Gogo, Delta Private Jets Team Up To Deliver 4G Service, A New Generation of Connectivity for Business Aviation

BROOMFIELD, Colo., and ERLANGER, Ky. – June 15, 2016 – A first-of-its-kind fleet-wide agreement between Gogo Inc. (NASDAQ: GOGO) and Delta Private Jets, Inc. (DPJ) will soon deliver a 4G inflight experience to DPJ’s customers.

DPJ, a wholly owned subsidiary of Delta Air Lines (NYSE: DAL), plans to equip its fleet of more than 70 aircraft with Gogo Biz 4G to provide a superior service to passengers. The new service will enable a reliable 4G experience – including services such as Gogo Vision, providing the latest movies, TV, flight tracker, weather reports, and additional features; Gogo Text & Talk, allowing passengers to call and text with their personal smart phones and mobile numbers; streaming video and audio; as well as face-to-face conversations with a user’s favorite applications; email with attachments; web browsing; and more – on a proven network in the continental U.S. and large portions of Alaska and Canada.

Delta Private Jets is the only private jet company affiliated with a major commercial airline – an unmatched competitive advantage in a fractured marketplace. Providing this unique technology offering is one in a series of enhancements that DPJ will be introducing to ensure a seamless, comfortable and convenient experience for customers from takeoff to landing.

“We are excited to bring this technology to the discerning customers who turn to Delta Private Jets for their specialized travel needs,” said David Sneed, Executive Vice president and Chief Operating Officer of DPJ. “We are also proud to further differentiate our company by becoming the first to offer Gogo Biz 4G on a fleet-wide scale. After careful evaluation of the available options for inflight connectivity, it was clear that only Gogo could deliver a robust experience on a proven network.”

Gogo is the leading provider of inflight connectivity and wireless in-flight entertainment solutions to the global aero market. The new agreement builds upon its successful relationship serving Delta’s commercial fleet and represents the first multi-aircraft adoption of Gogo Biz 4G in the private aviation sector.

Gogo Biz 4G leverages Gogo’s existing air-to-ground network and technology which has already flown hundreds of thousands of hours aboard thousands of business and commercial aircraft. The Gogo Biz 4G equipment package incorporates dual-band 802.11ac Wi-Fi service and a host of other features – all from a single, lightweight box.

Following the successful completion of the initial phases of flight testing, Gogo Biz 4G remains on track for launch in the second quarter of 2017.

“Our goal is to deliver a robust 4G experience inflight,” said John Wade, Gogo Business Aviation’s Executive Vice President and General Manager. “After thorough testing on our existing network at altitude, including air and ground congestion, we are confident Gogo Biz 4G’s performance will meet the expectations of Delta Private Jets and delight its customers.”
