Flexjet To Provide In-Flight Wi-Fi

Bombardier has announced that its fractional jet ownership provider Flexjet, is to provide Wi-Fi Internet access onboard as a standard feature on its fractional program aircraft at no additional charge to owners.

Flexjet aircraft will be equipped with Aircell’s Gogo Biz inflight Wi-Fi service. This new system allows Flexjet customers to use any Wi-Fi device, ranging from smartphones to laptops, to access the Web while they fly.

“With Gogo Biz, our aircraft truly transform into high-functioning mobile offices,” said Fred Reid, President, Flexjet. “Flexjet is obsessed with being superior in every way, and we are pleased to offer our customers the ability to stay connected in the air. Gogo Biz was the only choice for us; it is lightweight, affordable, and best of all, it gives our passengers a full-speed Internet experience like they expect on the ground.”

Bombardier said that installation would begin with 25 Challenger 300s and seven Challenger 604/605 jets. All new aircraft will automatically be outfitted with the broadband equipment.

“Connectivity plays an essential role in our lives; it is woven into the fabric of everything we do,” said John Wade, Executive Vice President and General Manager, Aircell. “Whether traveling for business or pleasure, Flexjet customers will reap the benefits of high-speed Internet service on Flexjet’s fractional fleet of Learjet and Challenger aircraft.”
