“Our success wouldn’t be possible without the invaluable contribution of our dealers and the great service they provide to our mutual customers to help them understand and enjoy in-flight connectivity and entertainment,” said John Wade, Gogo Business Aviation’s executive vice president and general manager. “We congratulate and thank this year’s winners of the Gogo Business Aviation 51,000 Five award.”
Award selection is based on dealers’ demonstrated commitment to helping customers get the most out of in-flight connectivity, as well as their technical expertise, sales performance and other factors. Representing a pinnacle of achievement for a Gogo Business Aviation dealer, the award’s name was inspired by the highest altitude reached by aircraft in the business aviation industry – 51,000 feet.
Inflight connectivity services dramatically increase the productivity and enjoyment of the business aviation travel experience for passengers and flight crews. The services can also increase aircraft resale values and provide a competitive edge in charter and fractional markets. Inmarsat’s SwiftBroadband service provides voice and data services with near-global coverage at all altitudes and on the ground.
