Travelers on Volato’s fleet of HondaJet aircraft will soon have access to SmartSky‘s inflight internet services. The two companies agreed to fit more than 20 new jets in the fractional fleet operations with the SmartSky LITE solution, with an option to retrofit existing aircraft in the fleet.

Chalk up another record revenue quarter for Gogo. But the company expects the next couple years to be rough, with downward revisions on revenue, free cash flow, and other metrics.
Gogo notified debtors of its intention to pay off $100 million of outstanding debt, a move that will help the company reduce its long-term interest expenses.
Gogo scored an early victory in the proceedings of the patent infringement lawsuit brought by SmartSky. The District Court in Delaware declined SmartSky’s request for a preliminary injunction, allowing Gogo to continue developing, installing, and marketing the Gogo 5G solution.
Wondering where SmartSky’s air-to-ground inflight WiFi towers are? The company appears happy to share that information. It released a map showing the coverage footprint in response to “several requests for a coverage map to illustrate the availability of SmartSky’s inflight connectivity and the distinctive way in which it is delivered.”
Corporate jets are back in the air, and they’re more connected than ever. Gogo’s Q2 results indicates a strong rebound in activity for its corporate jet market, boosting revenues. But the company’s 5G network upgrade will slip a bit more owing to chip shortages.
Gogo is getting back into the satellite connectivity business in a big way. The company announced a deal to integrate the OneWeb low earth orbit (LEO) constellation into its business aviation connectivity network, providing global coverage for its customers.
In-flight WiFi demand shows no sign of abating. Gogo’s latest statistics show record usage levels on its air-to-ground network, along with a rising number of aircraft installed and hardware shipping to new customers.
Gogo’s new 5G in-flight WiFi service moved step closer to reality, with the airplane antenna receiving certification from the Federal Aviation Administration.
“We are in active conversations in the LEO and ESA world.”
That comment from Gogo CEO Oakleigh Thorne earlier this summer kicked off significant speculation on what the next next generation (after Gogo 5G) will look like.
