Gogo Names Delta First International Connectivity Partner

On the heels of several Gogo announcements regarding its deployment of a Ku-band satellite solution for international connectivity services, Delta Air Lines (DL) has announced it will begin offering the service on its long-haul international fleet of over 150 aircraft beginning in early 2013. The air-to-ground Gogo inflight Internet service is already equipped on its entire fleet of 550 domestic mainline aircraft.

Gogo last month announced a strategic MOU with global satellite operator SES for Ku-band satellite internet access (ATW Daily News, June 29), following an agreement with AeroSat for the satellite antenna, radome, antenna control and modem unit and high power transceiver (ATW Daily News, May 24).

Once completely outfitted in 2015, DL expects to operate approximately 1,000 Wi-Fi equipped aircraft worldwide. More than 800 DL aircraft—including all DL Connection two-class regional jets—are equipped with the service, accounting for more than 3,000 flights daily.
