Gogo, Boeing Team to Pursue In-flight Connectivity Solutions on Boeing
Partnership Represents Crucial First Step in Making Gogo's Suite of Technology
Solutions Available on New Boeing Aircraft Orders
ITASCA, Ill., April 10, 2014
ITASCA,Ill., April 10, 2014 /PRNewswire/ --Gogo (NASDAQ: GOGO), a leading
aircraft communications service provider to the global aviation industry, has
agreed to a technical services agreement (TSA) with Boeing to evaluate Gogo's
suite of technology solutions on Boeing commercial aircraft.
The agreement initiates the evaluation process for potential installation on
new Boeing aircraft orders. Gogo is targeting to have line-fit evaluations
completed for its ATG-4 in 2015 and satellite solutions in 2016.
"As Gogo continues to retro-fit aircraft with its various connectivity
solutions, it's crucial to work towards line-fit of these solutions for all
new orders so each aircraft comes off the line with Gogo connectivity already
installed and ready for service from day one," said Michael Small, Gogo's
president and CEO.
In addition, Gogo currently has an agreement in place with Boeing for line-fit
provisions for its ATG-4 technologies on 737NG aircraft.
The provisioning will allow airlines to make some modifications needed on new
aircraft to improve the installation process for the ATG-4 service after an
airline takes delivery. The provisioning is an important step to achieving
true line-fit capabilities in the future.
"By taking care of some of the aircraft modification needs at the
manufacturing level, this provisioning agreement will make the installation
process much smoother after an airline takes delivery of the new aircraft,"
Gogo is the global leader of in-flight connectivity and wireless in-flight
digital entertainment solutions. Using Gogo's exclusive products and services,
passengers with Wi-Fi enabled devices can get online on more than 2,000 Gogo
equipped commercial aircraft. In-flight connectivity partners include
Aeromexico, American Airlines, Air Canada, AirTran Airways, Alaska Airlines,
Delta Air Lines, Japan Airlines, United Airlines, US Airways and Virgin
America. In-flight entertainment partners include Aeromexico, American
Airlines, Delta Air Lines, Japan Airlines, Scoot and US Airways. In addition
to its commercial airline business, Gogo has more than 6,300 business aircraft
outfitted with its communications services.
Back on the ground, Gogo's 700+ employees in Itasca, IL, Broomfield, CO and
various locations overseas are working to continually redefine flying as a
productive, socially connected, and all-around more satisfying experience.
