Gogo Business Aviation logged 3,000 daily flights last week, showing strong signs of recovery from the virus-related single day low point of 378 daily flights in mid-April.
“I'm encouraged because we're seeing several positive trends taking shape in the market,” comments president Sergio Aguirre.
“We've strived to be a good partner with our customers to get through a very difficult time together, and we're now in the midst of a measurable recovery as flight activity.”
Business aviation hit a low point in April, when many owners chose to park their aircraft and 30 per cent of Gogo Business Aviation's accounts chose to reduce their spending, either through account suspensions or service plan downgrades.
Since that time however, nearly 60 per cent of Gogo's suspended customers have reactivated their service, with approximately 80 per cent reverting to their original service plan.
The number of flights flown with active Gogo service on board has continued to increase, reaching 3,039 last Thursday, close to Gogo's pre-COVID average of 3,500 flights per day. Gogo is actively working with customers to reactivate service quickly as flying activity increases, and installations of new Avance L5 and L3 are on the rise.
“I've been amazed with the level of productivity and engagement our employees have delivered to help our customers and the company get through this unique and challenging time,” Aguirre adds. “And from an innovation standpoint, we have several positive developments that will be released in the coming weeks that will make your Gogo inflight experience even better.”
