Gogo has announced that the first aircraft in Delta’s long-haul international fleet has gone live with Gogo’s inflight connectivity service.

Passengers flying on Delta’s 747-400 aircraft from Los Angeles to Tokyo, and from Atlanta to Tokyo, will be the first to experience the service.

The aircraft is also the first flying with Gogo’s Ku-band satellite service, which will be deployed on across Delta’s international fleet.

Michael Small, Gogo’s president and CEO, said:”Gogo has built and operationalised a network that has the ability to provide connectivity-related services to Delta’s entire fleet of domestic and international aircraft from regional jets to 777s – almost anywhere they fly around the globe.

“Delta will soon have more than 1,000 planes including all two-class regional, domestic and international aircraft flying with Gogo’s connectivity services.”

Gogo is scheduled to complete the installation of Wi-Fi service on Delta’s entire international fleet, including its Boeing 777, 767, 747, Airbus 330 and transoceanic Boeing 757 aircraft operating on international, long-haul routes, by the end of 2015.

Gogo is also making it easier for passengers on any Gogo-equipped airline to gain access to its inflight connectivity. The company announced that it has joined forces with Samsung to offer a full year (up to 36 flights) of Gogo inflight internet access with the purchase of any of a range of Samsung tablets.

Accessing the free sessions is easy – passengers simply launch their internet browsers on any Gogo-equipped flight and will automatically be directed to a special landing page that will grant them internet access.
