Gogo on Tuesday said its air-to-ground in-flight connectivity system achieved a program milestone, the installation of its 1,500th commercial aircraft. Year to date, the company has installed Gogo on more than 140 aircraft.
"This is a big milestone for Gogo and it's obviously big for passengers who want to stay connected at 30,000 feet," said Michael Small, Gogo's president and CEO. "Since 2008, we've worked to get Gogo up and running on nine of our airline partners, which represent approximately 87 percent of Internet-enabled North American commercial aircraft."
Gogo can now be found on nine major airlines including on all domestic AirTran, Virgin America and nearly all Delta Air Lines and Alaska Airlines flights. Gogo is also currently installed on more than 300 American Airlines aircraft and on select US Airways, Frontier Airlines, Air Canada and United Airlines flights. US Airways recently announced plans to expand Gogo service across the Airbus A320 (A319, A320 and A321) family and Embraer 190 fleet. With this expansion, US Airways will have 90 percent of its mainline domestic fleet equipped with Wi-Fi Internet access, Gogo said.
