Air France-KLM to equip fleet with 2Ku


September 29, 2016 – Air France-KLM is partnering with Gogo to install 2Ku connectivity technology on its existing long-haul fleet of 124 aircraft, including Boeing 777s and Airbus A330s. The first connected aircraft is expected to be in service at the end of next year, with the bulk of the installations taking place during 2018-2019.

“We are delighted to bring 2Ku technology to one of the largest airlines in the world and two of the most iconic brands in commercial aviation,” said Michael Small, Gogo’s president and CEO. “2Ku delivers a ground-like performance to aircraft flying around the world today, including the ability to stream video. One of the many benefits of 2Ku is that it’s built on an open architecture and can leverage new technology advancements in the future, which means the technology will get even better over time and will provide passengers with a superior connectivity experience now and in the future.”
