Gogo, the global leader in providing broadband connectivity solutions and wireless entertainment to the aviation industry, announced that it will partner with Air France-KLM to connect its existing long-haul fleet representing 124 aircraft, with an airline option to install the technology on additional aircraft in the future.  

The fleet of aircraft receiving Gogo's 2Ku technology will include numerous aircraft types, including the Boeing 777 and Airbus A330s. The first aircraft is expected to be in service end of next year, with the bulk of the installations taking place during 2018-2019, said Gogo.

Gogo on Wednesday also announced that it is building a faster version of its air-to-ground system for business and commercial aircraft that will provide speeds of 100Mbps to an aircraft, about 10 times more than Gogo’s existing system. The new system is expected to be available in 18 months.

Michael Small, Gogo's president and CE
We are delighted to bring Gogo's industry leading 2Ku technology to one of the largest airlines in the world and two of the most iconic brands in commercial aviation. 2Ku delivers a ground-like performance to aircraft flying around the world today, including the ability to stream video.
