Boeing to Pursue Gogo In-flight Connectivity on Commercial Aircraft
[Via Satellite 04-15-2015] Gogo has signed a Technical Services Agreement (TSA) with Boeing to assess the company’s technology solutions on Boeing commercial aircraft. The TSA could mark the start of a process for potential future installation on new Boeing aircraft orders.
Gogo is looking to have line-fit evaluations completed in 2015 for its ATG 4 connectivity technology, and testing completed in 2016 for its satellite solutions. The company currently has an agreement with Boeing for line-fit provisions for its ATG 4 on 737NG aircraft.
“As Gogo continues to retrofit aircraft with its various connectivity solutions, it’s crucial to work toward line-fit of these solutions for all new orders so each aircraft comes off the line with Gogo connectivity already installed and ready for service from day one,” said Michael Small, Gogo’s president and CEO.
