BROOMFIELD, Colo., Aug. 12 /PRNewswire/ -- Aircell, the world's leading provider of inflight connectivity, today announced that the company's air-to-ground high-speed Internet service for the business aviation market - formerly known as Aircell High Speed Internet - has been rebranded as Gogo Biz(TM) Inflight Internet.

The move will more closely align the company's service in its two primary markets - business aviation and commercial airlines. The increased brand familiarity and new value-add programs will make it easier for travelers to enjoy the productivity-enhancing benefits of inflight Internet, regardless of the type of aircraft they're aboard. An overview follows of the services available in each market.

John Wade, Aircell's Executive Vice President and General Manager, said, "The benefits of inflight Internet don't discriminate by the type of aircraft you're flying on. Immediately from the start, Aircell's air-to-ground technology developed an enthusiastic base of loyal customers in the airline and business aviation markets alike. Now by sharing a common brand in both markets, it's even easier for travelers to make that connection."

New Inflight Internet Programs for Business Aviation

As part of today's Gogo Biz announcement, Aircell is also launching three new cross-market programs for business aircraft operators. The programs provide additional convenience, value and savings to companies that utilize commercial airlines along with business aviation in meeting their overall travel requirements. Here is a summary of the three programs:

Wade continued, "We're very pleased to debut the three new crossover programs. Representing the first of their kind for our company, they provide value to corporate flight departments and personnel throughout their companies."
