American Airlines will equip its new Airbus A320 family and Boeing 737 deliveries with Gogo’s Ku-band satellite and next generation Air to Ground technology – ATG-4.
The dual systems are expected to enable the aircraft with seamless in-flight internet service on domestic and international flights. Installations will occur as the new aircraft are delivered to American beginning in 2013.
"Installing the two systems helps ensure these aircraft will stay connected wherever they fly, whether they’re flying domestically or headed to an international destination," commented Gogo’s president and CEO, Michael Small. "American’s decision to use both solutions is further acknowledgment of the significant advantages of the dual system for an enhanced customer experience."
Gogo was previously selected to outfit existing MD-80 and Boeing 737, 757 and 767 aircraft in American’s domestic fleet and is currently available on more than 400 American aircraft.
