Gogo has been selected by United Airlines to install its in-flight internet service on its two-cabin regional jet fleet.

Installation of the Wi-Fi services, which will involve more than 200 aircraft, is expected to begin later this year.

The United Express aircraft will be the first regional jets in the US to be outfitted with Gogo’s ATG-4, which more than triples the peak speeds compared with Gogo’s original ATG service that launched in 2008.

United and Gogo have also agreed to partner on offering in-flight entertainment on two-cabin regional jets, beginning early 2015, enabling passengers to watch movies and television shows on their Wi-Fi-enabled devices.

Michael Small, Gogo’s president and CEO, said: “United has been a great partner of ours and we are excited to extend our in-flight Internet service to a large part of their regional fleet.

“We are also excited to bring their passengers personal device entertainment, as we have long believed that you need multiple technologies to service the needs of all aircraft types and each route that those aircraft fly.”

Along with regional jet Wi-Fi and personal device entertainment, late next year, United plans to begin a trial of Gogo’s 2Ku satellite Wi-Fi on five of the carrier’s aircraft that operate its “Premium Service” between New York JFK and Los Angeles, and New York JFK and San Francisco.

These aircraft currently offer Gogo’s ATG-4 product.
