Alaska Airlines Adds Gogo 2Ku IFC
Gogo and long-time partner, Alaska Airlines, launched Gogo 2Ku high-speed connectivity and Gogo Vision wireless In Flight Entertainment (IFE) on an A321neo featuring the airline’s redesigned cabin interior. Alaska will have satellite Wi-Fi powered by 2Ku available to guests on most of its Boeing and Airbus mainline fleet by the end of 2020.
Gogo 2Ku is an In Flight Connectivity (IFC) solution and delivers an internet experience comparable to what guests have on the ground, including the ability to stream video from popular streaming video services. 2Ku also has global coverage, which means guests onboard Alaska aircraft will have service nearly everywhere they fly — even over the ocean to Hawaii, where connectivity was not previously available.
“Gogo 2Ku is a key feature of the seamless digital experience created by Alaska as part of its integration with Virgin America,” said Gogo Commercial Aviation President John Wade. “We are proud to be part of this transformation as two great airlines come together.”
