Gogo Business Aviation Expands Gogo Cloud Service In Europe

Paris’ Le Bourget airport is first to be equipped with wireless content delivery network for Gogo Vision

GENEVA – 25 May 2016 – EBACE (stand D051) Gogo Inc. (NASDAQ: GOGO), the leading provider of in-flight connectivity and wireless in-flight entertainment solutions to the global aero market, today announced that Gogo Cloud, the company's wireless content delivery network, is expanding into Europe with service available at select locations.

Gogo Cloud is currently available at the Jetex FBO at Paris-Le Bourget Airport (LFPB), and will be installed at two additional FBOs in the United Kingdom by the end of August 2016: London City Airport Jet Centre (LCY) and TAG Farnborough Airport (FAB) located just outside central London.

All three are key strategic locations in two of Europe’s largest and most important cities for business travellers. Paris-Le Bourget was the busiest business aviation airport in Europe last year with more than 50,000 movements, and TAG Farnborough consistently ranks in the top five busiest business airports in Europe. Additional FBOs will be added in Europe throughout 2017.

“Gogo Cloud is about ease of use and peace of mind because the service is automatic delivering large data files to aircraft ensuring a quality in-flight entertainment experience,” said John Wade, executive vice president and general manager for Gogo Business Aviation. “Our customers in Europe have heard how well the service works in the U.S. and wanted us to bring it across the Atlantic. What we’re announcing today at EBACE is the start of an expansion that will spread to other locations across Europe.”

The first service of its kind in the business aviation market, Gogo Cloud allows customers of Gogo Vision – the company’s in-flight entertainment (IFE) service – to automatically receive the latest updates whenever they visit a Gogo Cloud location. Gogo Vision serves up a licensed library of the hottest Hollywood movies and TV shows. It also includes features such as news, a flight tracker, flight progress information, destination weather, screen sharing, and in-cabin file transfer.

When an aircraft arrives at a Gogo Cloud location, Gogo's UCS 5000 smart-cabin system automatically connects to the Gogo Cloud Wi-Fi signal and does a complete content update without any intervention from the flight crew. The transfer takes place at ultra-high speed – typically less than 60 seconds to load a 30-minute TV episode, and about three minutes for a feature-length movie. The UCS 5000 system is business aviation's first all-in-one smart router/media server.

Gogo Cloud Available for Individual Flight Department Facilities

Equipment packages are also available to individual flight departments that want to bring the convenience of Gogo Vision IFE updates to their own facilities. A simple equipment package, which is included with a UCS smart-cabin system purchase, turns a hangar into a Gogo Cloud location providing continuous, fully automatic updates any time their aircraft is at that location.

This week, Gogo Business Aviation is displaying its complete range of in-flight connectivity and entertainment solutions at EBACE2016. Business aircraft operators are invited to visit Gogo at stand D051. More information is available on Gogo’s EBACE 2016 landing page and by following @GogoBizAv on Twitter for in-show updates.
