Gogo announced today that Air France has launched a commercial service with Gogo’s 2Ku high-speed satellite-based inflight connectivity system on its first two aircraft – an Airbus A330 and a Boeing 777.

John Wade, President of Commercial Aviation at Gogo, said: “Air France has reached an exciting milestone as it brings its first Airbus and Boeing aircraft online, giving its passengers access to high-speed Wi-Fi on long-haul flights.

“As we continue to install aircraft with 2Ku, we remain highly focused on performance in order to provide a great experience on every aircraft, every flight.”

Installations are under way for the balance of Air France’s long-haul fleet of 83 aircraft.
