Gogo has been granted a Supplemental Type Certificate (STC) from the Federal Aviation Administration to install its Ku-band satellite technology on the last remaining aircraft in the Delta Air Lines (Delta) international fleet.
The new STC for Delta’s B777-200ER jets follows from Gogo receiving STCs for the airline’s Boeing 757-200, 767-400, 747-400 and 767-300 models, as well as Airbus A330s. The telecommunications provider hopes to complete installation of its Ku-band service on Delta’s entire international fleet during 2016.
“Clearing the necessary regulatory hurdles to provide this service to an aircraft flying anywhere around the globe is no small feat and is something that Gogo has gotten exceptionally good at doing,” said Michael Small, Gogo's president and CEO. “With all of the needed STCs for Delta's international fleet completed, we can now focus our attention on installations and bringing Wi-Fi to passengers as they fly all over the world.”
