"We couldn't be more excited to work with Aeromexico on bringing Gogo
connectivity and Gogo Vision to Mexico and beyond in North and South America,"
said Gogo's president and CEO, Michael Small.  "We know from our extensive
experience that having connectivity has become a competitive advantage for
airlines.  This is the age of the mobile Internet and passengers are used to
being connected wherever they are.  We look forward to supporting Aeromexico's
leadership in the region as they connect their passengers in flight to more
than 80 destinations within Mexico and around the world."

As part of providing end-to-end solutions for any fleet anywhere, the new
service will utilize Gogo's Ku-band satellite service for Aeromexico's 737
aircraft, and Inmarsat's SwiftBroadband satellite service for their regional
jets. Gogo expects both its connectivity service and Gogo Vision to be
available to Aeromexico passengers on the second half of 2014.

"As the airline that connects Mexico and Mexico with the world, we look
forward to being the first Mexican carrier and the first in Latin America to
offer our passengers in-flight Wi-Fi via Gogo, the leader in this space," said
Aeromexico's CEO, Andrés Conesa. "By adding connectivity and Gogo Vision, we
are continuing to bring our clients a world class service and fulfilling our
vision of bringing people closer together, whether literally or virtually."

"Gogo is a strong partner for Inmarsat, both for our current SwiftBroadband
service and for GX Aviation, our global Ka-band network, which is scheduled to
be available in 2015," said Miranda Mills, Inmarsat President, Aviation.
"We're very pleased Aeromexico will benefit from the broad range and
flexibility of Inmarsat's portfolio, offering connectivity solutions
regardless of aircraft size and operations, for both passengers and crew."
