LAS VEGAS, Oct. 22, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --[NBAA2013] – 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."

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. One example is the company's new Gogo Text & Talk service – which
allows passengers to call and text via Wi-Fi in flight, using their own
smartphones and mobile numbers. Customers will also be able to receive a
single monthly invoice for all their Aircell in-flight services.

Aircell will announce specific GX Aviation monthly service plans and rates at
