Gogo's 2Ku picked by Air Canada for C-Series

By Rick Lundstrom

Gogo will supply its 2Ku inflight connectivity solution to Air Canada for its Bombardier CS300 aircraft, the company announced last week.

The technology will be installed as a line-fit option at Bombardier.

"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," said Oakleigh Thorne, Gogo's president and CEO in the April 9 release. "We also are excited to work with Bombardier to have this technology installed at the factory."

Air Canada has 45 CS300 aircraft on order with an option for an additional 30 aircraft. The airline now has more than 170 narrow and widebody aircraft committed to the Gogo technology.

More than 2,000 aircraft are slated to be installed with Gogo's 2Ku on 16 of the airlines.
