Air China trials wireless IFE from Gogo

Air China is trialling Gogo’s wireless IFE solution. The first live trial was conducted on 15 November on a commercial Boeing 737 travelling from Beijing to Chengdu, China. Live trials are expected to continue through the first quarter of 2012.

“We are excited to bring Gogo’s wireless IFE system to Air China and look forward to working with them on providing affordable entertainment options to their passengers,” said Michael Small, Gogo’s president and chief executive officer. “As the first international air carrier to offer Gogo’s IFE equipment, this represents a significant milestone for Gogo and for Air China.”

“Gogo has a proven track record of providing wireless solutions to the aviation industry and currently is the only company to have a wireless IFE solution in market and available to consumers,” said Zhang Yang, Air China’s assistant president. “We look forward to working with them as we become the first Chinese air carrier to leverage their equipment to bring a wireless entertainment option to our passengers.”

Gogo says its wireless IFE system can be installed on an aircraft overnight. Using Gogo’s exclusive network and services, passengers with laptops and other WiFi-enabled devices can get online on all domestic AirTran Airways, Virgin America and Alaska Airlines flights, on all domestic mainline Delta flights and on select Air Canada, American Airlines, United Airlines and US Airways flights.
