Aircraft charter and management firm Jet Edge has agreed to install Gogo’s Avance L5 in its entire fleet of super-midsize and large-cabin business jets under a long-term partnership. In the deal announced yesterday, Los Angeles-based Jet Edge expects to complete the conversion to Avance L5 by the end of the third quarter.
So far, more than 20 of the super-mid Bombardier Challenger and large-cabin Gulfstream jets in its fleet have been equipped with Avance L5, which allows Jet Edge to tap into Gogo’s 4G connectivity and, eventually, its 5G service. “The Avance L5 system is truly a game-changer for connectivity in the air,” said Jet Edge CEO Bill Papariella. “Providing in-flight streaming and overall faster speed is yet another way we are enhancing and evolving our fleet to deliver an exceptional private aviation experience for our clients.”
Jet Edge’s fleet comprises more than 75 business jets spanning size categories from light jets to bizliners and types including Boeing BBJs, Bombardier Learjets, and Dassault Falcons.
