Gogo announced today that Aeromexico will install its 2Ku inflight connectivity system on an additional nine Boeing 737-800NGs, bringing the total to 29 aircraft.
Today, 20 of Aeromexico’s 737-800NG aircraft are flying with Gogo’s 2Kutechnology.
Dave Bijur, Gogo’s SVP and Regional President for the Americas, said: “Aeromexico was one of the first airlines to commit and deploy 2Ku and we are excited to extend our partnership and bring the industry’s leading inflight connectivity solution to their passengers.”
Andres Castañeda, Aeromexico’s Chief Marketing and Customer Experience Officer, added: “We are delighted to continue to work with Gogo to offer inflight connectivity access on even more flights across the Aeromexico network.
“More and more passengers expect to be connected wherever they fly and we are delivering that capability on more and more aircraft.”
The new aircraft are expected to be installed in 2018.
Gogo signed a definitive agreement with Aeromexico to provide in-flight internet and wireless in-flight entertainment services on at least 58 Embraer and Boeing 737 aircraft back in August 2014.
Michael Small, Gogo’s president and CEO, said then: “We couldn’t be more excited to work with Aeromexico to bring Gogo connectivity and Gogo’s wireless in-flight entertainment solution – Gogo Vision – to Mexico and beyond.
“Aeromexico’s commitment to 2Ku is evidence of the advantages that it brings to the market – especially for aircraft that operate in tropical regions around the world.”
Gogo previously announced in December 2013 that it had agreed on the principal terms and conditions with Aeromexico related to the service.
