First flight for Gogo Ku-band satellite service

0

25 March 2014 saw the first aircraft in Delta’s long-haul international fleet go live with Gogo’s connectivity service on a flight between LA and Tokyo; this B747-400 is also the first aircraft in the world to fly with Gogo’s Ku-band satellite service.

“Gogo has built and operationalised a network that has the ability to provide connectivity related services to Delta’s entire fleet of domestic and international aircraft from regional jets to 777s – almost anywhere they fly around the globe,” said Gogo’s president and CEO, Michael Small. “Delta will soon have more than 1,000 planes, including all two-class regional, domestic and international aircraft flying with Gogo’s connectivity services.”

Gogo is scheduled to complete the installation of wi-fi services on Delta’s entire international fleet, including its Boeing 777, 767, 747, Airbus 330 and transoceanic Boeing 757 aircraft operating on international, long-haul routes, by the end of 2015.
