[Avionics Today 03-21-2016] Gogo has expanded its connectivity partnership with Air Canada to include its international fleet, including the Boeing 787. Under the new agreement, Gogo will install its satellite-based 2Ku connectivity technology on Air Canada's wide-body international aircraft, starting with the Boeing 777 this fall.

"While business travelers will welcome satellite Wi-Fi service as a productivity tool, it will have widespread appeal for all travelers by allowing them to stay in touch, access the internet and enjoy additional entertainment options throughout their entire journey," said Benjamin Smith, president of passenger airlines at Air Canada.
