British Airways, Aer Lingus and Iberia select Gogo for in-flight Connectivity

  • Published by Ozgur Tore

gogoGogo, the leader in in-flight connectivity and wireless entertainment services for commercial and business fleets around the world, will bring its 2Ku technology to three of the most iconic brands in commercial aviation.

118 British Airways, four Aer Lingus Boeing 757 and up to 15 Iberia long-haul aircrafts will be powered with Gogo’s 2Ku technology thanks to a partnership with International Airlines Group (IAG).

Michael Small, Gogo's president and CEO said, "2Ku is delivering a ground-like performance to aircraft flying around the world today. But one of the many benefits of 2Ku is that it's built on an open architecture and can leverage numerous Ku satellites around the world today and new advancements in the Ku-band coming online in the future. This means the technology will get even better over time and will provide passengers with a superior connectivity experience now and in the future."

The first British Airways aircraft is expected to be in service early next year. The bulk of the installations are expected to be completed by 2019.
