Travel Management Company completed activation of the Aircell ATG 2000 onboard system on its charter fleet of 37 Hawker 400XPs, providing wireless high-speed Internet service from a passenger smartphone or tablet via Aircell’s Gogo Biz.

The Elkhart, Ind.-based operator claims to be “the largest charter operator and owner of Hawker 400XPs and 800/850XPs in the country.” The fleet of 30 Hawker 800/850XPs was previously equipped with a mix of Aircell’s ATG 4000 and ATG 5000 packages and Gogo Biz, also allowing a wireless connection via smartphone or tablet.

The installation of Gogo Biz offers passengers in-flight Internet service throughout the contiguous U.S. states and most of Eastern Alaska. “The popularity of Gogo Biz on our fleet of Hawker 800/850XPs convinced us that adding it to the fleet of Hawker 400XPs was the right approach,” said TMC president Scott Wise. “Now every flight on a TMC jet will include complimentary wireless high-speed Internet service.”
