April 4, 2017– Gogo has been selected by Airbus as a lead supplier for its High Bandwidth Connectivity (HBC) program. The designation officially enables factory line-fit installation of Gogo’s 2Ku global satellite solution on the Airbus A320 Family, A330, and A380 aircraft after a successful offerability process and further system certification.
Being part of Airbus’ HBC program means airlines can place future aircraft orders with Airbus and have Gogo’s 2Ku technology installed at the factory on all major fleet types. Those aircraft are then delivered with the technology already installed and ready for service from day one.
Anand Chari, executive vice president and CTO at Gogo stated, “The selection is acknowledgement of the traction we’ve made with 2Ku in the marketplace. It’s also validation of the long-term viability of this technology and its ability to serve commercial aviation for the foreseeable future.”
