While thousands of airliners remain grounded, Gogo reports its private jet subscribers increased this year despite the COVID-19 downturn
Despite one of the most difficult business environments in aviation history, Gogo expects to end 2020 with more business aviation air-to-ground (ATG) subscribers than when the year began. Gogo entered 2020 with 5,669 ATG subscribers online and is expected to end the year with more than 5,700 subscribers online.

Gogo is lowering the altitude at which passengers can begin using its connectivity services from 10,000 feet above ground level (AGL) to 3,000 feet for a significant portion of its air-to-ground fleet, beginning July 20, 2020.
