Gogo has announced that it has received approval for installation of its 2Ku Ku-band satellite inflight connectivity system on the Airbus A321neo.

In a blog posting Gogo says approval for the A321neo is the latest in a long line of STCs it has received that cover 2Ku installations on a wide variety of aircraft, from the smallest single-aisle aircraft , all the way up to the massive Airbus A380.

It says gaining the STC for the A321neo is a major milestone for Gogo, especially since several of our airline partners already have this aircraft in their fleet, or are awaiting delivery.

In April Gogo’s 2Ku was been chosen by Air Canada for its Bombardier CS300 aircraft. The technology will be installed as a line-fit option at Bombardier.

Oakleigh Thorne, Gogo’s President and CEO, said: “Air Canada was the first in Canada to deploy the service on their entire mainline fleet of aircraft. They have been at the forefront of technology adoption and we are excited to deploy 2Ku on additional aircraft.

“We also are excited to work with Bombardier to have this technology installed at the factory.”

Gogo said then that more than 2,000 aircraft are now scheduled to be installed with its 2Ku technology, representing 16 of the world’s leading airlines.

More than 650 aircraft are now flying with the Ku-band inflight connectivity technology.
