Gogo Rolls Out Satellite IFC Service on New Air France Jets
Aviation broadband connectivity products and services provider Gogo Inc. has launched commercial service on the first two Air France aircraft outlined in its contract with the airline – an Airbus A330 and a Boeing 777. The two Air France jets are equipped with Gogo’s 2Ku high-speed satellite connectivity system. Installations are underway for the balance of Air France’s long-haul fleet of 83 aircraft, Gogo said.
“Air France has reached an exciting milestone as it brings its first Airbus and Boeing aircraft online, giving its passengers access to high-speed Wi-Fi on long-haul flights,” John Wade, President of Commercial Aviation at Gogo, said in a statement. “As we continue to install aircraft with 2Ku, we remain highly focused on performance in order to provide a great experience on every aircraft, every flight.”
Gogo previously signed a contract to install its 2Ku inflight service on 124 aircraft co-operated by Air France and KLM in September 2016. The airlines rolled out their first service-equipped jets earlier this summer.
