Gogo has announced that its Gogo Vision wireless in-flight entertainment (W-IFE) product has been installed on more than 2,000 aircraft.
"We know that passengers want entertainment on their own devices. We also know that almost everyone boards a plane with at least one Wi-Fi enabled device. Gogo Vision was built to take advantage of this trend," explained Ash ElDifrawi, Gogo's chief commercial officer. "It has become successful because weight matters in aviation. When compared to traditional IFE solutions, Gogo is much lighter weight, requires less maintenance and is lower cost."
In the past year, Gogo has added its Gogo Vision product to more than 1,000 aircraft, and now more than 2,200 commercial aircraft are outfitted with the technology and more than 1 million videos are being watched through Gogo Vision each month.
"We continue to develop digital products and services that leverage our connectivity technology in support of our mission: to advance aviation by connecting every aircraft," continued ElDifrawi. "Whether that's giving passengers access to the internet and a host of IFE options or building products and services that support airline operations, we continue to build products and services that are advancing aviation."
