Gogo Wins Aeromexico Deal for 737s
Aeromexico has a new agreement to add Gogo's in-flight connectivity network to its fleet of Boeing 737 aircraft, Mexico's largest carrier said Thursday, Dec. 19.
Under the agreement Gogo's Ku-band satellite service will be provided for the 737 fleet, and Inmarsat's SwiftBroadband satellite connectivity for the airline's fleet of regional jets. The connectivity service and Gogo Vision are expected to be available to Aeromexico passengers for the second half of 2014.
The Aeromexico deal follows another recent major international partnership for Gogo, with Japan Airlines (JAL) signing the company's first foreign-based carrier contract to add the Ku-satellite network to its entire domestic fleet beginning in the summer of 2014.
"As the airline that connects Mexico and Mexico with the world, we look forward to being the first Mexican carrier and the first in Latin America to offer our passengers in-flight Wi-Fi via Gogo, the leader in this space," said Andrew Conesa, CEO of Aeromexico.
