Formerly known as Aircell, Gogo® has quickly become the world’s leading provider of inflight connectivity, and has revolutionized travel with our unique brand of exclusive in-air experiences. It all began in 1991 at a barbecue joint in Denison, Texas, where company founder Jimmy Ray sketched onto a paper napkin his visionary idea for a telephone system on aircraft. As a result of this eureka moment, Gogo became the only company authorized by the FCC and FAA to use cellular frequencies for in-flight communication.
Since then, we’ve set a new standard for innovation. Our exclusive FCC frequency license, awarded in 2006, brought with it daunting challenges of design, patent, and deployment. Yet in less than two years’ time, we captured the world’s attention with the power of our proprietary Air-To-Ground broadband network – one tailor-made for in-air connectivity.
In 2008, Gogo made its stunning debut on a commercial aircraft, bringing robust Internet access to the skies and transforming the commercial air experience for modern travelers. Coast to coast, border to border, Gogo delivered broadband coverage to a place it had never been: 30,000 feet above the earth’s surface.
Gogo® is fast becoming everyone’s favorite part of flying. By allowing travelers to get online, in air, Gogo keeps them connected to life. Using Gogo’s exclusive network and services, passengers with laptops and other Wi-Fi enabled devices can get online on all domestic AirTran Airways and Virgin America flights and on select Air Canada, Alaska Airlines, American Airlines, Delta Air Lines, Frontier Airlines, United Airlines and US Airways flights – as well as on thousands of business aircraft – bringing the total to more than 6,000 Gogo equipped aircraft to date.
Back on the ground, Gogo’s 400+ employees in Itasca, IL and Broomfield, CO are working to continually redefine flying as a productive, socially connected, and all-around more satisfying experience. Connect with us at gogoair.com, on Facebook at facebook.com/gogo and on Twitter at twitter.com/gogo.
Behind every great management team is a long list of accolades, degrees, and student loans. Our team of managers and board of directors are no different. We at Gogo® have brought together some of the most respected minds in the ecommerce and communications industries. Their active participation in our day-to-day operations has helped make Gogo the world’s leading provider of in-air connectivity. We’re proud to introduce them here.
