Gogo goes live on first Delta international aircraft

By Tanya Filippelli

Gogo has announced that the first aircraft of Delta Air Line's long-haul international fleet has gone live with Gogo’s connectivity service.  Passengers flying on Delta’s 747-400 between Los Angeles and Tokyo-Narita were the first to experience the service.

The aircraft is also the first aircraft flying with Gogo’s Ku-band satellite service, which will be deployed on across Delta’s international fleet.

“Gogo has built and operationalized a network that has the ability to provide connectivity related services to Delta’s entire fleet of domestic and international aircraft from regional jets to 777s – almost anywhere they fly around the globe,” said Gogo’s president and CEO, Michael Small. “Delta will soon have more than 1,000 planes including all two-class regional, domestic and international aircraft flying with Gogo’s connectivity services.”

Gogo is scheduled to complete the installation of Wi-Fi service on Delta’s entire international fleet, including its Boeing 777, 767, 747, Airbus 330 and transoceanic Boeing 757 aircraft operating on international, long-haul routes, by the end of 2015.
