Gogo’s 2Ku in-flight connectivity service is now operational with Aeromexico.
The first of the carrier’s aircraft to fly with 2Ku is a Boeing 737-800 serving several destinations in the Americas. Today, the airline has five aircraft installed with the new 2Ku system and will be free to passengers for a limited time.
“This is a ground-breaking milestone for Gogo as it signifies that the 2Ku era has officially taken flight,” explained Michael Small, Gogo's president and CEO. “Aeromexico was the first to commit to the service and we couldn't be more excited to have their passengers be the first to experience this game changing technology. The great news for Aeromexico is they get a leading technology today that will only get better in the near future as newer high-throughput satellites come online.”
In addition to 2Ku, Gogo's wireless in-flight entertainment solution, Gogo Vision, is now flying on 11 Boeing 737-700 and Embraer aircraft flying across Aeromexico's regional network.
“As Mexico's global airline, we continue to push the envelope in terms of improving the passenger experience,” stated Andres Conesa, Aeromexico's CEO. “This partnership will bring the best connectivity technology to our passengers so they can stay connected within Mexico and abroad.”
