• Aircell will offer GX Aviation satellite airtime to the business aviation market

Las Vegas, NV [NBAA 2013] | October 22, 2013– Aircell (NASDAQ: GOGO), a leading provider of in-flight connectivity equipment and services to the business aviation market, announces that it has been appointed by Honeywell Aerospace as a distribution partner and airtime reseller for GX Aviation (GX), Inmarsat’s emerging Ka-band satellite service in the business aviation market.

The first globally-available, high-speed broadband service, GX Aviation will offer unprecedented bandwidth and online performance to the aeronautical market. GX Aviation is scheduled to enter service in early 2015.

The agreement was signed with Honeywell, which is the designated business aviation reseller and hardware provider for GX Aviation.

“Honeywell’s high-speed Ka-band connectivity solutions will support the growth trajectory in consumer electronics enabling more and more flexible cabin capabilities,” said Mike Edmonds, Vice President, Marketing and Product Management of Aerospace Services at Honeywell Aerospace. “Honeywell and Aircell will work together to offer airtime for business jet travelers through truly global, consistent and high-speed connectivity.”

John Wade, Aircell’s Executive Vice President and General Manager, said, “We’re pleased to be selected to offer this important new service to the business aviation market. Aircell already offers one of the most comprehensive in-flight connectivity portfolios in the industry, and offering GX Aviation services is a very logical addition.”

Announcement Expands Aircell’s Suite of Services
Adding the GX Aviation service to its portfolio will expand Aircell’s product and service offering and further support its mission to meet any business aircraft’s need for communications, connectivity and entertainment, regardless of aircraft type or geography.

A number of unique Aircell features will be available to GX Aviation customers.
