gogo- Pioneers of in-flight Connectivity Technology


 

 

Very recently, FAA has granted two more Supplemental Type Certificates (STCs) to gogo for installing Ku-band satellite connectivity instruments on two more types of aircrafts- Boeing 757-200 and 767-400s operated by Delta Airlines. The company has to receive one more STC before its the goahead to deploy its instruments on full fleet of Delta Airlines.

gogo is a the new avatar of the former Aircell and is a leading provider of in-flight connectivity solutions to the civil airlines and business airlines of USA. By providing the wi-fi access to the passengers during the flight, it enables them to remain connected via internet all the time during the course of flight on both the domestic and the international routes of the carriers. Its services are not limited only to the in-flight wi-fi, but also cover entertainment, text  messaging, voice based services and a number of communication related services.

As of now, gogo has provided its services to 2000 commercial and 6000 business aircrafts, and even to heights beyond 30000 feet.
