Airbus has selected Gogo to be a lead supplier of its High Bandwidth Connectivity (HBC) program, Gogo said. The Airbus A320 family, A330 and A380 can now undergo factory line-fit installation of Gogo’s 2Ku after “successful offerability process and further system certification,” the company said.
"We are proud to be selected by Airbus as a supplier for Airbus' high bandwidth connectivity program and look forward to working with them to provide our industry leading 2Ku solution to their customers," said Anand Chari, EVP and CTO at Gogo. "The selection is acknowledgement of the traction we've made with 2Ku in the marketplace. It's also validation of the long-term viability of this technology and its ability to serve commercial aviation for the foreseeable future."
