Gogo to install 2Ku technology on new A350 aircraft

Gogo (NASDAQ: GOGO) has partnered with Airbus subsidiary´s Airbus Corporate Jet Centre (ACJC) to install, on retrofit basis, its ground-breaking in-flight connectivity technology — 2Ku — on new Airbus A350 aircraft, the company said.

Until now, only first-generation gimbaled antennas have been available for the A350. Under this new agreement, airlines may elect to add Gogo´s 2Ku system to the A350 on a retrofit basis with a factory authorized installation from ACJC. Delta Air Lines will be the first customer for such installation and expects delivery of its first 2Ku-equipped A350 in 2017.

With more than two decades of experience, Gogo provides in-flight connectivity and wireless entertainment services for commercial and business fleets around the world.
