with in-flight Internet access, beginning next year. Cell site construction is expected to begin in the fourth quarter of this year, and the network is scheduled to be in operation by the end of 2013.
The network will focus primarily on Canadian routes which are already being served by Gogo’s existing U.S. and Canadian commercial airline clients. Business aircraft using Aircell, a Gogo company, to provide Gogo Biz high speed Internet will also be serviced by the new network.
Aircell also announced that its in-flight Internet service is being added to nearly 100 aircraft operated by NetJets, a private business jet rental and fractional ownership company.
Gogo service is available on more than 1,600 commercial aircraft, including all domestic mainline Delta Airlines flights, all AirTran Airways and Virgin America flights, and select AirCanada, Alaska Airlines, and American Airlines flights, among others.
