Following approval to install its Ku-band satellite service on Delta’s B747-400 fleet, Gogo has now been granted a Supplemental Type Certificate (STC) from the FAA to equip the system on the airline’s A330 aircraft.
Gogo's Ku-band satellite connectivity service is currently in the final phases of customer testing on Delta's 747-400 aircraft with completion of installation for the full 747-400 fleet targeted for the middle of 2014. With the newly-issued A330 STC, Gogo and Delta can begin initial testing of the service on the carrier's A330 fleet before the service goes live to consumers.
Gogo expects to install its Ku-band connectivity service on Delta's entire international fleet by the end of 2015.
