Aeromexico has agreed in principle with Gogo to install its in-flight internet and wireless in-flight entertainment (IFE) solution, Gogo Vision, on at least 75 of the airline’s aircraft.
"We couldn't be more excited to work with Aeromexico on bringing Gogo connectivity and Gogo Vision to Mexico and beyond in North and South America," said Gogo's president and CEO, Michael Small. "We look forward to supporting Aeromexico's leadership in the region as they connect their passengers in flight to more than 80 destinations within Mexico and around the world."
As part of providing end-to-end solutions, the new service will utilise Gogo's Ku-band satellite service for Aeromexico's 737 aircraft, and Inmarsat's SwiftBroadband satellite service for their regional jets. Gogo expects both its connectivity service and Gogo Vision to be available to Aeromexico passengers in the second half of 2014.
"As the airline that connects Mexico and Mexico with the world, we look forward to being the first Mexican carrier and the first in Latin America to offer our passengers in-flight Wi-Fi via Gogo," commented Aeromexico's CEO, Andrés Conesa.
"We're very pleased Aeromexico will benefit from the broad range and flexibility of Inmarsat's portfolio, offering connectivity solutions regardless of aircraft size and operations, for both passengers and crew," added Miranda Mills, Inmarsat President, Aviation.
