[Avionics Today March 25, 2014] Gogo's in-flight connectivity service has gone live on the first aircraft from Delta's long-haul international fleet, a Boeing 747-400.
The 747-400 will also be the first aircraft to fly with Gogo's Ku-band satellite service, which is being deployed across the entire Delta international aircraft fleet. The fleet equipage is scheduled for completion in 2015.
"Gogo has built and operationalized a network that has the ability to provide connectivity related services to Delta's entire fleet of domestic and international aircraft from regional jets to 777s — almost anywhere they fly around the globe," said Gogo's president and CEO, Michael Small. "Delta will soon have more than 1,000 planes, including all two-class regional, domestic and international aircraft, flying with Gogo's connectivity services."
