Double celebrations at Gogo


It has been a good week for inflight internet company, Gogo, with two big causes for celebration. Firstly, the company has received STC (Supplemental Type Certificate) approval for installation of its 2Ku satellite wi-fi system on the Airbus A321neo, which the company describes as “a major milestone”, especially since several of its airline customers already have this aircraft type in their fleet, or on order.

Gogo has also opened a logistics hub in Amsterdam, with a warehouse that will stock and ship 2Ku parts directly to airline and OEM customers. This hub will mirror the capabilities of Gogo’s existing facility located outside of Chicago, USA.

Gogo’s Amsterdam logistics hub is in operation and is being managed in partnership with Kuehne and Nagel, one of the world’s leading global transport and logistics companies, based in Switzerland

“We believe that expanding these capabilities closer to our airline customers as well as our OEM partners will provide them with the support and flexibility they need during the ramp-up of installing and operating the 2Ku inflight connectivity solution,” said John Wade, president of Gogo’s commercial aviation division.
